Baby Boy Meets World! Rider Strong and his wife of just over a year, Alexandra Barreto, are the proud parents of a bouncing baby boy.

The couple, who managed to keep their pregnancy entirely under wraps, welcomed their bundle of joy into the world just after Christmas, Strong's rep confirms to Us Weekly.

The little tot was born on Sunday, Dec. 28 and is named Indigo "Indy" Barreto Strong.

Indy is the first child for his photogenic parents, who were married in October 2013 at a summer camp-themed wedding in Oregon, where all guests stayed in bunks after the ceremony and played games, did a rope course, and even participated in a talent show.

"[I'm] incredibly lucky to be getting married to my best friend and partner-in-crime," Strong, 35, told Us before his nuptials.

The new parents first met on the now-cancelled TV series Pepper Dennis in 2006, and also worked together on a Barack Obama presidential campaign video. They became engaged in December 2012.
