Amanda Peet

Amanda Peet has given birth to her second daughter.

Mother and daughter are doing great.

The '2012' actress - who already has three-year-old Frances with her screenwriter husband David Benioff - celebrated the early arrival of daughter Molly June on Monday night (19.04.10).

Her representative said: "Mother and daughter are doing great."

The 38-year-old star had to cancel a scheduled appearance on David Letterman's TV talk show where she was due to promote her upcoming film, 'Please Give', because she started experiencing labour pains.

Amanda - who married David three years ago - recently spoke of her excitement at the family's newest addition but admitted the couple were unable to agree on a name.

She said: "There's been a lot of fighting going on in my household over names. Frances is very excited. She just wants to call the baby Turtle."

The star also previously admitted motherhood had not been quite what she'd expected.

She said: "One surprise of motherhood for me was how little control I have. I thought it would be an extended, blissful romance with me at the helm, cuddling this little creature to life. It's been bittersweet and humbling to let her lead, and to try not to be perfect myself."

Shortly after Frances' birth, Amanda also revealed that David wanted two more children but she was happy to stick with just one more.

She said: "He wants three but I'm old, I'm an old lady. Two is enough."
