Bones actress Emily Deschanel is a mama! The actress and her husband, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star David Hornsby, welcomed baby Henry on Wednesday.

Mom and baby are doing well, thanks to Deschanel’s healthy lifestyle.

The dedicated vegan maintained her animal-free diet throughout her pregnancy with the help of dietician Ashley Koff. According to Koff, Deschanel followed a minimally-processed diet high in hemp and nut butter smoothies during her pregnancy, which helped meet her protein needs and keep up her energy for long days on set.

Deschanel also paid attention to her fitness while pregnant, and recently appeared on the cover of Fit Pregnancy. She told the magazine, “I’m still Spinning and doing yoga—right now it’s a prenatal yoga DVD I do at home — but I really love classes. I like the music and the motivation you get from the people in class with you. And I’m walking a lot these days.”

She also explained that she’s a “total hippie” and plans to co-sleep and breastfeed for at least a year.

It looks like Deschanel will have lots of help caring for baby Henry; in addition to a nanny, she has quite the support network of friends and family. In April, sister Zooey Deschanel told the twitterverse that she was “super excited to be an aunt!” And Bones co-star TJ Thyne also expressed his excitement via Tweet on Wednesday, writing, “CONGRATULATIONS EMILY D!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay yay yay!!!”

The new season of Bones premieres in November; hopefully we won’t have to wait long to meet Brennan and Booth’s baby as well!

    Congratulations Emily and David!

    Emily Deschanel sure made good choices during her pregnancy.

    Hart Hanson and David Boreanaz were the first ones to express their excitments on Twitter (about 2 hours before TJ Thyne), it was just not as obvious, maybe to respect Emily and David’s privacy: “This counts as a pretty happy day” and “Happy Dance! Happy Dance!”

    Emily Deschanel, Alyssa Milano, and Alicia Silverstone: my three favorite celebrities and role models all vegan or vegetarian and all giving birth to baby boys within only months of each other. Congrats to them all.
