We were so excited to hear that one of our favorite eco-actresses, Marion Cotillard, gave birth to a healthy baby boy last night!

The French actress and Inception star welcomed her first child with actor-director beau, Guillaume Canet. She gave birth in Paris on Thursday, and the couple has decided to name their son Marcel.

A source told People magazine that, “Mother and baby are fine,” and added that Cotillard is “very happy.”

We told you that the 35-year-old was recently pegged to play “Miranda Tate” in Christopher Nolan‘s latest Batman installment, The Dark Knight Rises, and she’ll be starring opposite her Inception co-stars, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy. Filming is set to begin for Cottilard in mid-June, with a release date set for July 2012.

Cotillard has been a large proponent of connecting with nature and respecting the environment, so we’re looking forward to the little greenie that Marcel will likely be raised to be!
