It’s official: KJ Apa is a dad.

The “Riverdale” star’s model girlfriend, Clara Berry, announced that she gave birth in an Instagram post on Sunday.

“Sasha Vai Keneti Apa, born on the 23rd of September,” the proud new mom wrote. “He is a perfect perfection. I am the luckiest to have now two men of my life, filling my heart with this cosmic gigantic vast love.”

The baby’s tiny hand grips one of Berry’s fingers in the photo she posted announcing his birth.

Though Apa, 24, didn’t post anything to announce his son’s birth, he did give his girlfriend-turned-baby mama a sneaky shout-out while promoting his new album on Friday.

“@clara.berry for taking my love for you to another dimension this week,” he added while writing “thank yous” to several friends and family members.

Several of Apa’s “Riverdale” co-stars were quick to send congratulations to the couple in the comment section of Berry’s post.

Berry later posted a photo of herself and tagged her boyfriend directly over her bare belly.

“she’s pregnant btw,” Apa commented cheekily, to which Berry responded, “We are.”
