"She’s HERE!!!!" the actress announced on her blog. "Nick, Camden and I are SO excited to announce the birth of our sweet, beautiful baby girl, Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey! She was born January 5th, 2015 at 5:17pm. She weighed in at 7 pounds 15 ounces, is 21 inches long and has already won over all of our hearts."
Accompanying the good news was the very first photo of baby Brooklyn — or at least part of her, as she grasped her mom's hand.
