‘Grey’s Anatomy’ favorite Jessica Capshaw has welcomed her and husband Christopher Gavigan’s second child, a daughter named Eve Augusta.

People.com reports the birth date as October 20, meaning that Capshaw somehow didn’t say a peep about it not 24 hours later, during a press conference call to promote her upcoming Lifetime movie, ‘One Angry Juror.’ Neat trick!

The foundation was laid for Capshaw’s ‘Grey’s’ absence this past Thursday, when Dr. Arizona Robbins left for Africa to work on a pedes grant. The actress is expected to miss at least two episodes entirely, and likely be played light for a few beyond that.

When Fancast spoke with Capshaw this summer, she said her maternity leave game plan was to “take some time with my new baby, and then get back to work.”

Capshaw and Gavigan already have 3-year-old son named Luke.
