And just like that, Jonathan Tucker is a father of two.

The former Kingdom actor, 36, and wife Tara welcomed their first and second children on Tuesday, the couple told ET on Friday.

The baby boy, named Hayes Taj, and baby girl, named India Moss, were born in Los Angeles. “.25 catholic .25 jewish .25 muslim .25 hindu⁣ ⁣⁣ this is america. women are heroes. god is good,” the proud dad wrote on Instagram Saturday.

“We cannot believe our good fortune,” Tucker said. His rep added, “Mother and father are over the moon.”

Tucker shared the couple’s double-bundle-of-joy news on Instagram in April, posting a photo of himself surrounded by baby products.

With a sheepish look on his face, the then-dad-to-be was backed by double cribs (both currently occupied by the couple’s dogs) and items like DockATots, 4moms Breeze playards, mamaRoos, a Thule double stroller, Baby Tula carriers, Wash with Water skincare products and Comotomo bottles.

“This is not an ad. This is real life,” Tucker joked in the adorable snapshot’s caption.
