Get ready for the pitter-patter of Baby Peet's feet! Amanda Peet gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday, Dec. 6 in Los Angeles, Us Weekly exclusively confirms. It is the actress' third child with husband David Benioff Freedman. His name is Henry Peet Friedman, Peet's rep tells Us. 

The couple already shares daughters Frances, 7, and Molly, 4. Peet surprised fans when she walked the red carpet at the Emmys in late August, debuting her already large baby bump after keeping her pregnancy under wraps for months. 

In October she spoke to Us Weekly about her third pregnancy at the UN Foundation and Walgreens Shot@Life campaign, saying, "It's great. I can't complain. I mean, I'm tired but otherwise, I'm doing really well." 

Peet also opened up about choosing daughter Molly's name. 

"David hid behind his back two crumpled up pieces of paper. We couldn't leave the hospital because we couldn't decide what her name should be," she dished. "The car was downstairs and yeah, it was cutthroat. There were two, he wrote them down on a piece of paper, and then hid them behind his back. And that's how she became Molly June."
