Amanda Peet and hubby David Benioff welcomed their third child into the world on December 7th. The new baby is a boy and the happy parents have named him Henry Peet Friedman. The A Lot Like Love actress and the Game of Thrones co-creator are also parents to daughters Molly, who is four, and Frances, who is seven.

Amanda Peet first shared her baby bump with the world when she appeared with her hubby at the Emmy Awards this fall, where Game of Thrones was up for 19 awards. At that time Peet shared the excitement of their soon-to-be new family member.

“[My daughters] are very excited now,” she told People at that time. “We’ll see what happens when he actually arrives!”

Amanda Peet made a name for herself in films, stage, and TV. In 2012 and 2013 she played the role of Laura Hellinger on The Good Wife for seven episodes. She is active in Every Child By Two (ECBT), which is a group that strongly advocates the administering of childhood vaccines. That said, you can be certain that Molly and Frances have received their vaccines and that little Henry will as well, when the time is right.

Congratulations are certainly in order for both Amanda Peet and David Benioff on the birth of their first son and third child.
