Actor Max Thieriot and his wife Lexi Murphy quietly welcomed their first child, a son named Beaux Thieriot, this month. The Bates Hotel actor had not publicly acknowledged the pregnancy, but took to Instagram with a sweet photo of the baby boy, writing: “Christmas came early this year! [Lexi] and I are so excited to announce the birth of our son Beaux. We love him to the moon!”

In addition to Bates Motel, which was just renewed by A&E for two more seasons, Thieriot starred in the recently released Point Break film.  Outside of his acting roles, Max is a vintner. Together with several friends he owns several vineyards and distributes wine under the label Senses.

Max and Lexi dated for eight years before marrying in June of 2013.
