Let the parenting games begin: Wes Chatham is a dad!

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 actor and his wife, American Ninja Warrior host Jenn Brown, welcomed son John Nash at 5:33 p.m., on Monday, Nov. 24, the couple confirms to PEOPLE.

“We are already in love and can’t wait to take our little Nash home,” the proud new parents tell PEOPLE.

The mom-to-be celebrated the pending arrival of their first child — and revealed the sex of her baby on the way — with a Southern gentleman-themed baby shower in October.

But finding out she was expecting a baby boy was not a big surprise for Brown.

“I did actually feel like it was going to be a boy,” Brown, 33, told PEOPLE. “When my friends and family would ask, I would say, ‘I think it’s a boy,’ although I really had nothing to base it on — just a gut feeling!”

The moment the mom-to-be was most looking forward to, however, was finally seeing her main men together.

“I know [Wes] will be a wonderful father and I can’t wait to see him hold our little guy for the first time in his arms,” she said.

Chatham, 36, and Brown (who’s now enjoying her monogrammed POSH Mommy necklace) announced the pregnancy in July.

Why give a child a name you’re not going to use…? They named him John but are calling him by his middle name Nash. Just name him Nash.
