Nico Tortorella and Bethany C. Meyers are now a family of three! On March 5, the “Walking Dead” and “Younger” actor and the Be.come project founder welcomed their first child, later announcing their baby’s arrival on March 13 with matching Instagram posts. “IП ᄂӨVΣ ЩIƬΉ ƬΉΣ DӨVΣ,” Tortorella wrote to them. “Introducing Kilmer Dove Meyers Tortorella. welcome to earth little one.”

Meyers also shared a carousel of photos on Instagram in celebration of their baby’s birth and detailed the significance of their child’s name in the caption. “Our long awaited baby entered the world on March 5th. Everyone…meet Kilmer Dove Meyers Tortorella 🕊,” Meyers wrote. “Kilmer was my grandfather’s last name, my mother’s maiden name. Dove because Tortorella means ‘turtle dove’ and throughout our infertility journey he came to us through birds. Doves for days.”

“We wake up every day in awe that we finally hold our gift,” Meyers continued. “It was worth every tear, every heartbreak, every needle, doctor and dime. For those who are still on the journey of parenthood, I see you I love you. For those who supported us along the way thank you. We are in newborn bliss and very much in love with the dove.”

In the caption, Meyers also opened up about having a home birth, revealing that the experience was “beautiful, intense, raw, emotional, fast, safe and healthy.” The couple’s baby was “actually born in the tent, surrounded by a circle of mothers (our immaculate care team), the spirits of ancestors past and future to come,” they added. Meyers also shared a sweet selfie with their daughter on their Instagram Stories, with the caption, “sleepy happy momma.”

Tortorella and Meyers began dating in 2006 and married in 2018. The couple has been open about their pregnancy journey ever since. “We’ve been trying to conceive for almost two years and we’re happy to announce our baby finally decided the time was right,” they wrote in a statement shared with People in August 2022. “As anyone with an infertility journey will tell you, it is not easy. After months and months of heartache and not knowing we are beginning to see how much magic and healing has been provided of this process. Of course, we still have a ways to go, and we know some days will be more difficult than others. But, today is a celebration. Today we are one step closer to becoming parents. All of it is you baby .”
