Acclaimed actress Chloë Sevigny, 45, has announced the arrival of her first child with her boyfriend Sinisa Mačković.

Chloë shared a sweet family photo of herself with Sinisa and their newborn son to announce his birth. She shared that she and her boyfriend have chosen to name him Vanja Sevigny Mačković. Vanja is a Slavic name – a diminutive of Ivan – that means “God is gracious.” The couple also chose to use both of their surnames.

Vanja was born on May 2nd in New York City at Mt. Sinai East. She thanked the staff for their hard work during her birthing experience. “Thank you to all the staff at Mt. Sinai East for your bravery, perseverance, and kindness, especially the nurses for being so gentle and patient.”

Back in January, Chloë announced she was expecting in an Instagram post that featured black and white photos of the actress with a bare belly that was just showing signs of a baby bump. She added rows of baby-related emojis to her caption and geo-tagged her photos as “Baby on Board.”
