Tyler Ritter Welcomes First Child — a Boy!

Tyler Ritter is a father!

The actor, 32, and wife, Leila Parma, welcomed their first child — a boy — and shared the happy news Sunday on Instagram. “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life. He’s Benjamin Parma Ritter. And we’re feeling good,” Ritter captioned a father-son photo.

Benjamin is the first grandson of the late comedian and actor John Ritter.

Tyler’s brother Jason Ritter, who starred in Girls, tweeted about the joy of becoming an uncle: “I couldn’t be happier today!”

Tyler and Jason’s mother Nancy, who was married to John from 1977–1996, also happily tweeted: “I’m newly and again in love!”

John Ritter, the Emmy-award winning star who became a household name playing bumbling wannabe-Casanova Jack Tripper on ’70s TV hit Three’s Company, died suddenly from an arterial problem in September 2003.

Tyler has landed roles on NCISNCIS: New Orleans, Young and Hungry, and most recently Arrow.
