Shiri Appleby Baby Girl: 'Girls' Star Gives Birth To A Daughter

Mazel tov goes out to Shiri Appleby and her fiance, restaurateur Jon Shook, for welcoming their baby girl, born March 23 in Los Angeles.

The "Girls" and "Roswell" star previously told Us Weekly she did not want to know the sex of the baby, so welcoming the little lady was very much a surprise. "She's heaven," Appleby told the magazine. "I'm beyond thrilled."

As far as decorating a gender-neutral nursery, Appleby said "We got a chandelier, we got a rug and were looking for drapes. We don’t want it to look too much like a baby's room."

Just days before giving birth, a nude frontal selfie of Appleby circulated the web (Gawker posted it in full, NSFW). The actress hasn't addressed the issue, which some think is a publicity stunt to draw attention to her character on "Girls," Natalia, who was seen topless a couple times. The star does not seem to be pregnant in the photo, so it must have been taken a little while back.
