The cat's out of the bag: Charlie Cox is a father!

E! News has learned the Daredevil star and longtime love Samantha Thomas recently welcomed their first child together. Cox confirmed the exciting news during a Marvel Facebook Livestream, in which Luke Cage star Mike Colter congratulated the "proud new dad." Charlie nodded in agreement, telling Colter, "I haven't finished [watching] your show yet, but you know I have a reason."

How's that for a well-deserved congratulations?! 

Notoriously tight-lipped about his personal life, Cox made the surprise announcement that he'd be expecting a little one in the near future back in early September. During a Fan Expo in Canada, the 33-year-old nonchalantly opened up about the exciting news. 

"My girlfriend [was] pretty amused when I said I was going to Toronto a couple weeks beforehand, by the way. And I went, 'So, keep your legs closed," the British hunk told moderator and Marvel Entertainment chief creative officer Joe Quesada

The new parents owe much of their professional success to Marvel, as Thomas works on both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Jessica Jones while Cox is set to return as Daredevil's titular character in its upcoming third season. 

Congratulations again, you two!
