Meghan Markle's co-star and friend Patrick J. Adams is a dad. Adams, who acted opposite Markle on Suits, and his wife, Troian Bellisario, just had their first child, reported E!

The 32-year-old "Pretty Little Liars" actress Bellisario gave birth to the baby girl. This is the first child for both the actress and her 37-year-old "Suits" star husband. 

The actress announced the news on Instagram. She also shared the gender of their children and their hopes for her future.

"I cannot express how grateful I am," she wrote. "To the people who have protected us and kept our growing family safe and respected our privacy. To our tribe for expanding with grace and exponential amounts of love. To my @halfadams for being so supportive during every moment of my pregnancy and her birth. And to whatever incredible force of fate that brought this baby girl into our lives. I couldn't be more proud to be her mother. To bring a new girl into this world and to do my best to raise her to be kind, strong and whatever the heck she wants to be."

Adams also posted the news on Instagram. He thanked social media for allowing them to have a private pregnancy.

"The world just got 8lbs heavier," he wrote. "Thank you to everyone who fought for and protected our privacy during this incredible and beautiful time in our lives. Everyone is happy and healthy and loving every moment of this. I could not be more excited to bring a baby girl into this world at this moment. We will raise her to be powerful, to always speak her mind and heart and to live without fear. It's a brand new day and a brave new world and they are both beautiful."

Bellisario, who married Adams in a quiet, star-studded wedding in December 2016, kept out spotlight during her pregnancy. A picture of her sporting a small baby bump while the couple was vacationing Mykonos sparked speculation that they were expecting.

The picture was taken shortly after she and her husband added Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. E! News confirmed her pregnancy in August.

Congratulations to the couple on their baby! May God bless this newest addition.
