The sex of the baby is no longer Up In the Air – it's a girl for Vera Farmiga.

The Academy Award-nominated actress and husband Renn Hawkey welcomed their second child on Thursday, Nov. 4, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Daughter Gytta Lubov Hawkey joins big brother Fynn, 22 months, and is "happy and healthy" along with her mother.

The couple had opted for a delivery surprise. "We don't know what we’re having yet. I just want to have a healthy baby," Farmiga, 37, explained earlier this year.
