It’s a boy for funny man and Get Out writer/producer Jordan Peele. The 38-year-old and wife, Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Chelsea Peretti, welcomed their son on July 1. It’s the first child for both stars and his name is Beaumont Gino Peele.

Peretti announced they were expecting in her usual funny fashion, putting up a post four days after Beyoncé shared her headline-making pregnancy news, and with the caption, “beyonce schmonce”:

Peele and Peretti started dating in 2013 and became engaged in 2015. Peretti shared with her followers that year that Peele proposed to her while the couple took part in her family’s “talent show.” They tied the knot in 2016 after eloping on the low. Despite the fact that the couple starred in a few commercials about destination weddings, they ditched all that for something low-key. The sole witness at their wedding was their adorable dog:

The new addition is yet another success for Peele in 2017, as he also celebrated his directorial debut, Get Out, being a massive hit this year. It became the highest-grossing feature film debut for a writer/director of an original screenplay, knocking The Blair Witch Project out of that spot. He was also crowned the first Black writer and director to have a debut film gross more than $100 million. May the winning streak continue.
