Rebel Wilson revealed that the name of her brand-new baby girl has a special nod to the late Queen Elizabeth II. The 42-year-old Australian comedian, who welcomed her first child via surrogate earlier this month, opened up about the meaning of her daughter’s full moniker, which is Royce Lillian Elizabeth Wilson. “Lillian and Elizabeth are both family names carried by women in my family who I admire,” Rebel told People on Nov. 8. “Elizabeth, which is also my middle name, after the late Queen.”

As for the unique first name of Royce, Rebel explained, “I wanted an original name starting with the letter R and so eventually landed on that one.” She also gushed about holding Royce for the first time, saying it was “overwhelming and exciting.” She added, “My love for her is just overflowing. She is gorgeous and perfect. I felt like, ‘Wow, this is such a precious miracle.’”

On Monday, the Pitch Perfect star took to her Instagram to announce the arrival of Royce. “I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she’s a beautiful miracle!” she wrote alongside a snap of the precious tot. “I am forever grateful to everyone who has been involved (you know who you are), this has been years in the making…but particularly wanted to thank my gorgeous surrogate who carried her and birthed her with such grace and care. Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift.”
