Aaron Paul has announced that he has asked Breaking Bad co-star Bryan Cranston to sponsor his new child.
Aaron, 42, and wife Lauren Parsekian, 35, have announced they welcomed their new boy into the world last month and are naming him Ryden Caspian Paul.
He is the second child for the couple, with whom they already share four-year-old daughter Story.
Aaron told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon how Story loves being a big sister. He said: “She’s madly in love with him, can’t hug him enough. Wie lies down on him, suffocates him. It’s her doll.”
And he also revealed that Bryan, 66, is godfather to the newest member of the family.
He continued: “He [Bryan] hit the baby. I asked Bryan on his birthday to sponsor our baby.”
Aaron then joked about how Bryan turned down the offer, but was quick to admit how Bryan actually felt about the question.
He added: “He’s very excited, very honored. I love the man to death, he’s one of my best friends in the world and it’s a no-brainer.”
Aaron first revealed in December that wife Lauren was pregnant with their second child.
In a sweet snap of her with the little story touching her mum’s tummy, he wrote: “Love you so much already little one. I can’t wait to meet you number 2.”
On Wednesday, Aaron shared a picture of Ryden from the day he was born.
He captioned the picture: “My little man. Ryden Caspian Paul. So happy to be in this world you beautiful boy you.
“I promise to make you proud, little fella. We have been absorbing this little boy for the last month and feel it is time to finally share the news of his arrival. We love you endlessly.”
Followers were quick to send good wishes in the comments section.
