Big news for Showtime actress Shanola Hampton. The Shameless star, 36, just gave birth to a baby girl, and she’s already taken to Twitter to gush about how much she loves being a mom.

I thought I knew love before, but now I know love on a completely different level! Can't believe my baby is here! #overwhelmed #blessed,” Shanola tweeted on January 20.

The actress, who plays Fiona’s (Emmy Rossum) best friend, Veronica, on Shameless welcomed her first child with husband Daren Dukes. The little girl weighed 6 pounds, 3 ounces and measured 20 inches long. Her name is Cai MyAnna — how cool is that?

Baby Cai’s parents live in Los Angeles and have been married for 13 years. He’s a writer, an actor, and also the creator/producer of The Dallas Cowboy Show.

Shanola kept things super-glam up to the very last moment of her pregnancy. Just six days ago, she posted an Instagram photo showing off her 6-inch heels.  “Who says you can't wear thigh high 6" boots 9 months pregnant! Keep it glam! #pregnantinheels #glabor” she wrote.

Does this mean Cai is destined to be a pro at strutting around in heels? We wouldn’t be surprised one bit. #fabulous
