The Ted Lasso star, 51, and his fiancée Shannon Nelson have welcomed their second baby together. The couple confirmed the news via social media on Monday.

Both parents uploaded photos on Instagram, sharing many of the same sweet images, but adding their own heartfelt captions.

Hunt announced that Archibald Felix Nelson Hunt was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Friday, ahead of his due date because he “felt like rolling up three days early.”

The newborn, who is “in perfect health, has already been nicknamed “Archie," and has already had an eventful first few days, according to his father.

“He’s met his bro and his grandmother and he’s even watched his first Arsenal game,” the actor continued in his caption.

“Meet Archie Felix Nelson Hunt. Born roaring on Friday 3/1/24 at 11:06pm. 9lbs 3.4oz and 21 inches long,” Nelson wrote for her upload.

“Your mom and dad, big brother Seanie and Lucy 😻 are so completely in love and so lucky you decided to join us so our family hugs will only be stronger. I love you my sweet baby🩵🩷,” she added.

The couple are already parents to 2-year-old son Sean.

She echoed similar sentiments when celebrating Ted Lasso's season 3 finale with a series of on-set Instagram photos.
