Gruffudd, 35, and Lost actress Evans, 38, knew the sex of the baby prior to delivery, but they kept it private.

“I m sure we have no idea what we are heading into,” Gruffudd told PEOPLE in July of impending parenthood. “But we both love each other so much and really hope that we will create an environment of love and happiness.”
