Actor tweets photo of his son’s hand, surprises fans
Actor Fred Savage and wife Jennifer Stone have welcomed another tiny member into their family. Jennifer gave birth sometime this week, with the actor choosing to break the happy news to fans on Twitter.He posted a photo of the baby’s tiny hand and a side of his face, with the caption “he’s here.” It was all the announcement he needed to make.
Fred and Jennifer already have two children, Oliver, 6, and Lily, 4.
What makes this third pregnancy a hot topic is that both proud parents managed to keep completely mum on the topic, so that when they announced the birth, fans were completely taken aback by it.
Fred and Jennifer were married in 2004 and, truth be told, they always made a rather quirky couple, as People noted at the time.
The two were actually childhood sweethearts but were parted when Fred moved to LA to pursue a career in acting. They reconnected 11 years later and, as per their own words, they immediately realized they were meant to be.
“We started talking and smooching, and we've been together ever since,” Savage said at the time.
They were married in a ceremony that also included personalized vows.
“I promised to always bring up a glass of water to her before we go to bed, and she promised to never let me dress myself,” the actor said on the same occasion.
While he managed to keep the pregnancy a secret, not the same can be said about his brother Ben, who took to Twitter earlier this week to gush about “expecting” – well, sort of.
“I'm going to be a father!” he wrote. “Well, on TV at least. The ‘Boy Meets World’ sequel is officially happening!” the actor further enthused.
Fred and Jennifer are yet to announce the name of their baby boy but, considering they kept the pregnancy such a secret, they probably have no intention of doing that anytime soon.
