Matt LeBlanc's wife gives birth -- The ''Friends'' star has a healthy baby girl named Marina

Matt LeBlanc's new show hasn't arrived yet, but his new baby has. The ''Friends'' star's wife, Melissa, gave birth to their first child together, Marina LeBlanc, People.com reports. Born last Sunday, the baby girl weighed 7 pounds, 1 ounce. Her parents married in May after a five-year engagement, and Melissa has two children, Tyler, 13, and Jacquelyn, 9, from a previous relationship.

After wrapping up ''Friends,'' LeBlanc, 36, will star in the spin-off ''Joey'' in the fall, which will find the none-too-bright title character furthering his acting career in Los Angeles. Among the other, as-yet-uncast. series regulars will be Joey's hairdresser sister Gina, his nephew Michael (described as an Adam Brody type), and his attractive neighbor Allison, according to casting information obtained by Filmjerk.com. What, no part for a baby?
