Welcome to motherhood, Emilie de Ravin!

The Once Upon a Time star and her boyfriend, Eric Bilitch, welcomed their first child, a daughter, on Saturday. The 34-year-old actress, who plays Belle on the ABC series, announced the happy news on Twitter Sunday night. And her name? Fit for a princess!

"Welcome to the big wide world! Vera Audrey de Ravin-Bilitch born March 12th 2016," de Ravin tweeted. "Couldn't be happier! So in love with our little girl!"

Bilitch echoed the same sentiment on social media, tweeting, "Madly in love with our gorgeous girl. And her momma is the most wonderful woman on earth! Could not be happier!"

De Ravin's Once co-star, Robert Carlyle, quickly congratulated the new parents. "Huge Congratulations Em..! Sending loads and loads of love to you, Eric and little Vera at this special time xxx," he tweeted.

The happy news is set to continue in Storybrooke, as two of de Ravin's other co-stars, Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas, are expecting their second son in the coming weeks.

The Lost alum announced her pregnancy on Twitter in October, and she and her beau have remained active on social media as they chronicled their road to first-time parenthood.

In fact, one of de Ravin's most recent Instagrams, posted just three weeks ago, was a sweet photo of her baby bump photo alongside the caption "truelove."
