It’s a boy!

Actress KaDee Strickland and her husband Jason Behr, 39, welcomed their first child, son Atticus, on Thursday, Oct. 17, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

The couple welcomed their baby boy into the world during an “intimate birth in their Los Angeles home with the assistance and care of midwives and a doula.”
