The “Welcome Home” actor and his partner have been married for almost a decade and are parents to a daughter, Story Anabelle.
In a recent interview, the happy father announced that he is now a boy dad and revealed juicy details surrounding the newborn.
Aaron Paul Gushes About Baby Number Two
On Tuesday, April 19, Aaron appeared on a memorable episode of Jimmy Kimmel’s eponymous late-night talk show to fawn over his newborn son.
The host congratulated his guest on the arrival of the “brand new” addition to his family. The proud father replied, “Yes, a new baby boy. Yeah, his name is Rydin, and I love him.”
The “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” actor showed off adorable photos of the newborn. He added that his daughter is also madly in love with the baby and considers him her doll.
Kimmel asked if Aaron’s “Breaking Bad” co-star and good friend Bryan Cranston had met Rydin, leading the actor to reveal a surprise about his castmate. He said:
“He [Cranston] has. He has met the baby. You know, I asked Bryan on his birthday if he would be our baby’s godfather.”
The “Need For Speed” star joked that his buddy rejected his request and immediately clarified that it was not the case. Cranston was “very excited” to take on the role.
Aaron, who starred alongside his co-star on the critically-acclaimed “Breaking Bad” series from 2008 to 2013, sweetly buttressed that he is very honored to give Cranston the role and loves him to death.
The “NCIS” actress posted a photo of Story touching her visible baby bump while looking down at her mother’s womb.
Lauren glowed in the image while her belly bulged under her sweatshirt. She smiled warmly at her three-year-old and expressed the family’s excitement to herald Rydin under her post.
The caption read, “We can’t wait to meet you, baby! We love you so much already,” with a heart and a hatched chick emoji that gave no hints at the gender.
Aaron previously expressed his burning desire for another child in a 2020 interview with Haute Living. The loving patriarch called fatherhood the closest thing anyone can have to a magic rush.
The “Welcome Home” actor credited fatherhood for changing him, adding that he never wants to miss a second of being with his offspring.
Aaron considers being a dad the best chapter of his life. He emphasized that he “can’t wait to have another baby” and is excited to see what his 40s offer.
The “Westworld” star took the pressure off Lauren by noting that life was good for him as it was. Life must be even better for him now that his dreams are a reality.
The “Better Call Saul” Star Talks He And Bryan Cranston’s Series Cameo
The godfather of Aaron’s son is joining the cast of “Better Call Saul” along with him to reprise their roles from “Breaking Bad” as Jesse Pinkman and Walter White.
The father-of-two gushed to the Hollywood Reporter that their appearances are nothing short of “perfect,” but the news of their casting was a surprise to him. He explained:
“So I didn’t see that coming. But to be honest, I’m happy to be able to finally talk about it and not be squirrelly. It’s nice to be able to be open about it. So I’m excited.”
As “Better Call Saul” begins its sixth and last season, speculations have spread that the best friends would make a cameo on the series.
Aaron gushed that both fans of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul” have been expecting his and Cranston’s comeback amid the arrival of other castmates of the prequel.
Aaron said that he and Cranston would join the plot unexpectedly, adding that it would be fun and fans of the program would be excited. He continued:
“To be honest, I’m such a fan of Better Call Saul that I just didn’t initially see how they were going to do it. But of course, leave it to [creators] Vince [Gilligan] and Peter [Gould] and the rest of the writers to come up with the perfect way.
