Actress Katey Sagal and her husband, writer-producer Kurt Sutter, 43, welcomed their first child, daughter Esmé Louise Sutter, on Jan. 10, PEOPLE has learned exclusively. The baby was born via surrogate, her rep confirms.

Sagal, 52, who was most recently seen in a recurring role on ABC's Boston Legal (and rose to fame playing Married with Children's Peg Bundy), married Sutter, a producer for FX's The Shield, on Oct. 2, 2004 at their home in Los Angeles.

"The ceremony was very homey," said Sagal at the time. "I got everything I ever wanted – even a disco ball!"

The couple's new daughter joins Sarah, 12, and Jackson, 10, Sagal's children from a previous marriage.
