Baby girl Keegan! Andrew Keegan and his longtime girlfriend, Arista Ilona, are expecting a baby girl, a rep for the former 7th Heaven actor confirmed to Us Weekly on Thursday, Nov. 12.

One day earlier, Keegan, 36, and model Ilona held a “sacred intention ceremony” where they revealed the gender of their first child together to close family and friends.

"No marriage but there was an intention ceremony held last night at Full Circle for the baby," the rep told Us. "Family and close friends of Andrew and Arista gathered to celebrate this new chapter in their lives. Yes, there was cake for the gender reveal and it was indeed pink for a girl!"

“My beloved partner and I are excited to welcome a baby into our lives and our community,” the Party of Five alum and Full Circle Venice founder told Us in a statement. “We look forward to embracing the sacred responsibility of parenthood as well as learning from this spirit. Our intention is to raise our child in a co-creative environment where truth and love are foremost. We welcome your thoughts and prayers for this incubating life.”

Keegan co-founded the spiritual center in Los Angeles in August 2014, and in a separate statement, Full Circle Venice told Us that the center “is delighted to be expanding! We are excited to share in this experience with Andrew Keegan and his partner and look forward to co-creating a beautiful life for this new being.”

In an interview with Vice magazine last year, Keegan explained that his mission in starting the center was to “promote the individual becoming truly themselves outside of defined boundaries.”
