Actor Dulé Hill and his wife Jazmyn Simon have something wonderful to celebrate. They announced that they welcomed a baby boy earlier in May. 

"So @JazmynSimon & I have been keeping another secret," tweeted Hill on Wednesday. "With love & gratitude we introduce our sweet son, Levi Dulé Hill."

The "Suits" and former "Psych" star, 44, and wife Jazmyn Simon welcomed their son on Friday, May 10, reported PEOPLE. The couple confirmed the news to PEOPLE.

“We are sleep deprived,” admits the new father of two. “Especially Mom, who is breastfeeding! But we are so in love and full of gratitude and awe of this miraculous moment in time.”

Levi joins his older sister Kennedy, 14. The baby was 7 lbs., 10 oz., and he was 19½ inches long.

Levi was given a Biblical name to honor his parents' religious faith. Hill has regularly praised God for His goodness throughout this stage of his life. 

Hill shared a bit of their birth story: “The baby was breech, so we had a [cesarean] section,” he says. “Right before Levi was born, our doctor said, ‘In 15 seconds, you’re going to meet your son.’ And we did. And instantly, our hearts doubled in size.”

“Every time we blink, he seems to change,” Hill told PEOPLE, noting that they are taking numerous photos. “We smile and cry a lot, realizing how desperately we needed someone we had never met.”

They said they are soaking up the moments. 

“With a 14-year-old, we realize how fast time goes,” says Hill. “So we are just taking in each moment as they come. Oh, and we are looking forward to him learning to tap dance. Obviously!”

Hill and Simon were married in April 2018 at the Garden of the Capuchinas in Antigua, Guatemala. They were joined by friends and family. 

Congratulations to the couple on their baby! May God bless their family.
