Baby makes three! Actor Eric Balfour has welcomed his first child with wife Erin, Us Weekly can confirm.

The 24 alum’s longtime love reportedly gave birth to a baby boy, whose name has yet to be revealed, on Thursday, August 2, in Santa Monica, California. The little one weighed in at 7 lbs, 6 oz.

“This is the most amazing day of our lives and couldn’t be happier to welcome this perfect being into the world,” the Six Feet Under actor, 41, told Us.

Balfour announced his wife’s pregnancy in May. “We’re pretty lucky to have each other … I think the little baby boy growing in Erin’s belly is gonna be super stoked to hang out with us,” he captioned a cute shot of the couple with their dog, Coconut.

“Coconut is going to be this little summer baby’s greatest companion,” he wrote. “Erin will teach him to be kind and gentle just like her, I’m going to take him surfing, and camping, and skateboarding, and we’ll teach him to dance and sing along with us. I’m gonna be [a] dad yo! ✌🏽”

The following month, the Haven star, who got married to Erin in May 2015, shared a photo of her and Coconut getting lessons about how to secure their baby while driving.

“Yes that is a doll being used to teach me, Erin, and Coconut how to properly put our baby in his car seat,” Balfour wrote at the time. “No joke, this dude was on point. I feel like I just went through baby boot camp. #dadlife.”
