Former HERCULES star Kevin Sorbo and his actress wife SAM JENKINS SORBO became parents for the third time when they welcomed their first daughter into the world yesterday (16OCT05).

The baby girl, who has yet to be named, was born in Henderson, Nevada, weighing a healthy 8 pounds, 7 ounces (3.8 kilograms).

Sorbo says, "My wife is knocked out right now, but she and the baby are doing well. We're all happy and doing fine.

"When we got married, I told my wife that we were going to have three kids. First two boys and then a girl. I can't (make predictions about) the stock market, but with babies I have been exactly right."

Sorbo, 47, and Jenkins, 40, are also the parents of two boys: BRAEDEN COOPER, four, and SHANE HAAKEN, one.
