It’s a boy for Paula Garces!

The Devious Maids star, 39, and her husband Antonio Hernandez welcomed their first child together on Wednesday, Nov. 20, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

Son Antonio Andres Hernandez was born at 4:40 p.m. weighing in at 7 lbs., 5 oz. and measuring 20½ inches long.

“After a difficult 14-hour labor, my mom had to have an emergency c-section,” the actress’s daughter Skye, 21, tells PEOPLE. “My brother was born beautiful and healthy, thank God, and Mom is doing well also.”

In July, the All My Children actress, who recently celebrated her baby shower, told PEOPLE her husband was looking forward to adding a baby boy to the family.

“He was so excited because we already experienced a baby girl with Skye,” she said.

But most of all, Garces — who had all but given up hope on having a second child after two miscarriages – was elated to finally be pregnant again.

“I really just wanted a happy, healthy baby,” she said.
