Constance Wu is a mom!

The Hustlers actress, 38, welcomed her first child, a baby girl, this year, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Wu, who generally keeps her personal life private, had not previously announced that she was expecting a new addition. Her Instagram and Twitter profiles are designated as "defunct" in their respective bios.

E! News was first to report the birth, adding that Wu had a daughter with boyfriend Ryan Kattner.

Earlier this year, back in February, ABC aired the series finale of sitcom Fresh Off the Boat, in which Wu played mother-of-three Jessica Huang for six seasons.

In August 2019, Wu opened up to the Los Angeles Times about scaling back her social media presences and avoiding the spotlight. She told the outlet she has "had a back-and-forth about it; it's the line between being a role model but also authenticity."

"I think a lot of why people are lonely in this world is because they go through these Instagram feeds and everybody's life is perfect. Nobody trips up," said Wu at the time. "And sometimes I think, 'Might it be good to see our heroes mess up a little bit and not always be perfect?' "

"I do think when you have a platform, you ought to make sure you use it as well and responsibly as you can. But I want to be careful not to blow up my profile any more," she added. "If it happens as a natural extension of me doing the thing that I think I am meant to do, which is to be an actor, then I welcome it and I'm grateful for it. That's not the part of myself I'm seeking to put energy into ... but it teaches me."
