Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott welcomed their second child, a daughter, on Monday, PEOPLE has confirmed.

Stella Doreen McDermott was born at 3:13 p.m. in a Los Angeles hospital via C-section. She weighed 6 lbs., 8 oz. and was 19 3/4 inches long, a rep for Spelling says.

The couple also have a 1-year-old son, Liam Aaron. McDermott, 41, has a son, Jack, 9, from a previous marriage.

Spelling, 35, revealed she was expecting a girl in March.

“I’ve always wanted a little girl since I’m such a girly girly,” said Spelling, who had an emotional reaction when she found out. “I immediately started crying. I couldn’t believe it. I have my beautiful little boy and now I’ll have my little girl! It’s amazing.”

The actress, who reconciled with her mom Candy after Liam was born, hopes to correct the mistakes of the past.

“Because my mother and I have always had a complicated relationship, I always wanted a girl to prove that the past doesn’t have to repeat itself,” she told PEOPLE. “I can’t wait to be a great mom and friend to her.”

Spelling recently signed on for a recurring role on The CW’s 90210 as Donna Martin, the same character she played on her dad Aaron Spelling’s hit TV show Beverly Hills, 90201. She’s currently filming the third season of her reality show Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, premiering on Oxygen on June 17.
