iCarly Star Nathan Kress, Wife London Welcome First Child

It's a girl!

Christmas came early for Nathan Kress and his wife, London Elise, who welcomed their first child, daughter Rosie Carolyn, on Thursday, Dec. 21, 2017. The former iCarly star took to Instagram on Friday to announce the exciting news.

"Rosie Carolyn Kress, born 12/21/17 at 3:59pm. 6 lbs, 6 ounces of utter joy," the new dad captioned sweet snapshots of his little bundle of joy. "Mom and baby are doing amazing. I am an emotional wreck. In the good way!" He also included lyrics from Switchfoot's "Always." 

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Nathan, 25, and London, 25, who married in November 2015, announced they were expecting their first child together in July 2017. 

The former child star posted a photo of the cute couple in London, using a clever play on words to surprise fans with the good news. "Me and my baby in London. Me, and my baby in London. Me. 👨 And my baby 👶 IN —>LONDON 👧🏼," he wrote, adding, "Mommy and daddy are thrilled to announce Baby Kress, arriving January 2018."

London also announced her pregnancy on social media, sharing a photo of herself with her husband. "I put my barf bag down for this photo," she wrote in the caption, which included the hashtags, "#seriouslySOexcited ❤️😍#weloveoursweetbabyKress #completelyworthit #secondtrimesterherewecome."

In August, the married pair announced they were expecting a baby girl. "You can find me on my porch, in my rocking chair, polishing my shotgun, for the next 18 to 40 years," Nathan jokingly captioned a goofy pic of he and his wife holding a balloon that read, "It's a baby girl." Meanwhile, London posted a similar photo, writing, "Our sweet baby girl is officially on the way!!!"

The soon-to-be mom also updated fans on how she and her baby were doing around that time. "Believe me, there has been no shortage of eating or malnutrition for me or baby girl," she wrote. "I know some may have seemed concerned about my size/baby's size in my mid-pregnancy photo, but I hope this helps ease some minds....It doesn't matter what size each of us are, pregnant or not, as long as we're taking care of our bodies."

Congratulations to the happy couple! While we wait for more baby news from Kress, read up on the strangest celeb baby announcements.
