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.
