Keri Russell has a lot of exciting news to share these days. The Americans actress recently gave birth to her first baby with her FX show's costar, Matthew Rhys, but she didn't reveal until Friday that the couple had a baby boy. And for the Russell fans who have followed the actress from her early Disney career, to Felicity (who can forget that Felicity Porter followed her high school crush to college?), to present-day, you're probably excited to hear about her growing family. So, what is Russell's son's name? The 40-year-old actress revealed her baby boy's name is Sam.
In an interview with NBC TODAY, Russell shared information about her "big and fat and nice" newborn boy.
"We had a boy," Russell said, according to NBC. "He's so good, he's big and fat and nice." The actress also added that Rhys, 41, has been doing "so well" since the baby's arrival.
In an interview with The New York Times, Russell shared what it was like being pregnant while filming for The Americans. Her pregnancy was not incorporated into the show's plot, so apparently, The Americans crew got pretty creative when it came to hiding her pregnancy bump.
The Americans, premiered in 2013 and created by Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields, follows two soviet spies who pose as a married couple, Elizabeth Jennings (Russell) and Phillip Jennings (Rhys), who are living in the D.C-area and spying on the United States government during the Reagan era.
In an interview with Variety, FX original programming president, Eric Schrier, credited the show's success to the creators and talented actors, like Russell and Rhys.
Russell also has two other children, a son River and daughter Willa, from her previous marriage with Shane Deary. And now they're big brother and sister to baby Sam.
