Shanola Hampton is shamelessly in love: her baby girl is here!

The Shameless star and her husband Daren Dukes welcomed their first child on Monday, Jan. 20, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Daughter Cai MyAnna Dukes weighed in at 6 lbs., 3 oz. and measured 20 inches in length.

“We never knew how much was missing from our life until our baby girl arrived. So blessed, so overjoyed, pure bliss,” the couple tell PEOPLE.

Shortly after the birth, Hampton, 36, shared her excitement on Twitter.

“I thought I knew love before, but now I know love on a completely different level! Can’t believe my baby is here,” she wrote on Tuesday.

In September, Hampton and Dukes, producer of The Dallas Cowboy Show, announced they were expecting a daughter.
