In a case of life imitating art, Jenna Elfman has delivered a baby boy — just before her Accidentally on Purpose character Billie gives birth to her own child.

The actress and husband Bodhi Elfman welcomed a second son, Easton Quinn Monroe Elfman, at 7:53 a.m. Tuesday, Mar. 2nd in Los Angeles, Jenna announced via Twitter Friday. Her rep confirms the birth to PEOPLE, adding that Easton weighed in at 7 lbs., 12 oz.

“He’s an impressive sleeper (thank god!) & I’m his biggest fan,” says the star’s tweet.

The actress’s husband, Bodhi, also took to Twitter Friday, writing, “Shazaam! Easton Quinn Monroe Elfman. Born March 2 @ 7:53AM. Triple Word Score, Grand Slam, Royal Flush! Digging this guy big time.”

Easton joins big brother Story Elias, 2 ½.

Jenna, 38, admits the pregnancy was planned around her show’s shooting schedule.

“It was like an afterthought perk. I thought, ‘Well, if the show gets picked up that could be cool. I can have my next kid and I won’t have to hide it.’ You know, I’m not in my early twenties so I got to get busy.”

The Elfmans, who recently celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary, announced the pregnancy in September.
