'King of Queens' Kevin James a New Dad

The sitcom star and his wife, Steffiana De La Cruz, welcome their first child, a girl

King of Queens star Kevin James, 40, and his wife, Steffiana De La Cruz, 30, a model, have welcomed their first child, a girl, PEOPLE has confirmed.

Daughter Sienna-Marie was born Friday, his publicist says. No other details were released.

James and De La Cruz tied the knot in June 2004 at a Catholic church in Dana Point, a beach town in Orange County, Calif., before 180 guests that included Clint Eastwood and Ray Romano. “Kevin was very nervous,” one guest told PEOPLE. “He was sweating.”

After the ceremony guests headed to nearby Laguna Beach for the reception at a resort that was complete with gaming tables and a buffet that included “all kinds of food,” said wedding planner Mindy Weiss, “even McDonald’s.” Eddie Money played for an hour and a half, with James joining in on “Take Me Home Tonight.”

The couple, who met on a blind date, became engaged in October 2003.
