Six Feet Under star Lauren Ambrose and her husband, Sam Handel, welcomed their first child, son Orson Handel, on Tuesday in New York City.

"The family is very happy, the baby is happy and Lauren is doing great," a friend of the couple says.

Ambrose, 28, met Handel, a photographer, at a party in Los Angeles. They married in September 2001 in Massachusetts.

In 2003, Ambrose was nominated for an Emmy for her role as Claire Fisher, the hearse-driving little sister in HBO's Six Feet Under. Her new film, Starting Out in the Evening, premieres at the Sundance Film Festival.
