Maple is a perfect and wonderful name."

Maple's birth came after Zoli spent the past several months documenting her pregnancy on social media, with Zoli first revealing she was pregnant with a "beach bumpin'" photo from her family's vacation to Kuai back in July. She went on to share several more photos from that trip, including stunning images of her cradling her growing baby bump as she posed on the beach. Just before Maple's birth, Zoli and Lucas marked their seven-year anniversary, with the actress reflecting in a sweet Aug. 1 post, "so many new and exciting things, so much change and opportunity in our life right now, I'm so happy we're living this crazy life together..."
