Watson has cracked a case of the mommies: Lucy Liu has welcomed a baby boy via surrogate.

The “Elementary” star introduced her new son, Rockwell, via Twitter and Instagram on Thursday by posting sweet black-and-white snaps showing her cradling the bundled-up baby boy.

“Introducing the new little man in my life, my son Rockwell Lloyd Liu. In [love]!” the 46-year-old wrote, doting on her son with plenty of fans doting on her in turn.

Liu’s rep also confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that Rockwell arrived via surrogate, though she did not elaborate on the “Charlie’s Angels” star’s decision to opt for the method.


“Lucy Liu is the proud mother of Rockwell Lloyd Liu, brought into the world via gestational carrier,” the rep said. “Mom and baby are healthy and happy.”

It’s the first child for the usually private television and film star, who is already mom to a chocolate labrador named Apple. That might explain Rockwell’s dog-printed debut blanket blanket and rocking chair...

Liu has previously been romantically linked to billionaire Noam Gottesman, actor Will McCormack and was previously engaged to playwright Zach Helm.
