Jodie Sweetin gave birth to a baby girl on Tuesday 31st August 2010, and has named the new arrival 'Beatrix Carlin Sweetin Coyle'. It is the actress' first child with boyfriend MORTY COYLE, who told People Magazine, "We are now the proud, excited parents of Miss Beatrix Carlin Sweetin Coyle".
The 28-year-old actress is perhaps best known for her role as 'Stephanie Tanner' in the long-running US sitcom, 'Full House', however, she has appeared in a number of independent films in recent years. She became the subject of much media attention in 2007 when her memoirs - entitled 'unSweetined'- revealed a series of problems with drugs and alcohol abuse.
In a joint statement, reported by E! Online, Sweetin and Coyle said, "We're already madly in love with Beatrix and are so grateful for the support from our family and friends. And we can't wait for her big sister Zoie to meet her". Sweetin already has a 2-year-old daughter from her marriage to CODY HERPIN, which ended in divorce in April 2010.
