McKidd — whose divorce from ex-wife Jane Parker was finalized in December 2017 after 17 years of marriage, following their separation in 2015 — announced he had married Goldrath, a private chef, in March 2018.

The Scottish-born actor also revealed they had a little one on the way at that time, writing on his website that “Arielle and I are so happy to announce our marriage and new baby, who is soon to join our growing family,” in a post titled, “Very Happy, Very Big News!”

He shared that “close friends and family came together with my Grey’s family to share in our celebration day — an intimate, low key gathering culminating in a Scottish Ceilidh dance.”

McKidd concluded, “There’s much to be grateful for and we’re thrilled for the adventures 2018 will bring us all!”

Aiden arrived in May of last year — on Mother’s Day of all days! — when the proud father captioned a black-and-white photo of Goldrath cuddling with their newborn, “On this beautiful Mother’s Day evening … “

“Welcome little Aiden to our family and to the world!” McKidd continued. “Arielle, you’re the most amazing mother and I love you both so much!”

McKidd, who plays former U.S. Army trauma surgeon Owen Hunt, joined Grey’s Anatomy during its fifth season as a love interest for Sandra Oh‘s Cristina Yang.

Though their characters married, they divorced before Oh, 48, left the show. Hunt then went on to marry Amelia Shepherd, portrayed by Caterina Scorsone, but they split in season 14.
