The actors, who are co-stars on U.S. TV show The Americans, are said to have welcomed their little bundle of joy sometime last week (ends27May16).

“Keri and Matt both look overjoyed and are over the moon to be new parents,” a source tells Us Weekly magazine. “They are always snapping pictures of the baby, and family and friends have been sending gifts.”

The insider claims Keri’s mother and brother have been providing in-home support to the actress too, as they have “been staying with Keri for the last week, spending all their time doting over the baby”.

Although the newborn is Matthew’s first, Keri is already mother to eight-year-old son River and four-year-old daughter Willa, her children with ex-husband Shane Deary.

Former Felicity star Keri has been dating Matthew since 2013, but the pair has chosen to keep its romance out of the spotlight over the years.

Although she managed to deflect direct questions about the status of their romance during an interview with the Los Angeles Times in 2014, the stunning 43-year-old brunette did reveal the things she loves the most about working with her 41-year-old Welsh beau.

“What I enjoy is (Rhys) makes it so easy,” she gushed to the newspaper. “You feel you’re in safe hands, and it’s enjoyable to work like that because you’re sort of like, let him do all the hard stuff.”

The couple plays married Soviet spies Philip and Elizabeth Jennings in The Americans. They met on the set of the show and sparked up a romance shortly after their introduction.
