The How I Met Your Mother actress and her fiancé, actor Taran Killam, are the proud parents of a baby girl, PEOPLE has learned. Shaelyn Cado Killam arrived on May 16.

While attending an event in January with her co-stars – including fellow pregnant pal Alyson Hannigan – Smulders joked that the pair's topics of conversation were generally focused on baby.

"You really can't help it, because you have babies on the brain, and you can't help but talk about it a lot," she laughed. "From creams, doctors, birth methods, dilation ... You talk about everything."

Fortunately, she had Hannigan – who welcomed daughter Satyana in March – to confide in, with the two often swapping stories on set.

"It's nice because we can just talk about babies all day long, and not be like, 'Okay, this person has to be sick of this,' because you know that she's just as excited as I am," noted Hannigan.

Shaelyn is the first child for the couple, who were engaged in January. The pregnancy was announced last November.
