By the looks of it, Penn Badgley couldn't be more in love with his little guy.

The You actor, 33, is gazing down lovingly at his 8-week-old son in a sweet photo shared by wife Domino Kirke to Instagram on Monday.

Dressed in a green-and-white striped onesie, the baby boy rests against a cushion as he peers up curiously at his dad, who is wearing a black face mask pulled down around his chin for the moment.

Kirke, 36, captioned the adorable snapshot with a simple heart emoji.

Kirke gave birth to her and Badgley's first child on Aug. 11, she announced on Instagram last month.

"His heart shaped home ❣️ #40dayspostpartum #placentaart," she shared, along with a photo of the placenta that was printed on a piece of paper.

Badgley and Kirke began dating in 2014. They married in February 2017 during a small courthouse ceremony attended by the bride's family members, including sisters Jemima Kirke and Lola Kirke.

Kirke, a singer and doula, announced her pregnancy in February, revealing that she had previously endured "two miscarriages in a row" before conceiving their baby.

The pregnancy losses left the couple feeling "ready to call it."

"I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done," wrote Kirke, who's also mom to son Cassius Riley, born in 2009. "As a birth attendant, I've seen and heard it all. It takes everything I've got to detach lovingly from the losses I've been present for and be in my own experience."

"When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing. I had no community. I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries," she said at the time. "Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have."

Kirke addressed her then-unborn child in conclusion, writing, "You're already teaching us how to stay in the day in a way we've never had to, little one. Thank you."
