Maggie Gyllenhaal and her fiancé, Peter Sarsgaard, have welcomed their first child, a rep for the actress confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

The baby girl, who was born Tuesday afternoon in a New York City hospital, is named Ramona.

"Everyone is healthy and happy," Gyllenhaal's rep, Amanda Silverman, tells PEOPLE.

Gyllenhaal, 28, and Sarsgaard, 35, announced their pregnancy and engagement exclusively to PEOPLE in April.

An onlooker who spotted Gyllenhaal at the Cancún airport that month told PEOPLE, "She looked really happy. Little kids would run by and she would smile and giggle. I thought, either she's the nicest person in the world or she has major baby lust!"

Saarsgard's Kinsey costar Laura Linney tells PEOPLE of the new father, "He's going to be a magnificent dad. That is a lucky child, those are lucky parents. And I am very happy for all of them!"

The couple have been together for more than four years. They costarred in 2003's In God's Hands, a low-budget feature produced by Steven Soderbergh that was never released.
