Access Hollywood host Nancy O'Dell and husband Keith Zubchevich welcomed a baby girl, Ashby Grace, on Monday, O'Dell tells PEOPLE.

The girl was 7 lbs., 9 oz. and born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

"We are beyond elated and look forward to appreciating today and every beautiful day to come with our new daughter," O'Dell says in a statement. "It is even more special given she is named after her great-grandfather and was born on my father's birthday. She made for quite a birthday present to her new grandfather."

"Also," O'Dell adds, "I love epidurals."

O'Dell, 41, and Zubchevich, 38, wed in 2005 after meeting on a security line at Burbank's Bob Hope airport in 2004.

In December, they announced they were expecting. This is the first child for O'Dell; Zubchevich has two sons from a previous marriage: Tyler, 11, and Carson, 8.

Ashby is named after O'Dell's late grandfather; her middle name comes from the church where O'Dell's parents were married, Grace United Methodist Church in Union, SC. Grace is also a name in Zubchevich's family.
