Landon Donovan just made a life goal: He’s a dad!

The retired soccer player announced the birth of his first child with wife Hannah Bartell on social media Wednesday.

“The greatest joy and most love I’ve ever experienced. Welcome to the world Talon Bartell Donovan,” Donovan, 33, tweeted along with a family photo featuring his newborn baby boy.

In a separate post on Facebook, Donovan writes, “I’ve been fortunate to achieve a lot of wonderful things in my life, but nothing comes close to being a father.”

In December, Donovan gave his followers the first official glimpse at his son, sharing an ultrasound picture of his baby on the way.

“That’s a strong looking spine! 6 weeks away from the next chapter in life,” he captioned the image.

Four months after Donovan and Bartell tied the knot in Mission Bay, California, the former forward for the United States men’s national team surprised his fans with a fun photo of three pairs of shoes on Instagram.

“Been keeping a secret for months now. Daddy flipflops, mommy flipflops  … baby flipflops,” he captioned the picture.
