Gunner was born 6 pounds, 12 ounces, and was 19 inches long, People magazine confirmed. He is the couple's first child.

Immediately after announcing his new son's name on social media, Pratt made sure to give a shout-out to a company that apparently gave the new parents an interesting birthing present:

A little later on, he also expressed his fond wish for the new child, though the meaning is a little unclear:

As for mom, well, for obvious reasons her social account has been a little quieter. In September she did share with TODAY a little reasoning behind the choosing of Gunner's name, noting, "I think it’s original and it’s classic. So, some people will have heard of it, but I think it will fit well. I love it. I didn’t want to go too over the top. I know Spencer liked a much flashier name, so we’ve certainly come to a middle ground."

Crystals aside, we are sure they have. Congratulations, you two!
