Congratulations to actors Jason Ritter and Melanie Lynskey — the couple recently welcomed their first child together, according to Us Weekly.
The couple didn’t announce their pregnancy, nor the baby’s birth, but are said to have had a baby in early December 2018. Given the lack of details, it’s no surprise that the name of their baby is not known either.
Jason’s friend, director Neema Barnette, congratulated the couple last month on Instagram, writing: “Congrats to Raising Dion Co Star Jason Ritter & his wife on the birth of their beautiful Sag baby girl. Babies are a blessing & so is Jason!”
She added: “What a hands down brilliant talent & exceptional human being he is! I’m blessed to have shared creative energy with you. Thank you for giving me a seamless performance.”
Jason and Melanie were spotted out and about with their baby girl on January 26 — a fan who saw them tweeted: “I saw @JasonRitter and @melanielynskey at the airport and I smiled at her and I hope she took that as ‘I love you, you’ve been in so many movies I adore and your baby is adorable.’”
Jason and Melanie were engaged in 2017 after four years of dating.
