Penn Badgley shares his joyful experience as a father

Last fall, the 34-year-old actor and his wife, Domino Kirke, had announced that they welcomed their first child together, a baby boy. Although the couple is notorious for keeping their personal lives out of the spotlight, the You star shared a rare glimpse into his new role as a dad during an interview on SiriusXM's The Jess Cagle Show recently. When asked how Penn and his wife of four years have navigated parenthood amid the ongoing pandemic, he admitted, "It was a lot. I think the great bounty that we got out of it is...I have a stepson who's 12 and his experience was, in a sense, different. Because they're so social at that age," the Gossip Girl alum explained. "But our baby, he's chilling." He added, "He's very happy and joyful. And we had an opportunity to be with him in a way that we wouldn't have. So that is a strange blessing in it all." The actor, who has yet to publicly share additional details about his little one’s name, recently utilised his experience as a new dad for the small screen.
