Congrats are in order for funny guy Kenan Thompson, 36, and wife, Christina Evangeline, who welcomed a daughter this weekend. Baby girl Georgia Marie Thompson was born on Friday, June 20, in New York City, according to TMZ.

The Saturday Night Live star and Evangeline married in 2011.

“I’m about to be a daddy. Papa Kenan! I am terrified,” he joked during a March appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. “I don’t know what to do with babies. I plan to be at the casino when she’s giving birth, like old schoolin’ it.”

Looks like Kenan figured things out and made it to delivery.


“While you were sleeping,” Christina captioned a photo on Instagram, which shows proud new dad Kenan gazing at Georgia in her bassinet.
“We’re just really sleepy,” she captioned an adorable photo of herself holding the tiny baby.

“Kenan and his wife Christina welcomed daughter Georgia into the world at 6 1/2 pounds,” the actor’s spokesperson said. “The family is home and absolutely blessed.”

The newborn’s name hits close to home—Thompson was born and raised in Atlanta.
