Mad Men star Rich Sommer and his wife Virginia welcomed the newest addition to their growing family on Tuesday, reports People magazine. 

The actor, who brilliantly plays Harry Crane on the hit AMC series is now the proud papa of a bouncing baby boy they named Patrick Ryan Sommer. He is little brother to their daughter Beatrice, 2. 

"We are loving hanging with our happy, healthy baby boy, and appreciate our family and friends joining us in celebrating this exciting time," Sommer, 32, told the magazine. "Also, he looks way better than I do in a onesie." 

Healthy Patrick weighed in at 7 lbs., 9 oz., and measured 21 inches long.

Sommer says he won't be acting like his alcohol guzzling, problem plagued character with his baby boy. 

"I'll try to remain coherent at all times so that I'm not the terrible father that welcomes his son into the world in a fog of pain and alcohol," he said. 

Sending kudos to the growing family was pal Joel McHale, who tweeted over the weekend: "Huge huge congrats 2 @richsommer of Mad Men & his family. He & his awesome wife had baby boy 2nite. Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!"
