This is Ricci’s second child, but her first with husband Mark Hampton.

Her husband confirmed Ricci gave birth to a baby girl.

The actress gave birth on Wednesday, December 8th.

He announced their baby’s arrival by posting a photo of their beautiful daughter on Instagram.

The pair decided to call their daughter Cleopatra and will call her Cleo for short.

The name Cleopatra is of Greek origin and means ‘Glory Of The Father’.

The proud dad added, “So in love with you cleopatra Ricci hampton. @riccigrams making the most beautiful babies.”

The Casper star also posted a sweet video of her baby girl.

“Baby Cleo is here. We are so in love with her.  Also she has the most incredible dad imaginable.”

Ricci is also a mum to 7-year-old son Freddie, whom she shares with her ex James Heerdegen.

The Addams Family star filed for divorce after almost 7 years of marriage in July 2020. She revealed that she was subjected to “severe physical and emotional abuse” by Heerdegen.

The mum said many of the acts of abuse took place in front of their son Freddie.

Ricci was granted a domestic violence restraining order against Heerdegen and has been granted full custody of their son. Heerdegen has visitation rights.

Following their separation, Ricci started dating hairstylist Mark Hampton. They announced they were expecting a child together in August and got married in October 2021.
