The Buckman-Schwimmer Family
It's a girl for David Schwimmer!
The actor-director's wife, photographer Zoe Buckman, delivered their daughter Cleo Buckman Schwimmer on Sunday, May 8 in New York, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Schwimmer, 44, wed the London-born Buckman
, 25, last June after dating since 2007.
Speaking to PEOPLE in 2006 about his desire to start a family, the former Friends
star said he was eager to be a dad – in due time.
"It will happen when it feels right," he said at the time.
"Maybe part of me is waiting for myself to slow down a little and be ready to stay put. I'm confident it's gonna happen."
Schwimmer most recently directed Trust
, starring Clive Owen and Catherine Keener, and will next be heard reprising his role as Melman in Madagascar 3
