Anna Chlumksy and husband Shaun So welcomed their first baby, Penelope Joan So, on Thursday in New York City. The 32-year-old actress, who is known for her role in the 1991 flick "My Girl," told PEOPLE magazine, "She’s a really good mix between my husband and me. When she’s with him, you see him, and when she’s with me, you see me. She’s a perfect mix." Chlumsky and So, a Forbes contributor and military veteran, announced their engagement in 2007 and wed shortly after. The couple announced they were expecting in late March.
Thank you to the amazing doctors and nursing staff at #StLukesRoosevelt. Your care and expertise are inspiring. Super people. :)— Anna Chlumsky (@AnnaChlumsky) July 18, 2013
Chlumksy had a second reason to celebrate today: she received an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Amy Brookheimer on HBO's "Veep." The nominations were announced earlier this morning and the actress told E!, "When I got the call I wasn't sleeping because I was breastfeeding my daughter. It was neat because it was me and my husband and my daughter all in the room getting the news at the same time." Co-stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale also received nods for their lead roles.
