Jessie Godderz is familiar with Big Brother, but now the actor and pro wrestler is embracing being a dad.

“I couldn’t be happier,” Godderz, 31, tells EW of welcoming son Lucas Princeton. “I now fully understand what the expression ‘beaming with pride’ means. Whenever I look at him, I am overwhelmed with love and devotion. He has my unconditional love and support forever. He truly is my world.”

Godderz shared a birth announcement on his social media accounts Saturday. He is keeping his son’s actual birth date and the identity of the mother private, but he shares that Lucas Princeton — nicknamed Prince — weighed 8 lbs., 6 oz., and measured 22¼ in. long at time of birth.
