Lost alum Evangelina Lilly, 31, gave birth to a baby boy. It is the first child for Lilly and boyfriend Norman Kali who worked as a production assistant on the hit ABC show.
The actress recently told New York Magazine she was happy to take time off from the busy production schedule of a weekly show: "This show is all-encompassing. We have had very little experience outside of the show during the last six years because it's just so demanding; it requires so much of us. So, it's exciting to have your freedom back, essentially."
Lilly dated costar Dominic Monghan from 2004- 2009. Though she has enjoyed popular and critical success as an actress, even receiving a Golden Globe nomination for her role on the popular drama, Lilly said acting is not her dream job: "'I'm definitely planning on taking a break for a little while," she said. "I consider acting a day job -- it's not my dream; it's not my be-all, end-all."

Sunday night's 2 1/2 hour finale will air in Europe at the same time the secrets of the island will finally be revealed to us west coasters in a bid to curb illegal downloading of the popular series.
UK fans will have to watch the show at 5am if they want to see it before spoilers ruin what could be one of the biggest "oh my God" moments in television.
Of course, the show will air three hours earlier on the east coast -- so why not simulcast the finale at the same time the world over rather than make certain time zones watch it three hours behind?

Lost's premiere Wednesday night left many die-hard fans a little, well, lost. Although some loved the parallel realities, others felt the flashsideways was a copout of Bobby Ewing proportions.
One fan on ABC's Lost forum commented, "my first impression is no, I didn't like [the episode] much. It seemed like such a cop out, having two realities . . . it just turned into, yeah, this was the easiest thing [writers] could do."
Another disgruntled viewer noted, "I'm confused and LOST, I feel as if I'm going through final exams week. These writers are killing me." I agree with the test analogy, I felt I had to watch two hours of catchup shows just to be prepared for the premiere!
But others loved the mind-bending time travel premiere, saying, "I thought it was an awesome start to the final season," on The Blog Prophet. "Questions? Yes. But without them, it would be boring!"
As Lost begins its last supper, will viewers (who were up 6% for the premiere) stick around for the answers producers promise to deliver in Lost's final season?
