Congratulations to John Stamos and his wife, Caitlin McHugh — the couple welcomed their first child together, a baby boy, on Sunday evening!

John made the announcement on Instagram, sharing the sweetest photo of their new addition, as well as explaining his name, Billy.

John wrote: “From now on, the best part of me will always be my wife and my son. Welcome Billy Stamos (named after my father)  #NotJustanUncleAnymore #Overjoyed.”

Billy is of English origin, a shortened form of William, which means “strong-willed warrior.”

In December, John posted a throwback photo of his dad, writing at the time: “I will certainly fall short of the father my pop was, but — I’m going to give it my all! #Balance #BillStamos#Hero.”

John and Caitlin were married in February after two and a half years together.
