NEW YORK (CBS) Diablo Cody announced the birth of her baby boy in the same place where she told the world she was expecting him.

Marcello is the first child for Cody, whose real name is Brooke Busey, and her husband, Daniel Maurio.

Cody confirmed the pregnancy in April.

"Thanks for the congrats on my fetus," Cody, 31, wrote on Twitter at the time. "No secrets here; just thought it would be fun to see how big I could get before someone noticed."
