Evangeline gave birth to their second daughter at a hospital in Florida on Tuesday, July 31.

According to TMZ, The Nickelodeon alum and Saturday Night Live veteran Thompson, 40, and model Evangeline, 29, named their new bundle of joy Gianna Michelle. She came in at a healthy 6 pounds, 6 ounces.

The couple — who wed in November 2011 — are already parents to 4-year-old Georgia Marie, and the two are already inseparable and obsessed with each other.

The very private parents didn't create much fanfare during their pregnancy journey, however Evangline couldn't help but share her excitement with an Instagram pic just four before she gave birth, posting a boomerang video of herself on Instagram in anticipation of the new addition.

“I’m usually private when it comes to these personal things,” she captioned the video. “But we have less than 5 days until this little girl is due and I am just TEW excited,” the expectant mom shared in the caption of the selfie on Friday, July 27.

Thompson, who’s in his 15th season of SNL, recently surpassed Darrell Hammond’s record, becoming the longest-running cast member on the sketch comedy show. “There’s no reason for me to run out the door. I feel very lucky,” he said earlier this year.

This is a big year for the beloved SNL cast member. Apart from the exciting new addition to his family, Thompson was also nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on the long-running NBC sketch comedy series -- his first nomination in a performance category. Kenan, who rose to fame on Nickelodeon in the '90s, starring in the network's hit sketch show All That, followed by his own sitcom, Kenan & Kel, and the Nickelodeon Movie Good Burger, alongside his long-time comedy partner Kel Mitchell in all three projects. Kenan has also created and will be starring in a brand-new sketch show called Skoogle, which will air on Nickelodeon.

Congrats to the happy family! :)
