Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard Welcome Daughter Gloria Ray!

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard became the proud parents of their second baby girl, a rep forGyllenhaal confirms to Us Weeklyexclusively.

Born April 19 in New York, the parents named their newborn Gloria Ray.

The Hysteria actress, 34, and theLovelace actor, 41, are already parents to daughter Ramona, 5. Together since 2002, the couple tied the knot at a small chapel in Brindisi, Italy on May 2, 2009.

Since first becoming a mother in 2006, Gyllenhaal has struggled to balance her personal and professional life. "I had been so focused on Ramona -- and she's been everything to me -- but I'm also an actress," she told Us in January 2010. "It's not possible to do it perfectly."

Gyllenhaal waited until her second trimester to announce her most recent pregnancy.

"I find it difficult to pretend you're not pregnant, which I had to do," the Crazy Heart star told USA Today in March. "I didn't let anyone know until three and a half months this time. I went to film festivals. I'm throwing up in the bathroom and having to keep pretzels in my purse, and having to fit into dresses."

Sarsgaard, meanwhile, had another set of concerns -- the biggest being how to prepare Ramona for sisterhood. "I've seen kids with siblings -- I don't have any siblings, so I don't know -- but they generally go for about five minutes, 'Oh, cool! Anyway, what are we going to do now? Can we return it?'" he told reporters in February. "I think it gets boring quickly, at first, and it takes a while for them to bond."

I'd rather be named Gloria or Ramona than Tallulah or Rumer or half the weird names out there ;)
