Congratulations to Danica McKellar and her husband Mike Verta!
The Wonder Years alum and bestselling author gave birth to her first child Tuesday (September 7), a boy named Draco Verta. He weighed in at 7 lbs., 2 oz.
We are humbled, overjoyed and so grateful for this miraculous gift,” the happy couple told PEOPLE in a statement. “It’s like we’ve only now just learned the true meaning of love.”
McKellar, 35 – now a mathematician and best-selling author of three books on the subject, including HOT X: Algebra Exposed – wed composer Verta in March 2009.
In July, Danica opened up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her hopes for a natural childbirth: “Absolutely. That being said, I know we can’t always know what medical surprises may happen during childbirth. But my hope is to go fully natural – no epidural, no interventions. Wish me luck!”
