Florence May King is her name and she was born on Jan. 15, according to some informative pink embroidery on the blanket under the baby's feet. The tot's name is an homage to the couple's engagement site, according to Us Weekly. King popped the question in May 2013 while they were vacationing in Florence, Italy.

Accola, 38, and King, 35, announced that they were expecting back in August with a sweet snapshot of her doodled-on baby bump and King's matching outfit.

"Sometimes a Saturday is best spent painting t-shirts and taking an awesome family photo. Happy Monday everybody! #ThatAintNoBurritoinMyBelly," Accola wrote, captioning a family portrait of herself with King and his two daughters, Ava and Elise, from his first marriage.

The CW star met King through former costar Nina Dobrev, who introduced them at DirecTV's 2012 Celebrity Beach Bowl. After getting engaged in Italy, they wed in New Orleans in October 2014 during a French Quarter-themed celebration.

No word yet on whether Florence's birth will affect production on "The Vampire Diaries."
