Chris Klein‘s first child is here on Earth!

The actor and his wife Laina Rose Thyfault welcomed son Frederick Easton Klein on Saturday, July 23, in Austin, Texas, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“So incredibly blessed and forever grateful for my amazing wife & our healthy baby boy. Laina delivered me a miracle,” the American Pie alum, 37, wrote on social media, sharing a photo of his newborn.

The new mom also took to social media, posting a snapshot of her son on Instagram with the caption, “This little Champ has already mastered his warrior pose and is doing great. Our hearts are bursting with love and joy.”

“Mom and baby are home and doing well. Chris is so madly in love and adjusting to life with much less sleep,” his rep adds.

Klein and Thyfault announced they were expecting their first child in March. The actor took to Twitter on his birthday to share the happy news.

Next to a photo of his beloved’s bare belly bump, Klein wrote, “My beautiful wife Laina and I are expecting our first child. 23 weeks along. Gratefully blessed on my 37th B-Day.”

The couple were married in an outdoor ceremony in August 2015 after a four-year courtship and December 2014 engagement.

Klein described their Montana nuptials as the “perfect day,” adding that he and his wife love nature and have families who enjoy traveling, so the location was perfect for them.

“Promising forever was definitely the highlight,” Klein, who has struggled with and overcome alcoholism in the past, told PEOPLE shortly following their wedding day. “Nothing gets better than that.”

Congratulations! And why is this section called “Moms and Babies” when it is clearly about fathers as well. How about parents and babies?

She looks WAY older than 30 and “Fred”? Really?

Cute baby, I wonder if Suri knows she has a new baby brother.

Yay! Suri finally has a sibling!

I didn’t know he had an alcoholic history.

So nice that he finally has a child for himself instead of handing it off to Tom Cruise. I hope Suri gets to meet her baby brother soon.

Yup maybe the baby looks like Suri.
