And baby makes three!

Proud new parents Tom Arnold and his wife Ashley cuddle close to introduce their new bundle of joy — son Jax Copeland — to PEOPLE exclusively in one of their first family photos.

Snug in a striped sleeper, baby boy already seems like a natural in front of the cameras, showing off his sweet smile — and a wave!

Following the couple’s long battle with infertility, the actor and comedian’s son was born Saturday, weighing 8 lbs., 12 oz. His safe arrival prompted Arnold, 54, to tell PEOPLE that welcoming Jax was nothing short of miraculous.

“We are still in a bit of shock,” he said shortly after the delivery. “It has been a long journey and the healthy birth of our son is a miracle.”
