'Six Feet Under' Actress Gives Birth


Lauren Ambrose, who starred in HBO's mortuary drama "Six Feet Under," is celebrating a new life.

The Emmy-nominated actress and her husband Sam Handel welcomed their first child on Tuesday, Jan. 16 in New York City, reports People.

The baby, a boy, has been named Orson Handel.

Ambrose, 28, married Handel, a photographer and entrepreneur whom she met at a party in Los Angeles, in 2001.

Ambrose is probably best known as the overlooked sister on HBO's now defunct "Six Feet Under." Before that, she made a few appearances on "Law & Order" and had a recurring guest role on "Party of Five."

Her film credits include "In & Out," "Psycho Beach Party," "Swimming" and "Can't Hardly Wait." Her latest film, "Starting Out in the Evening," premieres at the Sundance Film Festival.
