Riverdale star KJ Apa has welcomed his first child with model girlfriend Clara Berry.

The model took to Instagram to announce the arrival of the couple’s son, who was born on September 23.

She also revealed the baby boy’s name, part of which he inherited from his dad.

“Sasha Vai Keneti Apa, born on the 23rd of September,” Clara wrote alongside a picture of tiny newborn fingers. “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.”

KJ stands for Keneti James, making for an adorable link between father and son.

The actor shared Clara’s post on his Instagram story, later uploading a video in which he revealed his debut album was released the same day his son was born.

“He’s doing good, Clara’s doing amazing,” he said, thanking fans for their support.

The album release comes after years of KJ singing as Archie Andrews on the hit teen drama.

Looks like he’s been having a busy week with plenty of congratulations in order!
