Daughter Heaven Rain Charvet is 6 pounds, 8 ounces, and 18 3/4 inches long.
"Mother and baby are doing very well and are now resting comfortably at home," Burke's rep tells Us. "Everything went well with the delivery, and Rain looks just like her mother."
According to a source, Burke, 35, and Charvet, 34, chose the name because "rain grows everything."
"She's an amazing baby," says the source. "She almost never cries. She's very quiet."
The couple, who have been friends for several years, began dating in 2005 and became engaged in August of 2006. The new parents plan to marry this spring.
Charvet tells Us, "I am the happiest man alive!"
Burke, who also hosted E!'s popular travel show Wild On, was previously married to Extreme Makeover plastic surgeon Garth Fisher, with whom she has two daughters, Neriah, 6, and Sierra Sky, 4.
Doesn't she look great in the pregnant pic? I wish I looked that great. It must be all that working out and dieting she does to stay in such a great form even throughout her pregnancy.Source

Women with inflammatory bowel disease are at increased risk for a number of adverse pregnancy outcomes, including premature birth and birth defects, according to the results of a review of previous studies.
Inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, includes Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. To better understand the effect of IBD on pregnancy outcomes, Dr. Paris P. Tekkis, from St. Mary's Hospital in London, and colleagues analyzed data from 12 studies on the topic.
All told, the studies involved 3907 women with IBD who were compared with 320,531 unaffected "controls."Compared with controls, IBD patients were approximately twice as likely to have a low birthweight baby, a premature birth, to undergo a cesarean delivery, and to have a baby with congenital abnormalities, the team reports in the medical journal Gut.
They say how best to manage pregnancies in women with IBD needs to be settled with a definitive study. From this, they hope, will come "a new set of guidelines, to help both patients and their clinicians determine best practice."
