Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany welcomed their first daughter, Agnes Lark Bettany, on May 31. Connelly, 40 and Bettany, 39, announced in December that they were expecting, and Connelly showed off her baby bump at the January premiere of The Dilemma.

The new baby is the couple’s first daughter. They already have two sons – Kai, 13 (whose father is Connelly's ex David Dugan) and Stellan, 7.

While Connelly is ecstatic at the birth, she talked about how difficult her first trimester was to David Letterman. “I'm feeling great – now,” she said. “The first three months were very sketchy. You know how like you have your cell phone and you have to stand in one spot? It was like that with nausea. I had to stand in one spot, which happened to be in front of my refrigerator, which was open with me dipping pretzels in cream cheese and stuffing them in my mouth.”

Connelly and Bettany first met on the set of the Oscar-winning A Beautiful Mind in 2001, and married in Scotland in 2003.
