KayCee Stroh and Ben Higginson welcomed their first child together in Utah on Wednesday, May 8, just before midnight , Us Weekly can exclusively confirm. The actress and the production company co-owner named their daughter Zetta Lee. The newborn weighed 8 lbs., 9 oz.

Stroh, best known for her role as "pop-and-lock girl" Martha Cox in the High School Musical trilogy, announced her pregnancy in November 2012. "It's been a long time coming. Ben and I have been waiting for the right time, but as anyone in the entertainment business learns, there is no right time," the former Celebrity Fit Club contestant told Us in a statement. "You just have to take that leap."

The star began working on Zetta Lee's nursery early on, using a blush pink and espresso brown color motif. "I wanted it to have an elegant feel but also bring a warm calming effect," Stroh explained. "Something timeless that still had that homeyness to it."
