Alicia Silverstone's newborn will be right at home with the Pilots and Moroccans of the world: the actress just delivered her first child, a baby boy named Bear Blu.
Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki welcomed their son, who weighed in at 7 pounds, 15 ounces, on May 5, her rep confirms.
"We are all three in love!" Silverstone, who wed Jarecki in 2005, writes on her blog. "I'm so grateful to this community for all the love, support, good wishes and happy vibes you've sent me during my pregnancy ... it has been wonderful. Thank you all!"
Silverstone announced in January that she and Jarecki were expecting, fulfilling her longtime wish to become a mom.
"I've been wanting to have a baby since I was 2 years old," she said in April 2010. "I'm destined to be a mother."
