Update: Zachery confirms to us via Twitter that his girls' names are Gemma Rae and Taylor Simone, and their birthday is June 23. Beautiful!

Original Story, July 2:

Well, here's a big baby announcement that just slipped through the cracks: Home Improvement alum Zachery Ty Bryan is a dad! The lucky mama is his wife, Carly Matros, whom he married in 2007.


Details are limited as of now, but we've pieced a few things together. Zachery, now 32, said on the Fox News segment L.A. Loaded in early June that he and his wife were expecting twins. "I have twin girls on the way," he said, laughing, after firing pistols with a Navy SEAL, "so I think I need to start loading up the weapons here sooner rather than later."

Then, on June 23, Zach confirmed that he's now a father via Twitter. So there you have it: twin girls, born sometime in June!

Zachery and Carly met while attending fifth grade together, but only started dating once they reached adulthood. They got engaged in 2005, at ages 24 and 23, respectively.

Speaking of Zachery and dads, when we last spotted this blast from the past he was thanking his Home Improvement TV dad Tim Allen (a.k.a. Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor) as part of a Father's Day series for Made Man last month. "Most kids think their dad is a tool," he joked in the video, "but my tv dad was the Tool Man!"

Other valuable sentiments from that video: He has "no regrets" about his character's mullet… and "f—k Al." Seems legit.

Congrats, Zachery! We're glad you have such a vast well — a whole eight seasons — of fatherly wisdom to draw from.
