It’s a girl for John C. McGinley!

The former Scrubs star and wife Nichole welcomed daughter Kate Aleena McGinley on Thursday, June 24 at 5:57 p.m. in Los Angeles, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Baby Kate weighed in at 6 lbs., 2 oz. and was 19 inches long. She joins big sister Billie Grace, 2, as well as brother Max, 12, from McGinley’s previous marriage.

“While bringing Kate into this world, Nichole’s grace and strength was the stuff of heroes,” says McGinley, 50. “It was truly a miraculous delivery to witness and celebrate!”

“We are all soaking up the joy and marveling in her beauty,” adds Nichole, an Ashtanga yoga teacher and birthing doula.

Kate is resting comfortably with her family at home in Malibu.
