The 33-year-old former Los Angeles Galaxy star shared the joyous news on social media, along with a photo of himself and his wife cradling their newborn son.
"The greatest joy and most love I've ever experienced," Donovan captioned the heartwarming pic. "Welcome to the world Talon Bartell Donovan."
The greatest joy and most love I've ever experienced. Welcome to the world Talon Bartell Donovan ❤️💛💚 pic.twitter.com/jbzYwsuG0z— Landon Donovan (@landondonovan) January 27, 2016
With a name like Talon, the kid is destined to be a sports icon just like her proud papa -- or maybe an action movie star.
Donovan shared the same pic on Instagram, but with a different caption, writing, "I've been fortunate to achieve a lot of wonderful things in my life but nothing comes close to being a father."
Donavan and Bartell, who tied the knot in May 2015, announced that they were expecting in September with a super-cute snapshot showing three pairs of flip flops, including a set for a small child.
"Been keeping a secret for months now. Daddy flipflops, mommy flipflops… baby flipflops," Donovan wrote in the caption.
Congrats to the happy couple!
