Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are officially both costars and coparents!

The Americans stars welcomed their first child together earlier this month, PEOPLE has confirmed.

A source close to the couple confirmed to PEOPLE in January that the pair were expecting a baby, saying that Russell and Rhys were “thrilled” about the upcoming addition to their family.

This is the first child for Rhys, 41, and the third for Russell, 40, who is already mom to daughter Willa, 4, and son River, 8, with ex-husband Shane Deary.

When you are both married to other people while screwing each other, it kind of takes the warm fuzzy feels away from news like this.

Tim on

So now this family includes a son, daughter and child! Best of all worlds!

Scarlet on

Kir, Matthew Rhys has never been married. If you’re going to pretend to be a know-it-all about their private lives you might wanna get your facts straight first.

Ha! Do your homework next time, kir.

addition to their family? What family? They’re not a family. It’s fine for them to be thrilled about the “addition,” but “to their family?” Are her children part of “their family?” Dunno…it’s just a cliche phrase.

I do think two children were enough for her.

DaisyMoon on

So we’re to assume she had a boy or girl, right?

Great sleuthing PEOPLE mag.

“I do think two children were enough for her.”

Really? I’m so glad that you feel like you know how many children she should have. Get over yourself.

And YES, they are a family. There are all different kids of families.

Beautiful parents, beautiful family. Hope the baby is health and wish them all happiness!

They seem like a cute couple … I have seen pictures of her ex-husband and somehow these two seem better suited.

Poppy on

How nice for the two people that were screwing each other while married to other people.

Jax on

What a cute couple. They seem very happy, and I wish them well.

Rocket on

OK… I thought the article seemed a little strange and was missing something…the fact that they were having an affair now fits the story…

I thought he was gay. I’ve missed much. Great show and congrats.

once the sitcom is cancelled/ends, and Keri starts sleeping with her next co-star, she’ll have 3 unlucky kids without a father there on a daily basis.

Budd on

Sitcom. LOL.

P. on

According to this blog, the baby’s a boy.

So many judgmental people here in this article. Nobody knows anything about Keri & Matthew’s relationship, including how long they’ve been together, except for them. The accusations of her cheating on her husband with him need to stop.

Kristy on

Oh, they had a little American! Congratulations, Keri and Matthew!
