Anne Dudek of Mad Men and her husband, painter Matthew Heller, are parents of their first child, a son.

Akiva was born Dec. 14 and weighed 7 lbs., 7 oz., a rep for the actress tells PEOPLE.

Dudek, 33, whose character was killed off of House last season, plays the nosy neighbor on AMC’s Emmy-winning Mad Men.

She told PEOPLE last summer that she was feeling "great" during her pregnancy and that, “Cheese and sleeping, that’s my life these days.”
