She’s finally here!

Leonor Varela welcomed her second child, a daughter, with producer Lucas Akoskin on Wednesday, Feb. 25 in Santa Monica, California, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.com.

“We are deeply grateful for the arrival of our daughter, Luna Mae Akosin, to our family,” she tells PEOPLE. “Her 8 lbs., 11 oz. of pure love have made us very proud parents for the second time.”

“Feeling so blessed this angel just landed in our arms. Welcome to the family Luna Mae!” Varela, 42, announced on Instagram, sharing a black-and-white snapshot of the two snuggling.

Varela, known for her former role on Dallas, and Akoskin are also parents to 2-year-old son Matteo.

The actress, whose due date was last Friday, had been spending the past few days determined to jumpstart her daughter’s delivery.

“What have I not done to try and get her to come out!” Varela, who announced her pregnancy in September, joked on Instagram.

Sharing photos of herself walking (and jumping!) on the beach, the expectant mom wrote, “Walk walk walk and then hopefully something will happen right?”
