Baby boy George is here! Actress Melissa George has welcomed her first child.

“The Good Wife” star, whose character is also pregnant on the CBS legal drama, and boyfriend Jean-David Blanc welcomed their baby boy last Thursday and announced the tiny tot’s arrival on Twitter.

The 37-year-old, who has also appeared on “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Alias,” named the little guy Raphael Blanc. (Sorry, Boy George fans.)

“WELCOME TO THE WORLD! OUR BEAUTIFUL SON Raphaël Blanc just born at the American hospital of Paris,” the Aussie actress tweeted Monday, adding, “THERE ARE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE LOVE.”

George and Blanc, a French businessman, met at a BAFTA Awards after-party in 2012 and have been dating ever since, E! News reported.

They made their pregnancy announcement on Twitter last August, simply writing “Baby on the way! So so happy.” Since then, she’s rocked her ultra-chic baby bump on several red carpets, including the CNN Heroes event in November and the Toronto film festival back in September for the premiere of her thriller “Felony.”
