Ballinger announced the news in a tweet to her 1.68 million Twitter followers, writing, "he's perfect" with a heart-eyes emoji.

The Haters Back Off co-creator had posted a photo from the hospital several hours earlier after she went into labor.

"here we go!" she wrote.

Ballinger met Stocklin in 2016 when she cast him to play Patrick Mooney, Miranda's friend and love interest, in Haters Back Off. She announced her engagement and pregnancy in June.

"We're so, so excited," the star told People at the time. "We're so in love and can't wait to meet this kid."

"It's just all happening at once; a lot of exciting things coming quickly, which is awesome. I'm the luckiest girl in the world," she said.
