Dushku included a photo of Palandjian holding their son as though he were Simba in The Lion King. Baby Philip can be seen wearing an adorable pair of pants with a lion on the back. She paired the pants with a white shirt, though it's unclear from the photo if there was anything printed on them.

She hasn't yet shared a photo showing her son's face. She may do so in time, but hasn't spoken much about it.

The comments were overwhelmingly positive, including one from Palandjian.

"Mother & wife goddess & always best friend, Thank you my love," he wrote, adding a red heart. "for our beautiful boy Bourne!"

Other comments came from friends and fans.

"OMYGODDDDDD," one fan wrote.

"Yes!!!!! Yipeee! So Happy for You!!!" another Instagram user added.

"Congrats!!" a third person added on Instagram.

"Congratulations. Hope everyone is doing well," another person chimed in.

Before welcoming her baby boy, Dushku shared a photo of herself and Palandjian. Her husband appeared to be cradling her bump while kissing her on the cheek. She wrote, "t-minus just a few more days 'til he's due.."

Palandjian posted the same photo on his Instagram account, which is private, according to E! Online.

"Mother (very soon-to-be) & wife goddess & always best friend & my love," he captioned the image.

Dushku announced that she and Palandjian were expecting a child in February. They shared the big news with Us Weekly.

"We're just very excited," the actress told the magazine of being pregnant. "We just got married in August. It's a special year for us."


Her pregnancy was well-documented. In June, she celebrated her husband's abilities as a father. Although Philip is the first child for Dushku and Palandjian, it's not the 55-year-old's first child. He has four kids from a previous relationship.

"I'm entirely obsessed with my beautiful [husband] / [babys daddy] heading into this Father's Day [weekend]," she wrote on Instagram.
