KJ, 24, has not yet commented publicly on the birth of his son.

Back in May, he and Clara took to social media to share they were going to be a family of three!


The model posted a collage of maternity photos on her Instagram page and adorably cradled her growing baby bump. Clara kept her caption simple by using a chef and frying pan emoji, to sweetly suggest she was cooking something.

For those who didn't quite get the message, KJ commented, "She's pregnant btw."

The couple's baby news comes over a year after they confirmed their relationship in February 2020. At the time, the CW star posted a PDA-filled photo of himself and Clara kissing, along with the caption, "Coup de foudre (Love at first sight)."

The rest, as they say, is history!
