Rider Strong Is a Dad! Boy Meets World Star Welcomes First Son

Shawn Hunter is officially all grown up: Boy Meets World star Rider Strong welcomed his first child — a baby boy — back on Sunday, December 28, 2014. We had no idea Rider's wife, Alexandra Barreto, was even pregnant! See, it is possible to keep a secret in Hollywood.

Rider's rep recently confirmed the happy news with E! News. The rep didn't spill much about the new baby, but we do know that it's a boy, and his name is Indigo "Indy" Baretto Strong. We love the moniker — it's unique and different without being too bizarre. Good choice, Rider and Alexandra!

Unique definitely seems to be a theme in this happy couple's life. Not only did they keep this pregnancy on the total DL — something of a rarity amongst stars — but when they tied the knot back in December 2013, they did it in the most original way: with a summer camp themed wedding! There was a ropes course, a talent show, and even bunk beds for the guests.

You know what? We have a feeling that little Indy is in for some awesome birthday parties in the future!

Are you excited for Rider? Surprised he and his wife kept the pregnancy a secret? Let us know in the comments below!
