Not long after "Nikita" ended (with a perfect series finale), Devon Sawa began a new mission: fatherhood.

The "Nikita" star welcomed his first child with his wife Dawni on Thursday, Jan. 9, People reports.

Their newborn son Hudson is "8 lbs., 1 oz. of pure love," Sawa says. "The most amazing week ever."

The details were kept secret until Thursday (Jan. 16), when Sawa tweeted out the exciting news. 

"I love him," Sawa writes. "He's my little pride and joy."

His wife adds, "My sweet angel."

Congratulations to the new parents. We're impressed they could keep the news under wraps for an entire week, which is no small feat in this day and age.
