The couple welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday evening, a representative of the actor confirmed to PEOPLE.

Moore revealed that he and Dizon are expecting a daughter and had planned to name her Frankie, but no official name has been announced yet.
During his appearance on Hudson’s talk show — which is set to air on Thursday, 26th January, Moore says he’s “so excited” for fatherhood.
He goes on to admit,
“I was worried for a while that maybe that ship had sailed kind of thing, and, you know, God had my back and things lined up. …My life is pretty grand but I know once God does call my name, once I get this experience, I’ll be able to go to heaven whole.”
This is Moore’s first child. Dizon, 39, is mom already a mom to a daughter, Charli, and a son, Kaiden, from previous relationships.
