Kenan Thompson Welcomes Daughter Georgia Marie Mary Ellen Matthews/NBC

Kenan Thompson has many more late nights ahead of him — he’s officially a daddy!

The Saturday Night Live star, 36, and wife Christina Evangeline welcomed a baby girl on Friday, June 20, in New York City, reports TMZ.

Daughter Georgia Marie weighed in at 6 lbs.

Evangeline took to Instagram to show off their new addition. “We’re just really sleepy,” she captioned an aww-out-loud selfie.

It’s the first child for the couple, who married in November 2011.

“I’m about to be a daddy. Papa Kenan! I am terrified,” he joked during a March visit to the Late Night with Seth Meyers studio. “I don’t know what to do with babies. I plan to be at the casino when she’s giving birth, like old schoolin’ it.”

So adorable happy for them…he’s such a good guy. He seems low key and down to earth and I love the name nothing attention seeking and outrageous like apple, blue, north and future!

I am so happy for Kenan! He is the best comedian on SNL! I wish him and his wife all the happiness in the world! I don’t know him personally, but he seems really nice & will be a great father! I also like that the child has a normal name. : )

Is it just me or does it seem like she wasn’t as concerned about getting her daughter in that picture as she was her entire face? LOL

LOL is it just me or does it seem like she was a little more concerned about getting her entire face into that picture than her and her daughter- where’s the rest of the baby’s head?

Looked quickly at the headline and thought it read, “KENAN THOMPSON IS DEAD!”

Darcie on

Ha me too!

“Honey, I’m gonna take a selfie since the baby just popped out and I wanna capture her first moment. Hold on, let me fix my hair and put on makeup…”

brought hair stylist and pout-mouth to hospital! Good call! Baby is afterthought in that pic, and jeez, dad is wearing a ball cap, what is he, 18? Aw, never mind….the takeaway is…that…the mother is really really really REALLLLLY pretty. Baby’s name is nice. I can’t remember, wasn’t he dating or engaged to a woman who was a stripper or escort or something perfectly legal and to which I do not in any way object??? too lazy to google it now. enjoy your bambina, Kenan….stay with SNL too, you make me laugh.
