Minnie Driver is a mom!

On Friday, Sept. 5, the Oscar-nominated actress gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Henry Story Driver.

Henry is the first child for Minnie, who has remained mum on the father's identity. The 38-year-old confirmed her pregnancy on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in March and would only tease that the father is "sort of in the same business."

"I want to shield the baby's dad as much as I can because it wasn't his choice to get roped into all this stuff," she has said.

Minnie, who currently stars on FX's The Riches, was much more open about her pregnancy, telling OK! about her renewed love of clothes shopping and announcing plans to keep the baby's gender a surprise -- which meant neutral nurseries.

"I have two houses, so I've readied two rooms," she told the New York Post. "Not pink or blue, because I don't know if it's a boy or girl, so I've just made them neutral and peaceful. Being traditional, if it's a boy I'll name him Thomas. A girl, Isabel . . . I just want to stay healthy."
