Eric Ladin is one killer new dad.

The former Killing actor and his wife Katy welcomed their first child, son Maxfield David Ladin, on Friday, Dec. 21 in Los Angeles, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“Wow! The last 24 hrs have been the best of my life. Forever changed, I am now a father,” the actor says.

Announcing the pregnancy in May, the first-time father admitted he and his fashion designer/stylist wife were thrilled to be starting a family — despite entering into the unknown.

“Katy and I couldn’t be happier, we have always wanted to be parents. Now what the hell do we do?” Ladin, 34, joked.

I don’t know this couple, and have never heard the name Maxfield before, but I think I like it. Different, but not strange. Congrats on the new babe!

Congrats to them! I love the name, and am guessing Maxfield is probably Katy’s maiden name or some other family surname. 🙂

Maxfield is funky but traditional, I actually really like it. Max is an adorable nickname, too 🙂
