General Hospital star Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber) and her husband, former GH star Michael Saucedo, are the proud parents of bouncing baby boy.

Ethan Saucedo arrived at 1:22am this morning weighing in at 7lbs. 5oz. The baby was 20 inches long.

"All family members are doing well and want to thank everyone for their prayers," read a statement on Herbst's official web site.

Herbst was in labor for quite some time -- over 15 hours.

"Becky's water broke at 8:30 AM PST, October 30, 2001," said a note on Herbst's web site.

In late August, Internet rumors claimed that Herbst's baby suffered from an undisclosed medical ailment.

"Becky and the baby are doing fine and everyone is looking forward to the new addition to the Herbst/Saucedo family," argued a message on Herbst's web site, citing news from Herbst's aunt.

Former co-stars Herbst and Michael Saucedo (ex-Juan Santiago) were wed on June 1, just a matter of days after the news of Herbst's pregnancy leaked to the media. This is their first child.

Herbst has already taken maternity leave from GH. Her on-screen departure date is November 7. There is no immediate word on when the actress will return to work.
