He may not have been able to do all of the pushing, heavy breathing and sweating, but Devious Maids star Matt Cedeño played an important role in welcoming his now 2-week-old son Jaxon Cruz into the world.

“I was right there, as they say, in the catcher position,” Cedeño, 38, tells PEOPLE with a laugh.
