Actress Agnes Bruckner and her boyfriend Alefaio Brewer have welcomed their first child together, a son named Sebastian Lopeti Brewer.  Bruckner announced the news via People magazine and said, “We’re so excited to welcome our lion cub into this world…He’s truly a blessing and we couldn’t be more happy and proud!”

Sebastian was born on Wednesday, March 30th; he was a few days past his due date, weighing 8 lbs. 15 oz. and measuring 21.5 inches long.

Bruckner, who plays the recurring character of Lily on Once Upon a Time, announced her pregnancy in October and described impending motherhood as something she had always dreamed about.  While the star of Lifetime’s Anna Nicole Story leads a relatively private life by Hollywood standards, she has shared a number of photos throughout her pregnancy on her Instagram account.

In a recent interview, Once Upon a Time writer and producer Adam Horowitz assured fans that while Lily would not be seen in the remainder of Season 6, the character would make a return. He made the promise in a recent interview with IGN, stating: “We haven’t forgotten the story and we want to return to it.” When he noted that the show was already working around the pregnancies of stars Ginnifer Goodwin and Emilie De Ravin, his writing partner Edward Kitsis joked, “Everyone literally is pregnant. Including us…This is the most fertile show on television.”
