Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is officially a father again. Appearing on The Tonight Show on Tuesday night, Paul revealed to host Jimmy Fallon and all of his viewers that the actor and his wife Lauren had just welcomed their second baby together, a boy named Ryden. The couple, who married in 2013, also have a 4-year-old daughter, Story Annabelle, who Paul says is “madly in love” with her younger sibling.
The announcement was not a surprise to Paul’s Breaking Bad co-star, Bryan Cranston, who has already visited Ryden in person. In fact, Paul says Cranston is Ryden’s godfather as well. After joking that Cranston initially turned down the offer to be Ryden’s godfather, Paul clarifies that the Heisenberg actor is actually “very excited” about the opportunity. As Paul explains:
“No, he’s very excited, very honored. I love the man to death. He’s one of my best friends in the world, and, so yeah, it was just a no-brainer.”
Paul and Cranston first hit it off when the two were cast as co-stars in the hit AMC drama series Breaking Bad, which ran from 2008 to 2013. In the show, Paul plays Jesse Pinkman, a former student of Cranston’s Walter White, a high school chemistry teacher who turns to cooking meth to pay his cancer treatment costs. Partly due to the two actors’ chemistry, the show took off, ultimately becoming one of the most acclaimed television series of all time. They later reunited for the Netflix movie spinoff El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie.
