Party of three! Claire Holt and her husband, Andrew Joblon, have welcomed their first child together. 

“James Holt Joblon. Everything they say is true. There is no love like it,” the new mom captioned a Friday, March 29, Instagram post.

The Originals star, 30, announced in October 2018 that the couple would be expecting a baby seven months after Holt suffered a miscarriage. “My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude,” she wrote in a heartfelt Instagram post at the time. “You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today.”

She added: “I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world. I know that these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support — I can’t wait to share this journey with you.”

The Vampire Diaries alum also gushed over her baby joy exclusively to Us Weekly. “Coming from such a big family, nothing makes me more excited than the thought of being a mother,” she told Us at the time. “I’m so grateful.”

Holt and Joblon, 35, exchanged vows in August 2018. She was previously married to TV producer Matthew Kaplan from April 2016 to May 2017.
