Turns out Friday the 13th was a lucky day for Ioan Gruffudd!

The actor, 39, and his wife Alice Evans, 45, welcomed their second child — another daughter! — on that date, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“We are beyond thrilled to announce the arrival of our daughter, Elsie Marigold, on Sept. 13th,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement.

“A little sister for [4-year-old] Ella Betsi. We both feel very grateful and very blessed.”

Gruffudd, who recently starred on Ringer, and Evans, who played Esther on The Vampire Diaries, announced the pregnancy in May.

E! Online was first to report the news of Elsie’s arrival.
