Congratulations are in order for Abby Elliott! The former Saturday Night Live cast member and her husband, Bill Kennedy, welcomed their first child together, a baby girl named Edith Pepper Kennedy.

The new mom shared the exciting news on her Instagram on Friday, also sharing a beautiful black-and-white photo of herself holding her daughter in her arms with her husband at her side.

"Edith Pepper Kennedy❤️ the love of our lives," the comedian captioned her post. Elliott's comment section quickly filled with congratulatory messages from her friends and followers.

Vanessa Bayer wrote, "Congrats!!!😍😍😍💗💗💗," while Dan Levy left a heart eye emoji.

Elliott had revealed she was pregnant just last month. The star shared a selfie of her and Kennedy in celebration of their four-year anniversary, as well as a pic of her growing baby bump. "Happy 4 Years my love! Here’s to many more wonderful adventures with you— the greatest one of all coming next month❤️," she captioned the post.

Earlier this year, Elliott opened up to Kelly Clarkson on her talk show about how she and her husband were trying to have a baby via IVF treatments. The actress joked that her Valentine's Day would be "very romantic" as Kennedy would have to give her hormone "shots in [her] butt." 

"The hormones are very intense, and so many people go through this and we don't talk about it enough, I think, as women," she told Clarkson. "We need to raise more understanding and awareness."

There has been a recent baby boom in Hollywood, with Nicki Minaj, Desi Perkins, Nikki and Brie Bella among many others welcoming babies in their lives. See more in the video below.
