"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.
