Their baby girl, Maiya Grace Baldoni, was born on Saturday, June 27. Little Maiya weighed in at 8 pounds and was 21 inches.
“The birth of our little Maiya was the most beautiful and spiritual experience we have ever had,” the couple tells Us exclusively. “Having her at home in our bed and being able to sing and pray as she entered this world while holding her in the quiet of our home is something we will cherish forever. Our hearts are exploding with love… ‘In the world of existence there is no more powerful magnet than the magnet of love. – ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.'”
Prior to becoming parents, Baldoni, 31, who plays Jane the Virgin’s biological baby daddy in the hit CW series which returns in October, took his ladylove on a babymoon this past April.
“We went to Haifa, Israel, to see the beautiful Bahai Gardens. We went to Rome. We went to Milan. It was amazing,” he gushed to Us at the 36th College Television Awards. “I’m a Baha’i, and so is Emily, and we wanted to be pregnant in the Holy Land there and just absorb the beautiful energy and the prayers and get a chance to experience that,” he added of their trip.
The actor’s 2013 proposal to Emily went equally as viral as their sweet baby announcement. Popping the question at Blu Jam Cafe in Sherman Oaks, Calif., where they had their first date, the 27-minute short film has now been viewed by almost 11 million people.
“He’s the master of surprises,” Emily, 30, later told Entertainment Tonight.
