Anna Chlumsky Welcomes First Child: Penelope Joan

Congratulations to Anna Chlumsky and Shaun So.

The My Girl actress and her entrepreneur husband, both 32, have a girl of their own. The couple welcomed daughter Penelope Joan So on Thursday, July 11 in New York City, PEOPLE reports.

“She’s a really good mix between my husband and me,” the Veep actress tells the mag. “When she’s with him, you see him, and when she’s with me, you see me. She’s a perfect mix.”

She adds: “We think she has my mouth, but it’s hard to tell. Even the color of her eyes, they are different in different light. But she has a really full head of hair.

It’s been an event-filled week for the actress, who just earned her first Emmy nomination for her role on Veep.

“I’m still in shock. When I got the call I wasn’t sleeping because I was breastfeeding my daughter,” she says. “It was neat because it was me and my husband and my daughter all in the room getting the news at the same time. When [my manager] told me, it was that nervous, happy, appreciative laughter. I just laughed a lot! It feels really great to have your work noticed.”

She adds: “I’m really, really happy. I’m just smiley. I have this new bundle of love that’s now in my life. She has made my life even better.”

And it sounds like she’s adjusting well to new motherhood.

“I’m really surprised how real it is,” Anna says. “What’s really strange is how fast it happened. You prepare for so long, and all of a sudden the baby’s here … It’s seriously the best thing. Holding her is fantastic. It’s one of the more enjoyable things. It doesn’t get boring at all. I could hold her all day.”
