Lisa Ling, the host of OWN's Our America, welcomed her first daughter this afternoon, accompanied by her oncologist husband Paul Song.
The couple named their child Jett Ling-Song. She was born at a Santa Monica, CA hospital, weighing 6 pounds and 6 ounces, E! News reported.
OWN, representing Ling and Song, said that the couple are resting comfortably.
"The proud parents are enjoying the first day of parenthood and are looking forward to bringing their daughter home," the statement read.
Her due date had actually been revealed by a close source to the couple.
The source told Radar Online two days ago that the couple was preparing for the coming of the baby.
“They really cannot wait till the baby is born and are counting down the days now," the source said.
Ling announced her pregnancy last year on Anderson Cooper's talk show.
She reportedly wanted to keep it quiet, but could not anymore.
Ling joked, "I was trying to keep it quiet for a long time, but now I'm getting to a point where I just look like I have a beer belly."
