Bellamy wrote: โ€œLovella Dawn Bellamy, born Los Angeles June 7th 2020 with exactly the same quarantine haircut as her Dad! Mom @elloelle did an amazing job!โ€

Evans shared a video of the child clutching her finger, writing: โ€œLovella Dawn Bellamy. Born Sunday the 7th of June. Weighing 9 pounds & measuring 23 inches.โ€
