This is the first child for the couple, who married last May 3 in Hawaii amid family and his “Friends” costars after a five-year engagement. Former model Melissa, who recently changed her name from McKnight, has two older children from a previous marriage (Tyler, 13, and Jacquelyn, 9). LeBlanc is close to the kids. As a friend of the couple’s tells PEOPLE, “He’s like a big kid himself, so they have a great time together.”

The birth of Marina is the first “Friends” spinoff since the cast taped their last episode of the series in January. After a 10-year run the NBC series will come to an end in May, but LeBlanc will continue playing his character on a new show, “Joey.”
