Rebel Wilson has welcomed her first child!

The Pitch Perfect actress announced the birth of baby Royce Lillian via surrogate, and I'm thrilled about her happy news.

The Daily Mail reports that "Royce" can mean "fame," "son of the king," or "royal." Lillian seems to be a reference to Wilson's great-aunt Lillian Disney (née Bounds), who was married to Walt Disney.

Wilson took to social media to share a photo of little "Roycie" in an adorable baby pink onesie and unicorn slippers (do they make these in grown-up sizes though?), as well as let her fans know how delighted she is.

"Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born this past week via surrogate," the actress wrote.

"I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!

"I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved, (you know who you are), this has been years in the making…but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care. Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!

"I am ready to give little Roycie all the love imaginable. I am learning quickly…much respect to all the Mums out there! Proud to be in your club."

Wilson's famous friends rallied to congratulate her. Paris Hilton wrote, "So happy for you love! Congratulations!!" Octavia Spencer said, "Congratulations!!!!!" Taika Waititi chimed in with, "yes Rebz, congrats xx"

The best comment by far, though, came courtesy of the new mom's Pitch Perfect co-star Brittany Snow, who wrote, "Aunt Britt is soooo excited to meet the newest Bella. I love you SO much Rebs" :) :) :)

Wilson shared photos from her gorgeous baby shower on her Instagram Stories. To celebrate her baby girl with her friends, the star rewore a beautiful pink Valentino dress which she wore back in May, per the Daily Mail.

The poolside party was hosted by Wilson's girlfriend Ramona Agruma, and featured a delectable selection of baked goods, pink candy, and all the new mom's glam entourage.

Her friends took to Instagram en masse to share snaps from the day, with Carly Steel sharing a particularly adorable selection with the caption, "Congrats @rebelwilson on beautiful Baby Royce! Loved showering you both"
