The Playboy legacy lives on! Cooper Hefner, son of mogul Hugh Hefner, welcomed his first child yesterday with wife Scarlett Byrne.

Hefner and the Harry Potter actress named their newborn daughter Betsy Rose Hefner, announcing the warm news on social media with photos from the hospital. "At 5:23 pm this afternoon Scarlett and I welcomed our daughter Betsy Rose Hefner into the world," Hefner wrote on Instagram. "We are overwhelmed with gratitude, love and joy."

Fans knew the couple's due date was on the horizon when Brynne showed off her 36-week baby bump on July 31, although they only announced their pregnancy in March. "Cooper and I are delighted to share that we have a little one on the way. Our hearts are filled with gratitude and joy, and the two of us can’t wait to meet the newest little Hefner," wrote Brynne when announcing the pregnancy.

In addition to being new parents, the couple is still considered newlyweds, too! Less than a year ago, in November 2019, Hefner and Brynne tied the knot during a civil ceremony in Ventura, California. The marriage marked the end of a four-year engagement and despite having legally wed at the courthouse, the pair is still planning a traditional wedding in the months ahead.

While a formal wedding celebration has yet to occur, we know the couple's new little girl will be a very important guest!
