The most recent big-screen appearances for Howard, 30, were in “50/50” and as a member of the ensemble cast of “The Help.” She also appeared in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.” Her movie career began with uncredited bit parts in films by her director-producer father.

“Beatrice’s arrival is hugely exciting for our family,” Ron Howard tweeted. “Thanks for all the kind tweets folks.”
