Congratulations are in order for PEN15 star Maya Erskine and This is Us actor Michael Angarano, who have welcomed their first child into the world.
The birth of their son, Leon Frederick, was announced in rather an unusual way, and hasn’t been addressed in a statement or Instagram post at the time of writing.
Maya was interviewed by Variety alongside her co-star and friend Anna Konkle, about both being pregnant at the same time and during the pandemic.
Right at the end of the piece, a small note by the writer states: “Not long after our interview, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Leon Frederick.”
Maya, who announced her pregnancy back in November, revealed in this new interview that: “I found out [I was pregnant] at Michael’s parents house in late July.
“I told Anna once I went to the doctor to confirm, so I think that was August. I had told her that Michael and I were going to start trying, and then told her [I was expecting] in person, socially distanced at a park, and then told all our friends in the ocean as a wave overtook us — again, socially distanced at the beach. It was very dramatic.”
Meanwhile, Anna welcomed her daughter Essie Wunderle Anfanger earlier this year, and explained that the middle name comes from the strong women on her father’s side of the family.
PEN15 airs on Hulu in the US and Sky Comedy and NOW in the UK. The second half of season 2 currently does not have a broadcast date.
