It's a boy! Keri Russell reveals baby's name, sex to TODAY's Matt Lauer

Keri Russell and her "Americans" co-star — and real-life partner — Matthew Rhys welcomed their first child together in May, but the couple has remained mum about the baby since.

Until now!

Russell visited TODAY Friday and shared some details about the bundle of joy — including the fact that it's a boy!

"He's so good," the former "Felicity" star told Matt Lauer. "He's big and fat and nice."

Basically, everything you want in a baby.

Oh, and she told us his name, too: Sam!

The actress, who has two other children — River, 9, and Willa, 4 — with ex-husband Shane Deary.

Congratulations to the happy family!

But that's not all we'd like to congratulate Russell for — she's also earned a spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"I just heard about it!" she said.

As for who she'd like her star to be near on the famous stretch, she didn't name names, but she offered up one criteria.

"Someone really cool," Russell insisted. "Like much cooler than me."

Russell's own career is red hot right now. In addition to her spy series with Rhys, she's also starring alongside Matthew McConaughey in the Civil War drama "Free State of Jones."

"It's virtually untold," Russell described the tale behind the film. "(It's) based on a true, incredible story and it's just this epic historic film."

And she said McConaughey is great in the central role of complex Confederate deserter Newton Knight.

"He's not just an altruistic good guy," Russel said of Knight. "He has a lot of flaws and grit."

You can see more from Russell in "Free State of Jones," which is in theaters now.

But if you want to see Russell and Rhys together again on the small screen — outside of reruns — you'll have a bit of wait. Season 5 of "The Americans" will kick off on FX in 2017.
