Johnathon Schaech‘s show has some stiff competition — and the first-time father isn’t afraid to admit it.

“The best show isn’t Ray Donovan anymore. It’s watching Camden Quinn on the baby monitor for hours,” the actor jokes to PEOPLE.

“I look in Camden’s eyes and I see nothing but his future — and my purpose.”

The new dad introduced his baby boy on his Twitter account Thursday with a black and white photo of father and son sharing a sweet smooch.

“Camden Quinn — Daddy loves you!!!” Schaech, 43, captioned the memorable moment.

“From the moment Camden was born, I changed for the good — forever,” he tells PEOPLE.

For her part, the actor’s wife Julie Solomon shared her own snapshot via Instagram in honor of the weekly Throwback Thursday tradition. “#tbt to last week, when my 3-week-old was a 2-week-old,” she writes of the serene picture cradling her sleeping son.

The newlyweds welcomed their first child on Sept. 12, shortly after the couple tied the knot during a sunset ceremony on the beach in Ocean City, Md.

“It all makes sense now,” Schaech told PEOPLE following his son’s arrival. “We are so happy and beyond excited — life has just begun.”

Ray Donovan? Who’s heard of that show?

best part is the baby’s toes in that second photo. Baby feet. There is just nothing in the world like baby feet. sigh.

Are you kidding Jennifer? One of the best new shows this year, starring Liev Schreiber as a “fixer.” So good. Sorry you don’t watch quality programming.

Charli on

Love the photos! Congrats to them!

i don’t know who these people are…The whole “My kid has changed me forever” thing is so laughable, to say it politely. Most of those people forget they have kids when they turn 10 and stop being cute. If you wanna change, do it for yourself and because you want to.

I agree with Mia!

Jennifer, you really have never heard of Ray Donovan? The pilot the show had the biggest premiere of any show…ever…on Showtime. I don’t even watch the show and I have heard of it. Who hasn’t heard of it is the question!

heather on

Never heard of it either.

Such a sweet picture of father and son…I am very happy for the Schaech family.

Throw back picture from 3 weeks to 2 weeks!!!! Hilarious and soooo cute at the same time! Congrats!!!!

Carolyn on

Lovely picture, but already sick of name Camden. His middle name, Quinn, would have been more interesting.

Amanda on

Lovely pictures..congratulations to the family! Babies are such a blessing!

Oh, Johnathon, how you make me love you and your little boy in that black and white shot. Beautiful!

Nancy on

Wow, welcome to real life! Duh . . .

Never heard of this “actor”. Real Celebrities don’t submit pictures of their baby. They want privacy and want to keep their children out of the magazines. This guy obviously wants to be in the spotlight like a reality tv star.

That little baby boy is smiling while daddy is kissing him. Beautiful picture!!!
