Linda Cardellini of "Freaks and Geeks" and "ER" fame welcomed her first child, a baby girl, with boyfriend Steve Rodriguez on Wednesday, February 29, aka Leap Day.

The 36-year-old actress and her boyfriend named their daughter Lilah-Rose, her spokesperson confirmed to OnTheRedCarpet.com, following a report by People magazine on Tuesday.

Cardellini showed off her baby bump in a recent photo "Robot Chicken" and "Austin Powers" star Seth Green posted on Twitter a week before she gave birth. Her pregnancy was first reported in October.

Cardellini rose to fame playing rebellious teenager Lindsay Weir on the short-lived teen comedy series "Freaks and Geeks," which aired for one season in 1999 and also starred James Franco, Jason Segel, Seth Rogen and Busy Phillips.

In 2011, Cardellini reunited with several of her former cast members at a Los Angeles event honoring the show, which has become a cult favorite (see video).

Cardellini also played Lauren on the teen series "Boy Meets World" in 1998, Velma in the "Scooby-Doo" movies and Nurse Samantha Taggart on the medical drama series "ER" between 2003 and 2009. Last year, she appeared on an episode of the new CBS drama series "Person of Interest" and co-starred with Michael Shannon in the movie "Return."
