And baby makes six!

Neal McDonough and his wife Ruvé welcomed their fourth child, daughter Clover Elizabeth, on Monday in Los Angeles, the actor tells PEOPLE.

“Ruvé gave birth to a beauty! 8½ lbs. and 21 inches with thick dark hair like her gorgeous Mommy,” the Captain America: The First Avenger star, 45, says. “Ruvé is recovering well – we are so blessed.”

Clover joins elder siblings London Jane, 19 months, Catherine Maggie, 4, and Morgan Patrick, 5½, who “went crazy” for their newest sister.

“London hugged and kissed her saying, ‘Baby … mine!’” McDonough tells PEOPLE.

Son Morgan suggested the baby’s name, which was inspired by the four-leaf clover. “It has four leaves and this is our fourth child. Clover signifies good luck – I’m Irish and Ruvé’s favorite color is green,” the actor explains.

Clover was born at Good Samaritan Hospital, where McDonough serves as celebrity chairperson. “It’s a wonderful, amazing hospital,” he says. “All of our children have been born there.”
