Life imitates art: Laurel Castillo has given birth to her first child… but in real life!

How to Get Away with Murder's Karla Souza and her banker husband Marshall Trenkmann celebrated the arrival of their firstborn together, a baby girl named Gianna, as announced in a remarkable Instagram shared by the star herself.

"God blessed us," the Mexican actress captioned an image of her relaxing bedside and beaming, her bundle of joy cradled at her side.

"So I have something to share with you guys," Souza wrote in another revealing image, the first of which that shows the performer sporting her baby bump.

The news of Souza's pregnancy and delivery, which appeared Thursday (April 19), may have come as a shock to the 32-year-old performer's following as well, as Souza had not publicly revealed she was expecting a child nor gave an indication to the fact in previous social posts.

Even so, the beautiful event may just tug at the heartstrings of fans of the star's HTGAWM persona, Laurel, who, too, gives birth to her first child with the departed Wes Gibbins during the show's fourth season… though in far less idealistic conditions.

“We welcome our healthy baby girl Gianna, and we couldn’t feel more blessed in this moment,” the We Are the Nobles star revealed in an Instagram Story. "The last nine months have been nothing short of a miracle."

Souza and Trenkmann engaged in December 2013 and married one year later in May 2014.
