Danny Pudi is a dad — times two!

The Community star and his wife Bridget have welcomed twins, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Son James Timothy and daughter Fiona Leigh were born on Thursday, Jan. 12 — and are keeping the new parents on their toes!

“The ¼ Indian, ¼ Polish, ½ Irish twins are keeping us busy and we’re loving every minute of it,” Pudi, 32, tells Redeye Chicago.

The actor Tweeted Tuesday, “Daddyhood times 2! Thank you for all the well wishes. We couldn’t be more excited. Here’s to being pooped and peed on!”

The babies are the first for the couple, who wed in 2004.

I didn’t realize he was 32 and married, he plays the role of a college student so well I thought he was younger. Congrats Abed! Beautiful names!

Bree on

LOVE the names!! Anyone else dying to see a picture of these two?? With their heritage (And how cute their dad is 😉 ) I am guessing they are beyond adorable!!

Congrats to the happy new family of four 🙂

Wow! I didn’t realize he was 32! I always thought he was in his early 20’s! Congrats! I bet those babies are adorable.

James and Fiona in the morning!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Greatest show ever! We need at least 20 more seasons!!!

Congrats to the family.

I find it interesting that Fiona seems to be quite a popular name choice in the entertainment industry. I guess maybe Shrek had something to do with it? Is it popular in general in the US? Here in Australia it was popular in the 1970’s, not so much now.

I absolutely LOVE Community and think Mr. Pudi is beyond fantastic.

Congrats and many blessings to the family members!

Hello on

Jenn- I am 39 and in college!

Daisy- I wouldn’t go as far as to say Fiona is super-population amongst the general population here in the states, but it’s not what you’d call uncommon either. Incidentally, it is also of Irish/Celtic origin, so I’m guessing they choose it because of their Irish heritage. 🙂

Anyway, did they ever announce they were expecting? I don’t remember seeing an announcement here, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t one. Congrats to them, and I love the names!

Congrats Danny! I have had the privilege of growing up with him. He has always been funny and such a great guy! they are adorable!!

Anon, he is for the most part, pretty private. I don’t believe he announced the pregnancy.

Jenn on

Hello – I wasn’t trying to offend people who are over 30 and in college, he just looks younger than 32 to me, that’s all I meant. Good luck with your studies!

Carrie Jo on

Congrats to him and his wife! He is definitely my fav on Community.

a lot of celebrities DO have twins (often fraternal) as a result of IVF or some kind of fertility treatment, but that doesn’t seem the case here. bridget is only 32 and twins run in their family! congrats to the new parents times 2!
