Farmiga gives birth to little girl

Vera Farmiga has given birth to a girl.

Vera Farmiga has given birth to a girl.

The 'Up in the Air' actress - who already has 22-month-old son Fynn with husband Renn Hawkey - had a “happy and healthy” daughter named Gytta Lubov on November 4, her spokeswoman as confirmed.

Having a daughter was a surprise for 37-year-old Vera, as she admitted in May that she and Renn had no plans to find out the gender of the tot.

She said: “We don’t know what we’re having yet. I just want to have a healthy baby.”

Vera had been lined up to star in Madonna’s movie ‘W.E.’ - which tells the story of Britain's King Edward VIII, who abdicated the throne to marry US divorcee Wallis Simpson – but pulled out after finding out she was pregnant.

The Oscar-nominated actress has previously spoken out about how she can't remember what life was like before she became a parent.

She said: "I've played a lot of mothers in my movies and I come from a massive family where the youngest is like 20-something years younger than I am.

"My mother had seven kids and I've sort of been studying her my whole life so I knew what to expect. But the funny part is, since having my son Fynn, I don't remember what life was like before parenthood."
