It’s a boy — a bit early! — for Tisha Campbell-Martin, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. The actress and husband Duane Martin welcomed son Ezekiel Czar Martin on Tuesday, September 8th at 10:20 a.m. in Los Angeles. The baby, who wasn’t due until the 21st of this month, weighed in at 9 lbs., 9 oz and is 23 inches long. Ezekiel joins big brother Xen, 8, at home.

“My baby is sooooo beautiful,” Tisha told ESSENCE.com. “He can’t fit newborn clothes; he’s wearing clothes for three month olds. His cheeks are so fat. He is so healthy. He is just perfect.”

Tisha, who announced the pregnancy in April, had no qualms about being pregnant at 40. “I’m enjoying it. I’m 40, and having a baby!” she told PEOPLE’s Celebrity Baby Blog. “Every moment, every nauseous moment, everything that is good and not so good about being pregnant, I’m enjoying.”

Tisha currently stars in Lifetime Television’s comedy series Rita Rocks, which returns for a second season on Monday, October 5th at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT.
