Will Schuester is officially a dad.

Over the weekend, Glee's Matthew Morrison announced that his wife, Renee Puente, gave birth to a son, named Revel James Makai Morrison. (Sorry, Glee fans, his name is not Daniel Finn.) Both mom and dad have already posted pictures of newborn Revel to Instagram. Morrison shared a heart-melting black-and-white snap of himself fist-bumping his first-born son. "To my Newborn Child, Revel James Makai Morrison: Your Mama and Papa got this!! We love you, and are so thankful for your arrival! The adventures are just beginning," he wrote. "Trust in us to guide and protect you always. To lay the tracks so your choo choo train will run smoothly throughout this world🚂. You will have all the tools to soar!"

Puente also shared a long, touching post, this time paired with a full-body shot of the little baby. "My Revel James Makai Morrison, I promise to cherish you, to constantly remind you that you are worthy of love and belonging, to teach you compassion and kindness," she wrote.

Morrison and Puente were engaged in 2013, when Elton John and David Furnish announced it to the world at the White Tie and Tiara Ball in London—after which Elton John and Chris Martin serenaded the couple with a rendition of "Your Song." The couple was then married in 2014 at a private estate on the island of Maui. Of course, the wedding was not short on musical performances; pianist Chad Whidden and soloist Kiley Dean sang "Feels Like Home" while the bride walked down the aisle. The happy couple later sang a duet of Laura Benanti's "Starry Eyed/Video Games."

One thing's for sure: With Mr. Schue as his dad, Revel is sure to start his music education early. Congrats to the new parents!
