AceShowbiz - Eliza Dushku is officially a mother now. The 38-year-old actress has welcomed her child, a son, with her husband Peter Palandjian. The baby boy is Eliza's first child, while her husband already has four children from a previous marriage.
The "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" alum took to her Instagram account on August 1 to announce the good news and share the first photo of the little bundle of joy. In the image, the baby boy, named Philip Bourne, is introduced a la "The Lion King" as he's being lifted by his father. His face, however, is not seen as his back is facing the camera.
Eliza made a reference to another movie, Matt Damon's "Bourne" film series, which apparently inspired her son's name in the caption. "Our BABY = #Bourne," she cheekily wrote. "Can you feel the love, Philip 'Bourne' !? So [praying hands emoji] for all this love."
Eliza became engaged to businessman and CEO Peter in June 2017. They tied the knot in a secret ceremony in a courtyard outside the Boston Public Library on August 18, 2018 and she only revealed it a month later in September. "8.18.18," she wrote along with their wedding pictures.
In February of this year, the former "Bull" star announced that she's pregnant with their first child together. "We're just very excited. We just got married in August. It's a special year for us," she broke the news to Us Weekly at a special screening of her documentary "Mapplethorpe".
She added, "I'm newly married and I'm just so excited about this next chapter in my life. You know, I've been acting since I was 9 years old and I'm sort of finding these new things that I'm really excited about. It's been a big year but a great year."
Last week, the "Dollhouse" alum shared a picture of her and her husband cradling her bare baby bump. "t-minus just a few more days 'til he's due..," she captioned the snap.
