Kenan Thompson, Christina Evangeline

Greg Tidwell,

Here's your "SNL Weekend Update": Kenan Thompson is a dad!

The 36-year-old Saturday Night Live star's wife, model Christina Evangeline, gave birth to a baby girl on Friday, the actor's rep told E! News on Sunday, June 22. This is the first child for the couple, who wed in 2011.

"Kenan and his wife Christina welcomed daughter Georgia into the world at 6 1/2 pounds," the spokesperson said. "The family is home and absolutely blessed."

The newborn's name hits close to home—Thompson was born and raised in Atlanta.

Thompson revealed his wife's pregnancy earlier this year, joking on Late Night With Seth Meyers that he was "terrified."

"I'm about to be a daddy!," he said. "That's right, Papa Kenan."
