Turns out it was a baby boy after all!

Actor Danny McBride and his wife Gia have welcomed their first child, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Son Declan George was born Monday, Sept. 26 in Los Angeles, Calif.

“Mom and son (and dad) are doing great!” the rep shares.

McBride, 34, announced the pregnancy in April, joking that he “had never impregnated someone before, so I didn’t really realize what they teach you in health class is actually true.”

Eastbound and Down returns to television in January with the season three premiere on HBO.

Who the HELL would have a baby with him? You notice they dont show a pic of his “wife”! Gia what? The former supermodel, lol?

In response to Brutony: I think McBride is a tool-although the way he “tries” to act cool, is kinda funny. All you need to have a kid is a functioning Johnson

Erin – Good. I’m glad someone laughed! It was my favorite line from the movie. I just love everything he has been in. So I had to comment even though I rarely do. Plus I just adore the name Declan. haha 😀

Wow, why do people have to be so mean on here. Didn’t you ever learn “If you don’t have anything nice to say; don’t say anything at all.”? It goes to show how jealous people are that they have to bash people all the time. Grow up. Anyways, Congrats Danny and Gia!
