Comedian and host of the popular Netflix show Patriot Act Hasan Minhaj is now the proud dad of a baby boy.

Minhaj, 34, announced the birth through a post on his Instagram yesterday, sharing a picture of himself holding his newborn son with his wife, Beena Patel. In the caption the Daily Show alum wrote, “Even in these crazy times there are so many beautiful moments. Welcome to the world little guy. The Minhaj family grows, and according to Beena it’s done growing. But ya never know, shooters shoot.”

Despite the trouble timings we all face due to coronavirus, the moment was an uplifting one for many, and several fans wished the couple well, including celebrities Priyanka Chopra, Lena Waithe, Awkwafina, Lilly Singh and Tan France of Queer Eye, who wrote in all-caps “Congratulations you guys. I’m so, so happy for you!”

The baby boy is the second child for Minhaj and Patel. The couple welcomed a daughter in April 2018, at which time Minhaj announced the news by posting a picture of his daughter’s foot to his social media, writing, “Welcome to the world baby girl. God willing I’ll be with you every step of the way…”

Congrats to the family of four!
