Riverdale actor KJ Apa and his model girlfriend Clara Berry have welcomed a baby boy.
The 24-year-old star is now a father to his newborn son Sasha Vai Keneti Apa who was born on September 23.
Clara, 27, confirmed her newborn’s arrival in an adorable Instagram post on Sunday featuring the baby boy’s hands.
“He is a perfect perfection. I am the luckiest to have now two men of my life, filling my heart with this cosmic gigantic vast love,” she wrote.
Clara’s followers were quick to comment on the post, including KJ’s Riverdale co-star Lili Reinhart who wrote: “Can’t wait to meet him congratulations.”
One fan wrote: “Waooooooo congratulations!!!! best news ever,” and another added: “YOU ARE THE BEST MOTHER IN THE WORLD!!!”
KJ and Clara were first linked to one another in August 2020 when he shared a series of nude photos featuring the model as they enjoyed a holiday together at an undisclosed location.
And in December last year, KJ referred to Clara as his “love” while celebrating her 27th birthday.
Posting a mirror selfie of them alongside two red heart emoji on his Instagram Story, he wrote in the caption: “Happy birthday my love.”
The couple revealed their baby news earlier this year via Instagram with KJ simply sharing a picture of them with Clara’s pregnant belly on display.
The 27-year-old French model then shared another picture of herself with a “cooking” emoji to signify the saying of having a “bun in the oven”.
Speaking to Australian Men’s Health about the pregnancy earlier this year, the New Zealand actor revealed how excited he was for his unborn child’s arrival.
He said: “I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life, other than the fact that I want to be a father.
“It’s a lonely place, this industry. Human interactions are no longer the same for me.
“I’m searching. I’m searching for genuine relationships with people who genuinely care about me and who I care about, not because of who I am or who they are,” he added.
KJ is best known for playing Archie Andrews in the CW drama series Riverdale, which is available to steam on Netflix.
