Congrats are in order for Anna Chlumsky! The ‘Veep’ actress and her husband, Shaun So, welcomed Clara Elizabeth So into the world today, Aug. 26. We couldn’t be more thrilled for the couple and their daughter Penelope Joan, 3, who just became a big sister!
Anna Chlumsky, 35, and her husband Shaun So just became parents for the second time, People has confirmed. Hooray!
Anna and Shaun, a business executive who used to serve in the military, got married in 2008 and welcomed daughter Penelope Joan, 2, in July 2013. The happy couple celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary on March 8, and Anna first revealed her pregnancy via a Facebook video uploaded on April 5. She told People that she just loves being a mom to Penelope: “It’s awesome. I love it. She’s becoming her own person and it’s delicious to watch.” So cute! “She’s really fun and really sweet. And she’s very determined. I love all those things about her,” Anna added. Now she’s got two girls to dote on!
Anna might have missed out on taking home the Emmy award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for Veep last year, but hopefully the talented actress will have more luck taking home the gong at this year’s Emmys. “Personally, I call this season ‘Amy’s Back From Rehab Season,’” Anna told our sister site IndieWire about her workaholic character. “In the second half of last season, she was trying to pull away and see if she could live without this professional addiction of hers. This season she’s asking that same question of herself: ‘Is it possible to have both — to be in this environment and to stay sane?” Fingers crossed that Anna finally lands that Emmy!
