‘Drake & Josh’ Star Josh Peck Just Welcomed a Baby With Wife Paige O’Brien
Josh Peck ended 2018 on a definite high note. The Drake & Josh star announced on Monday, December 31, that his wife, Paige O’Brien, had given birth to their first child, a baby boy they named Max Milo Peck.
The proud dad took to Instagram to share a photo of his newborn son swaddled in a hospital blanket, which he captioned with just Max’s name. O’Brien shared the same picture, along with a sweet snap of the little one sucking on a pacifier and wearing a white hat.
According to People, he was born on Saturday, December 29, in Los Angeles.
Peck and O’Brien first announced they were expecting back in August. At the time, Peck posted a photo of himself and his wife, joking, “Oh baby. Literally, there’s a baby in there.” He also tweeted the news to his followers, quipping, “Guys I did it! I’m finally down to my goal weight! Oh and we’re pregnant.”
The news came a little more than a year after the couple’s June 2017 wedding, which included celeb guests such as John Stamos, Peck’s Grandfathered costar, who recently welcomed a baby boy of his own with Caitlin McHugh.
“Stamos is already crushing fatherhood. No joke,” Peck told Entertainment Tonight in August, shortly after the former Nickelodeon star announced his wife’s pregnancy. “Can you imagine John Stamos changing a diaper? I mean, that baby is lucky. But his son, Billy, is gorgeous and if I can get anything quite like that, I’ll be overpaid.”
Congratulations to the growing family!
