Jenny Slate has welcomed her first child with fiancé Ben Shattuck, the actress confirmed on Wednesday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
The "Gifted" star confirmed that her baby girl, named Ida, was born six weeks ago.
When asked how they came up with the baby's name, Slate told Kimmel she and Shattuck did some digging into her heritage and she found a connection to a region of eastern Europe, so they looked at names from that area.
"And we didn't go with this, but one name we were both obsessed with was spelled B-A-G-R-A-T," she continued. "And while I was pregnant, we just kept calling her Bagrat, which I'm sure is not how to pronounce that."
Slate joked that the name must be "something more beautiful" than the way she and Shattuck were saying it.
The 38-year-old actress went on to explain that the COVID-19 pandemic was a "major time" to have a baby.
"We weren't sure how it was going to go," said Slate, confirming that Shattuck was allowed in the delivery room.
"You know, we had our masks on and everything," she continued, adding adding that she was glad Shattuck couldn't see some of the faces she was making.
At the end of the day, the "Obvious Child" star said motherhood has had a huge impact on her.
"I can say, without a doubt, that motherhood is for sure the most meaningful thing that has ever happened to me," Slate said. "I feel really lucky and happy."
Slate voices the character of 16-year-old Judy Tobin on the Fox animated series "The Great North," which premieres Feb. 14.
