The former "Two and a Half Men" star gave birth quietly at the end of last year (2018) but the couple kept the baby news under wraps until a pal, director Neema Barnette, congratulated Jason publicly on Instagram in December.
"Congrats to 'Raising Dion' Co Star Jason Ritter & his wife on the birth of their beautiful Sag baby girl. Babies are a blessing & so is Jason!".
