PEN15 star Maya Erskine and fiancé Michael Angarano have welcomed their first child together, a son named Leon Frederick. Erskine, who turned 34 Friday, opened up about her pregnancy journey in a joint Vogue interview with her PEN15 co-star Anna Konkle published on her birthday. The longtime friends had overlapping pregnancies. "I found out at Michael's parents house in late July," she told the outlet. "I told Anna once I went to the doctor to confirm, so I think that was August." The outlet, which was first to report the news of Erskine welcoming Leon, mentioned that not long after their interview with Erskine, she gave birth to her son. After Vogue's interview was published Friday, Konkle, 34, called Erskine an "amazing mama," wishing her costar a happy birthday. RELATED GALLERY: Who's Due Next? Celebs Who Are Expecting In the Vogue interview, Erskine said she told Konkle that she and Angarano, 33, "were going to start trying, before excitedly telling her the pregnancy news in person." "[I] told her in person, socially distanced at a park, and then told all our friends in the ocean as a wave overtook us—again, socially distanced at the beach. It was very dramatic," the new mom joked. The pair announced both their engagement and pregnancy publicly back in early November. Right before Election Day, Erskine, wrote on Instagram, "When 2 becomes 3 😍👼 And please vote. #bidenharris2020," alongside a pic of herself modeling her baby bump alongside Angarano. The Sky High actor, at the time, also shared a photo of himself cradling her stomach, captioning it, "and then there were 3... also, we're engaged."

The new mom opened up to The Hollywood Reporter back in June 2019 about casting her real-life mother as her on-screen parent in the Hulu Original series. "I was surprised by how game she was for it. I think she is at a point in her life where she just is not self-conscious," said Erskine at the time, adding, "It started out as a joke. But she just has this level of authenticity. I was blown away by her professionalism — she hit her mark, she would say her lines. It was pretty wild to see her in that environment. And I think it was wild for her to see me in this role. For her to see me be a boss on set — that was a really new experience for her."
