Former Hercules star Kevin Sorbo and his wife, actress Sam Jenkins Sorbo, welcomed their third child in Henderson, Nevada, on Sunday, an 8 lb. 7 oz. baby girl named Octavia Flynn Sorbo, PEOPLE has learned.

"My wife is knocked out right now," Sorbo tells PEOPLE, "but she and the baby are doing well. We're all happy and doing fine."

Adds Sorbo, "When we got married, I told my wife that we were going to have three kids. First two boys and then a girl. I can't (make predictions about) the stock market, but with babies I have been exactly right."

Sorbo, 47, and Jenkins, 40, already have two boys: Braeden Cooper, 4, and Shane Haaken, 1.

The couple met on Hercules' New Zealand set in 1996 when Sam made a guest appearance. They wed on Jan. 5, 1998.
