She may still be pregnant for the second time on ‘One Tree Hill,’ but Bethany is officially a first-time mommy in real life!

Congratulations are in order! One Tree Hill star Bethany Joy Galeotti and her husband Michael welcomed a beautiful baby girl named Maria! Funny thing is, she’s expecting a baby girl on One Tree Hill, too — except Haley Scott‘s baby will be named Lydia. We’re so happy for Bethany!

Will One Tree Hill get a ninth season? Sophia Bush tells us, ‘I doubt it!’

“Michael and I are pleased to announce the arrival of our beautiful girl, Maria,” Bethany wrote on her website. “I’ll probably be MIA from my blog for a few weeks as we adjust to life with our girl, but I’m hoping to bring in a few ‘guest editors’! Bless you guys and thanks for all your thoughts and prayers!”

‘One Tree Hill’ ladies are ‘all lovely’, Sharon Lawrence tells Hollybaby

Bethany’s co-star and friend Sharon Lawrence recently told HollyBaby.com that Bethany “was born to be a mother. What a lucky kid. … Just has such a calm, centered, happy mother.”
