(PEOPLE.com) -- After playing pregnant in this summer's "Away We Go," Maya Rudolph has welcomed a real-life bundle of joy: her second child with director Paul Thomas Anderson.
The couple's daughter, Lucille, was born November 6 in Los Angeles, the "Saturday Night Live" alum's rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
"Because when you're ready to throw in the towel and you've got nothing positive to think about or feel, because you're so heavy and you want to float in a pool of salt water to be buoyant, it was nice to have something to look forward to."
The couple announced the pregnancy in May.
