Agnes Bruckner is a mom!
The Returned star welcomed her first child, a baby boy, with boyfriend Alefaio Brewer on Wednesday, March 30, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
Son Sebastian Lopeti Brewer was born at 1:15 p.m., weighing 8 lbs. 15 oz. He measured 21.5 inches long.
“We’re so excited to welcome our lion cub into this world,” the couple tell PEOPLE. “He’s truly a blessing and we couldn’t be more happy and proud!”
Sharing a photo of herself with her son Friday evening, Bruckner added, “I’ve never known a love like this. He’s pure magic. Thank you for all the love. We feel all of it.”
The birth of her son is a moment Bruckner, 30, has long been waiting for. “From a young age, I dreamed about being a mom,” she told PEOPLE while announcing the pregnancy in October.
“Now it’s finally happening for real and I couldn’t be more excited.”
Since her announcement, the mom-to-be has shared her pregnancy journey — including shots of her growing baby bump — on social media.
Shortly before welcoming her baby boy, the actress posted a fresh-faced selfie of herself cradling her belly, with the caption, “Still very preggo. Whenever [you’re] ready my prince! Lol my hips don’t lie and they in pain.”
Days later, Bruckner shared another belly shot, captioning it, “My prince, my main man, my love. Can you please come out soon? I can’t wait to smother you with kisses hugs and love already. Momma & Dada are ready!”
