It's a girl for Rachael Leigh Cook and Daniel Gillies!

After several news outlets falsely reported that the duo had welcomed their baby girl last week, the "Vampire Diaries" hunk, 37, corrected the reports on Sunday with a tweet announcing his baby's arrival.

"It's a girl. the tiny new empress of my everything. she's immaculate. we're delirious," he wrote.

Charlotte Easton Gillies arrived Saturday morning at 9:02 a.m., weighing in at 6 pounds, 15 ounces, according to People. This is the first child for the pair, who have been married for nine years.

The 33-year-old actress, who is currently starring on the hit TNT show "Perception," announced her pregnancy back in May.

"I've been hiding my rapidly growing bump while shooting but this kiddo is vying for screen time," Cook joked to Us Weekly at the time. "We clearly have a future actor on our hands."

Gillies, who stars on the CW's "The Originals," which premiers on Thursday, chimed in, "A lot of people are asking whether I'd prefer a boy or a girl. In truth, it doesn't matter to me — I just can't wait to meet little Keanu Robocop.”

Whether their child ends up joining the family business or not, we're pretty sure "she's all that" and then some!
