The star of The Kitchen and her fiancé Philip Button welcomed their second child together, a baby girl named Anna Carina Button-Valladolid, on Dec. 5 in California. Anna joins the couple's son David, 20 months and Valladolid's son from a previous relationship, Fausto, 12 years old.

Valladolid shared a sweet black and white snap of the newborn on her Instagram page.

"Grateful to God and my family for our perfect baby girl that came to complete our family just in time for Christmas," said Valladolid. "Anna is strong and a fighter, and her older brothers, dad and mom are absolutely in love with her."

Anna is a classic, simple baby girl name that is unlikely to ever go out of fashion. The Anglo-Saxon version of the Hebrew Hannah, it has a lovely meaning ("grace") and ranked at No. 44 in the U.S. baby name chart in 2015. It's even more popular in other countries: No. 1 in Austria, No. 2 in Hungary, No. 8 in the Netherlands and No. 5 in Norway.

Some of the most famous modern bearers of the name are actresses Anna Kendrick, Anna Faris and Anna Paquin, and English editor-in-chief of American Vogue magazine, Anna Wintour. In literature, Anna Karenina is the eponymous character of Leo Tolstoy's novel. And Frozen fans will be familiar with the younger Disney princess, voiced by Kristen Bell in the animated film. Anna is also a favorite with musicians, with The Beatles' "Anna (Go to Him)," Taken by Trees' "Anna," Counting Crows' "Anna Begins," Incubus' "Anna Molly" and Walk the Moon's "Anna Sun" featuring the name in the song titles.
