Jordi Vilasuso and his wife Kaitlin rang in the New Year by welcoming their third child together -- a baby girl -- a little ahead of schedule.

Daytime Emmy winner Jordi Vilasuso (ex-Rey Rosalas; The Young and the Restless; ex-Griffin Castilo, All My Children) and his wife, Kaitlin, kicked off the New Year with an unexpected surprise when they welcomed a baby girl they named Lucy Noelle a few weeks ahead of schedule. Lucy joins big sisters Riley Grace, 11, and Everly Maeve, 7.

The good news was especially welcome, given the couple's difficult journey to get there. Kaitlin had suffered two previous heartbreaking miscarriages, and she had to undergo surgery in September to sew her cervix closed to prevent premature labor when it was discovered that her body was struggling to hold the unborn baby. Luckily, everything worked out, and on December 30, the actor took to Instagram to share the news that their daughter would be making an early appearance. "It looks like we are in for one more surprise before we ring in the new year! Baby girl is a bit early (35 weeks) but we are so blessed that we were able to make it this far. What a miracle! Thank you for each prayer that has been sent up for our family and we ask for one more as this little lady comes into the world!" In the photo, Vilasuso and his wife were in the hospital and smiling as they prepared for the birth of their baby girl.

A week later, on January 6, Kaitlin shared a delightful update that included several photos of the happy family showering Lucy with love. The caption read, "Thank you, beautiful friends and family, for the part you have played in this chapter. I wish I could say that it was a purely faith filled journey from our first loss until today, but the God's honest truth is that knowing you were holding our family in your prayers was often what got us through. I know I've said it before, but we are truly forever grateful." Katlin also shared an uplifting message to anyone who might be struggling as she had. "And to anyone who sees these pictures and feels an ounce of hurt for your own hearts dream- please know that I will never not think about you as I post." She concluded her post with a message of hope writing, "But this little girl in my arms is proof that God's promises are greater than our fears, no matter how big those fears are. I see you, I have been you, I am praying for you. Hold onto your hope. 🙏🏻"

Friends and co-stars were quick to congratulate the happy parents, including Greg Vaughn, who posted, "Congrats on the newest family addition 🙌🔥👏"

Vilasuso began his career in daytime in 2000 on Guiding Light, playing Tony Santos. The actor left the show in 2003, shortly after earning the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor. Vilasuso has also appeared as Griffin Castillo on All My Children, Dario Hernandez on Days of our Lives, and, most recently, Rey Rosales on The Young and the Restless.
