“Pretty Little Liars” star Ian Harding and his wife Sophie Hart welcomed their first baby together.
The 36-year-old actor announced the news on his birthday Friday via social media alongside a snap of himself holding the newborn’s hand.
“Thank you for the Birthday wishes folks,” he captioned the photo. “I’m thankful for many things this past year, but most of all I’m grateful for the best early birthday present a fella could ask for.”
He didn’t show the baby’s face or comment on the baby’s sex or name. It’s unclear when they welcomed their bundle of joy.
Harding is notoriously private about his personal life.
The actor, best known for his role as teacher Ezra Fitz on the Freeform drama which ran from 2010 to 2017, secretly wed photographer Hart in 2019, but didn’t announce it until 2021.
Prior to getting married, the pair had reportedly dated for eight years.
The author has spoken about about his ambivalence to being in the spotlight in the past, telling Ability Magazine in 2020, “There are some perks of fame that I enjoy, but I’m a bad celebrity because I cannot keep stoking the fire of my own image, but maybe that’s what is required to be a big film or TV star.”
Of the sudden fame he found that he’d come into following the premiere of “Pretty Little Liards,” he added: “I didn’t know how to process becoming popular other than by being a little bit more withdrawn in public because it’s a very weird thing if people recognize you, but at the same time, you feel bad for feeling bad about it because you’re so lucky.”
Harding, who penned the 2017 memoir “Odd Birds,” has also spoken about his own childhood, alluding to how he grew up in a family that was “not perfect.”
“I didn’t want it to be a tell-all because those are fairly cheap,” he told Glamour of his book debut. “I’ve had a very good life, and not that I’ve had an easy life, but especially when it comes to family stuff, I now see what I’m really grateful for. My family was not perfect, so I wanted to focus on the stuff that I’m grateful for and that I now know and appreciate as an adult.”
