Morena Baccarin Baby Born — ‘Homeland’ Actress Welcomes A Baby Boy

Morena, 34, welcomed a darling baby boy named Julius on Oct. 22. He was born at Glendale Adventist Medical Center in Glendale, Cali. and weighed in at just under 8 pounds. 

“Julius and his mother are happy and healthy,” the couple’s rep told People.

Morena’s baby was born breech, but she was able to deliver naturally. “I’m so happy I was able to deliver with Dr. [Ronald] Wu,” Morena told People of her specialist. “Breech delivery is a dying art and he gave me the birth experience I wanted.”

Morena Baccarin Shows Off Growing Baby Bump In Tight Dresses

Morena didn’t let her growing baby bump get in the way of her fashion sense — or her stunning red carpet look at the 2013 Emmy Awards. Though she looked just about ready to pop at the Sept. 22 event, the stunning beauty sizzled in a gorgeous red gown. Morena told Jimmy Kimmel inn Sept. that she would not be missing the Emmys — even if her baby made an early arrival!

“I told myself that I was going to go, and if I went into labor at the Emmys, I was going to sit through it,” Morena told Jimmy. “I mean, no baby comes in four-and-a-half hours anyway, or maybe it’s like 12 hours. I don’t know how long the Emmys are.”

Morena even joked that her doctor was on call — and even her date for Emmy night!

Though she looked phenomenal in her tight evening wear, the pregnant actress posted a cheeky message to her Twitter account on July 4, earlier on in her pregnancy:

You know what I’m gonna wear for the rest of my life? Maternity pants. Best invention ever.

Embrace the comfy clothes, Morena — and your darling baby!

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you like the name Julius?
