Congratulations are in order for Rob Delaney and Leah Delaney! The Catastrophe star and his loving wife welcomed their fourth child, a baby boy in August, seven months after their son, Henry died at the age of 2 from brain cancer.
The actor, 41, shared the good news during an interview with The Sunday Times Magazine.
In the article published by the publication on Sunday, December 30, he said, "We likely would’ve had a fourth anyway. But I mean, there’s mixed feelings."
The actor added, "It’s sort of like they touch each other a little bit, they exist in separate lanes. Having another child in no way, shape or form eases the grief of Henry dying."
