Laura Linney has joined the 50 club! The Golden Globe-winning actress kicks off her 50th year with a sweet little addition to her family, a baby boy. Linney and her husband Marc Schauer—who have been married since 2009—recently welcomed their first child together, Bennett Armistead Schauer, back in January and it's safe to say her 50th year is looking out to be an exciting one.

With a few Golden Globe and Oscar nominations under her belt, Linney has remained a fixture on both the big and small screen, from her mesmerizing performance in Mystic River alongside Sean Penn and Kevin Bacon, Love Actually, to the recent Hyde Park On Hudson opposite Bill Murray, and her award-winning portrayal as a cancer-stricken woman in The Big C. As for Linney's next role? Motherhood!
