Colin Hanks is a dad once again, with his wife Samantha Bryant giving birth to their baby girl earlier this week. The 35-year-old actor told People magazine the good news on Tuesday (July 2), releasing a statement that read, “Ms. Charlotte Bryant Hanks has decided to join us. She’s as happy and healthy as we are overjoyed and tired.”
Congratulations to Colin and Samantha
The husband and wife have been together for some years and got married in 2010, having their first child a year later. The former Dexter star already has a daughter, 2-year-old Olivia Jane, and had kept their second pregnancy under wraps for some time, with Bryant only announcing the pregnancy in April. She was spotted sneaking out of a showing of Tom Hanks' - Colin's father - Broadway play Lucky Guy and was asked about her expanding waistline by a paparazzo.
This is Colin's second child
That particular show comes to an end this week, so the timing couldn't be better for the happy grandma and grandpa and we're sure Tom and his wife Rita Stewart cannot wait to spend some quality time with their latest grandchild. At least, that's what Colin is hoping, as he went on to joke with People, “They cannot wait to just dote on this kid with every single fiber of their being. My wife and I are more than happy to give them our baby and say, ‘Here, watch her while we take a nap!’”
A big congratulations to the new mother and father and another congrats to the happy grandparents too. Have fun looking after her!
Hanks is one happy granddaddy
