‘Riverdale’ Star KJ Apa Welcomes First Child with Model Clara Berry (& the Photo Is Too Sweet)

Congrats are in order for Riverdale star KJ Apa!

The 24-year-old actor has been in a relationship with French model Clara Berry since 2020 and now, the couple just revealed that they've welcomed their first child.

Berry shared the news on her Instagram account, where she posted a photo of their newborn son resting his hand on her finger. In the caption, she revealed the baby's name along with the date of his birth, saying, “Sasha Vai Keneti Apa, born on the 23rd of September. He is a perfect perfection.” Evidently, the couple decided to pass on KJ Apa's first name, “Keneti,” to the newborn.

In the rest of her caption, Berry said, “I am the luckiest to have now two men of my life, filling my heart with this cosmic gigantic vast love.” Fittingly, a smiley face that Berry has tattooed on her middle finger was also visible in the photo.

Fellow celebs sent their love to Berry, like Eden Fines, who said, “Congratulations my love!!!!!” Tallulah Willis commented, “AHHHHHH MY PETIT PRINCE!!!” And she also added, “I adore you!!!!”

The couple first announced the pregnancy back in May, when Apa and Berry each posted vintage-looking baby bump photos on their accounts. Berry posted a slideshow showing off the bump and she captioned the photos with an emoji of an egg in a frying pan. She also tagged Apa on her stomach.

Meanwhile, Apa posted a photo from the same day where he is seen lounging on the couch with Berry.

We can't wait for more pictures of baby Sasha.
