A picture can say a thousand words — or in Fred Savage‘s case, announce his son’s birth!

In a surprising post on Twitter Monday, the former Wonder Years star Tweeted a sweet snapshot of a newborn’s hand, with a simple yet telling caption.

“He’s here,” Savage, 36, wrote.

Baby boy is the third child for the actor and his wife Jennifer, who are already parents to son Oliver Philip, 6, and daughter Lily Aerin, 4½.

Never announcing the pregnancy, Savage is continuing to stay mum on any further details surrounding his new son — including a birth date and name.

NM- Why I wonder is, why didn’t he do the same with his other two children? I understand wanting to be private, but why be private with one child’s info and not the other two? Not bashing him, just wondering why some celebs do that (share the name, birthdate, etc. of some of their kids but not all of them).

In anycase, congrats to the Savages!

NM, I wonder how many months it was before anyone knew about your child”s birth, name, etc? Did you wait a week? A month? or 6 months, before you told anyone? Maybe they found out by accident, or you decided to “share” the news whenever. What is THAT about?

When I had my kids I was thrilled to let everyone know, and while I don’t believe stars necessarily “owe” us every detail of their lives…I don’t know why you think holding back the news of their new baby warrants some badge or trophy. It actually seems a bit pretentious to wait months to say what you had or what the name is. Of course, since some of you think you get to criticize the names, that might be understandable.

Congratulations! Now, on the other hand, is it just me or do these two look like twins?
