The Americans co-stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys have welcomed their first child together.  While the couple have not released information about the baby’s gender or name, they have been spotted strolling around their New York City neighborhood with the newborn.

A source told US Weekly, “Keri and Matt both look overjoyed and are over the moon to be new parents. They are always snapping pictures of the baby, and family and friends have been sending gifts.”

The couple met and fell in love on the set of their show, The Americans.  Keri was previously married to Shane Deary, a carpenter, and has two children with him; an 8-year-old son named River and a 4-year-old daughter named Willa.  Russell and Deary separated in 2013; Rhys and Russell were linked later that year.
