Cue the pink balloons! Aaron Paul and his wife, Lauren, have welcomed their first child together, a baby girl. According to her birth certificate, which was obtained by The Blast, the new parents named their daughter Story Annabelle.
“There are no words that will ever be able to explain what just happened to my heart,” the proud mom captioned an Instagram pic of their newborn on Thursday, February 8. The actor, meanwhile, shared a pic of their daughter’s foot while at the hospital. He gushed: “My heart.”
The Path actor, 38, opened up about his soon-to-be bundle of joy while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, January 23. “[She’s due] any minute now,” he revealed. “I love babies, I’ve always loved babies.”
Paul and the Kind Campaign founder announced their pregnancy news in September 2017. “Hey everyone. Look what I did,” the Central Intelligence star captioned an Instagram photo of Lauren’s baby bump at the time. “Words can’t express how excited I am that this little one has entered our lives. Just thought it was time I would share this beautiful news with all of you.”
The couple revealed their baby-to-be’s gender the following month, and the Breaking Bad alum boasted about his brood while chatting with Us Weekly in December of that year. “I hang out in her nursery a lot, it’s almost done. It’s quickly turned into our favorite room of the house,” he gushed. “Everything’s very light and just warm, it feels like little nest. It’s the most exciting time of our lives.”
Aaron added that, while he’s not nervous for fatherhood, he plans on protecting his daughter when she stars dating. “I’m not going to be polishing my shotgun or anything, but yeah,” he joked.
The Emmy winner and the philanthropist met at the Coachella festival and got engaged in January 2012. The duo wed in May 2013 in a Parisian-themed ceremony in Malibu.
