It's a girl for David Schwimmer and his wife Zoe Buckman. The couple welcomed daughter Cleo Buckman Schwimmer on Sunday, May 8, in New York, People reports.

Buckman and Schwimmer began dating in 2007 and married last June.

Speaking to People in 2006, the former "Friends" star, 44, talked about one day becoming a dad. "It will happen when it feels right," he said. "Maybe part of me is waiting for myself to slow down a little and be ready to stay put. I'm confident it's gonna happen."
