But the little girl’s arrival was well worth the wait. Kate took to Instagram to announce the news of hers and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa’s daughter’s birth. And though the parents haven’t unveiled her first photo just yet, they did share her birthdate and the super sweet meaning behind her unique name.

“She’s here!” Kate wrote on a series of Instagram posts on Wednesday (swipe through to see all the pictures). She revealed the baby was born on Tuesday October 2, and that her name is Rani Rose.

“We have decided to name our daughter Rani (pronounced Ronnie) after her grandfather, Ron Fujikawa,” the 39-year-old wrote. “Ron was the most special man who we all miss dearly. To name her after him is an honor.”

She continued, “Everyone is doing well and happy as can be. Our family thanks you for all the love and blessings that have been sent our way and we send ours right back.”

This is the first child for Danny, the former singer songwriter and guitarist for the band Chief, and the third for Kate — she also has two sons, 7-year-old Bingham Hawn and 14-year-old son Ryder Russell, from previous relationships.

Kate and Danny, who knew each other for fifteen years since he is Kate’s best friends’ Erin and Sara Foster’s stepbrother, announced in April that she was pregnant with a baby girl. They went public with their relationship in May 2017.

SURPRISE!!! 🤱 If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick! It was the most sick first trimester of all my children. Boomerangs have made me nauseous, Superzoom is an easy way to have my head in the toilet, food instagrams make me queezy and thinking too much about insta stories made me even more exhausted than I already had been. If you’ve seen me out and about smiling and pretending like everything is amazing…I was lying! BUT! I have broken through on the other end of that and rediscovering the joys of insta/snap. We have been trying to keep this pregnancy under the radar for as long as possible but I’m a poppin now! And it’s too darn challenging to hide, and frankly hiding is more exhausting then just coming out with it! My kids, Danny, myself and the entire family are crazy excited! A little girl on the way 💕
