He’s a good dad!

Former Good Wife star Josh Charles is a new father after welcoming a son on Tuesday, Dec. 9, PEOPLE has confirmed exclusively.

Charles’s baby boy — whose name has not been released — is his first child with wife Sophie Flack.

The couple let Flack’s belly do the talking when they stepped out for the Heifer International’s Beyond Hunger: A Place At The Table gala in August.

Although they knew the sex of their baby on the way, Charles and Flack, a former ballet dancer, decided to keep it under wraps.

Charles, 43, surprised fans when he exited the hit series last March, after his character was killed by his client in the courtroom.

anony, who doesn’t know he got killed off? For goodness’ sake, I don’t even watch the show and I know that. If I were “catching up” on the show that far past the event, I would just be watching to see how well they did it! Congrats to the happy couple; have fun with your precious baby boy!
