'Punky Brewster' Star Gives Birth to Baby Girl


Former child star Soleil Moon Frye is a mother again.

The ex-"Punky Brewster" star and her producer husband Jason Goldberg welcomed their second daughter in Los Angeles on Monday, March 17, reports People.

"Soleil had a wonderful experience, and both she and the baby are doing great," says the actress' rep.

Jagger Joseph Blue Goldberg weighted 8 lbs., 6 oz. at birth. The couple also has a 2-year-old daughter, Poet Sienna Rose Goldberg.

Frye, 31, and Goldberg, 36, met in 1996 in New York and married two years later. He acted as producer on 1998's "Wild Horses," Frye's writing and directing debut.

Goldberg is best known as the frequent Ashton Kutcher producing partner on reality shows "Punk'd" and "Beauty and the Geek," and big-screen projects "The Butterfly Effect" and "Guess Who."

At age 8, Frye shot to fame as the spunky, kaleidoscopicically clad Penelope "Punky" Brewster. The NBC sitcom ran from 1984 to 1988. An animated version of the show also ran for four years in the late '80s. After a forgettable film career through the '90s, she returned to the world of sitcoms as a regular on ABC's "Sabrina the Teenage Witch."

Nowadays, when she's not birthing small Frye, she's providing voiceovers for the Disney Channel's "The Proud Family" and its upcoming film adaptation, as well as for the upcoming cartoon "Bratz," based on the line of fashion dolls with large heads and eyes and ultra-hip clothes.

She is also opened a specialty children's boutique, The Little Seed, last October in Los Angeles.
