Late nights are going to get a bit busier for Seth Meyers!

The Saturday Night Live alum and his wife Alexi Ashe welcomed a baby boy on Easter Sunday, his rep confirmed to People.

While the couple hasn’t revealed the name of their newborn just yet, viewers can expect all the details when Late Night with Seth Meyers returns from Easter break this Tuesday.

In the weeks leading up to the special delivery, Seth chronicled his journey to fatherhood with some clever and hilarious Instagram posts.

In fact, the comedian recently learned just how tricky it is to build a bed for a young child. “This box contains a crib. I am now going to attempt to build it,” he wrote on social media. “My wife has already scheduled for her brother to come build it tomorrow. This is my one chance to salvage my dignity!”

Spoiler alert: The crib was built and the family dog totally approved.

Throughout Alexi’s pregnancy, Seth has been able to pull off some impressive dates with his leading lady. Whether enjoying a night out at Hamilton on Broadway or traveling to Patagonia, this pair stayed close together as they eagerly waited for their first child’s arrival.

“I’m most looking forward to seeing who it looks like, that’s the first thing out of the gate,” he recently admitted to People. “Although … a lot of people have said my wife and I look alike, so I think that’s the one thing we know, is that the child will look like us. If not, there’s a real problem.”

As Seth and his wife—who just so happens to be a human rights lawyer—get used to life with a newborn, one thing is certain: There’s still going to be some laughs all around the house.

“My wife is sillier than I am so that makes me laugh a great deal. I make her laugh, too. But I also make her not laugh and that’s when I know it’s time to retire something,” Seth said during an interview with Your Tango. “I had a sense that she was the closest I’d ever met to someone who I could see myself with. Pretty much right away.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
