Tina Fey, already mom to 5½-year-old Alice Zenobia, has introduced a new addition to the family.

The 30 Rock star welcomed a healthy baby girl, Penelope Athena, on Wednesday, Aug. 10 with her composer husband Jeffrey Richmond, 51, her rep tells PEOPLE.

The Bossypants author, 41, first revealed her pregnancy to Oprah Winfrey in April.

Fey spoke about agonizing over having a second kid – but explained how she and her husband decided it was time to expand their family.

“My husband and I really decided that we felt rather than risk having 30 Rock end in several years and feeling like part of our family is missing that we were going to prioritize our family.”

I love it! Penelope Athena is gorgeous!


So WDYT of the new addition's name?

I love Penelope but could do without Athena. Tina Fey is one of the funniest women on the planet.

Neither of the names are on my list of favorites, but they aren't bad by any stretch, and it's refreshingly normal and unique at the same time.

while it's not my style, the names go really nicely together... a very strong greek-mythology type name too

While Penelope is a name I wouldn't use, I like it on others. And, it goes beautifully with Athena (which I love).

It's not my style, but goes SO well with Alice Zenobia. I think she chose well!

I really don't like the name Penelope. I don't like Alice either.

I like Penelope, but not a fan of Athena. However, they sound really great together! I am in love with Alice, I love old, strong names!
