Broadway star Audra McDonald and Will Swenson have welcomed a baby girl named Sally James. Audra, 46, and Will, 43, took to their Twitter pages on Thursday morning to announce the joyous news, sharing a photo of their newborn’s tiny feet.

 ‘[We] are overjoyed to welcome Sally James McDonald-Swenson, born last night at 11:16pm. Our hearts are bursting,’ they wrote of their daughter’s October 19th birth.

This is the first child for the couple, who married in 2012, but the six-time Tony winner is also a mom to a 15-year-old daughter Zoe Madeline.

Will, whose credits include Hair, Pricilla Queen of the Desert, Disaster! and Les Miserables on Broaday, also has two sons, Sawyer, 12, and Bridger, 15, from previous relationships.
