It's been a big week for Anna Chlumsky.

A week before earning her first Emmy nomination for Veep, Chlumsky welcomed daughter Penelope Joan, People reports.

"She's a really good mix between my husband [Shaun So] and me," Chlumsky says of Penelope, born July 11. "When she's with him, you see him, and when she's with me, you see me. She's a perfect mix. ... [Motherhood is] seriously the best thing. Holding her is fantastic. It's one of the more enjoyable things. It doesn't get boring at all. I could hold her all day."
