Linda Cardellini Welcomes Baby Girl

Former “ER” star Linda Cardellini is the proud new mom of a baby girl!

The actress and boyfriend Steve Rodriguez welcomed their first child, daughter Lilah-Rose, on February 29 (Leap Day), according to People.

The 36-year-old, who previously appeared on “Freaks and Geeks” and in the “Scooby-Doo” films, announced her pregnancy in October and told Access Hollywood she struggled with severe morning sickness.

“Morning sickness was terrible the first four months,” the actress told Access back in December at the March of Dimes’ 6th Annual Celebration of Babies luncheon in Los Angeles. “It was awful. I was kind of a monster!”

Fortunately, the morning sickness passed, allowing Linda to relax and experience the wonder of becoming a mom.

“Now I feel great, and it’s amazing and I can feel kicking and it’s a totally unbelievable experience,” she told Access at the time. “It’s a little bit like ‘Alien’ in science fiction and then also it’s a crazy miracle.”
