Lucy Liu welcomed her baby boy, Rockwell Lloyd Liu, last week. He was born via a gestational surrogate.

A rep for Lucy Liu confirmed the exciting news in a statement to E! News.

"I can confirm that Lucy Liu is the proud mother of Rockwell Lloyd Liu, brought into the world via gestational carrier," the statement reads.

"Mom and baby are healthy and happy," the rep added.

It was back in 2010 that the Elementary and Charlie's Angels star dished about motherhood in an interview with USA Today.

"I don't have a settling-down time," she said as she joked that her biological clock was broken.

"Someone threw out the battery," she said.

"I never feel like it's too early or too late for anything," she added. "I don't ever think for me that this traditional way is the way to go for me because I haven't had a traditional life."

According to Lucy Liu, Rockwell is her first human baby. The "first baby" credit goes solely to Apple, her beautiful canine baby.

She gave Apple equal time via social media, honoring him on National Dog Day.

"The Apple of my eye for #nationaldogday #lesqueakytoy @le.roar," she captioned the photo.

Congratulations to Lucy Liu--and not just on the birth of her baby boy either. Congrats to her on doing things a bit unconventionally, too.
