Rockmond Dunbar and wife Maya welcome daughter, Berkeley Seon

A belated congratulations to actor Rockmond Dunbar from The Mentalist on the birth of his daughter, Berkeley Seon.

Dunbar, known for his role in  the Showtime TV show Soul Food  and Prison Break  tweeted the news:

 “Mom is doing great,” he tweeted on December 6. “We are absolutely in LOVE with our daughter.”

His wife, actress Maya Gilbert Dunbar stars in this season of Banshee on Cinemax. The couple got engaged in December 2012 and married in June 2013.

Back in October, Dunbar had to clear up with his Twitter followers that Maya had not yet given birth after they misinterpreted his “praise” tweet.

Last September, Dunbar’s co-stars (Vanessa Williams, Boris Kodjoe and spouse/co-star Nicole Ari Parker and Malinda Williams)  from the serial sitcom spun off the hit cult classic move Soul Food came out to help him celebrate the impending arrival at a baby shower for Maya.
