It’s a boy for Brothers & Sisters star Sarah Jane Morris and her husband Ned Brower.

Emmett Andrew Brower arrived on Sunday, Jan. 24, Morris’ rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

New dad Ned, drummer for the band Rooney, is clearly proud of his actress wife, writing on his Facebook:

“S.O.N. (Son of Ned) hath arrived. Emmett Andrew Brower weighs in at 8.2 lbs. Sarah labored for 15 hours w/ NO meds … she is a total powerhouse and my hero.”

The couple, who were college sweethearts and wed in Feb. 2005, announced the pregnancy in Aug. In Oct., Sarah Jane shared that they were expecting a boy and expressed her desire for a natural childbirth.

“I’m excited, curious, and terrified about doing it, but something in my gut is telling me that it’s an experience I don’t want to miss out on — even though I know it is going to be painful and hard,” Sarah Jane, 32, explained. “It is called ‘labor’ after all! But I look at it as a privilege we have as women, and I think that it will only make me stronger as a person.”
