The 33-year-old actor also shared the emotional moment to Instagram, where he penned a heartfelt letter to his future son in the caption.

"Dear son, this was such a massively profound moment for us… and clearly it hit me hard. But thats ok, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about… in fact emotions are to be celebrated! Tears are good!" Baldoni wrote. "It’s hard to explain, but I feel like my entire life has been about getting ready for this experience and yet at the same time I feel completely inept and not ready to be a dad again. I’ve learned so much and made so many mistakes and I continue to make them…EVERY DAY!"

The excited star went on to explain that he's excited to show his children "all my imperfections," and to teach his son that "part of being a man is embracing the parts of yourself that you might be ashamed or embarrassed of. And that eventually, the side of us that we want to hide from the world will be the side that our future life partner will love more than anything."

"I want you to know that while confidence might be important for success, humility is necessary for happiness. I hope to show you over the course of your life, to not only respect women, but to stand up, and empower them in both large and small ways. When no one is watching and there's no reward," he continued. "To be a true friend to train your eyes like a superpower to see women as humans with souls before you see them as objects."

Dear son, This was such a massively profound moment for us… and clearly it hit me hard. But thats ok, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about… in fact emotions are to be celebrated! Tears are good! It’s hard to explain, but I feel like my entire life has been about getting ready for this experience and yet at the same time I feel completely inept and not ready to be a dad again. I’ve learned so much and made so many mistakes and I continue to make them…EVERY DAY! But the more I think about being a father to a you, the more I'm excited to show you and your sister all my imperfections. All the reasons why I don’t know everything or don’t have answers to every problem. To show you that part of being a man is embracing the parts of yourself that you might be ashamed or embarrassed of. And that eventually, the side of us that we want to hide from the world will be the side that our future life partner will love more than anything. I want you to know that while confidence might be important for success, humility is necessary for happiness. I hope to show you over the course of your life, to not only respect women, but to stand up, and empower them in both large and small ways. When no one is watching and there's no reward. To be a true friend to train your eyes like a superpower to see women as humans with souls before you see’s them as objects. I haven’t always been good at this. I fail all the time, and like many men, my lower nature is strong as I’m sure yours will be… but we are only responsible for what we know and I can’t wait to start to try to teach you through my actions what I think it means to be a man today. The best part.. failing is not just a part of the curriculum… it’s necessary. So yeah… thats why I got so emotional my dear son. I can’t wait for you to see this one day and see all the reasons why your daddy was so excited you were going to be born into this crazy, dark, complicated world to a family that is going to love the shit out of you. I might not know you yet little guy, but I am already madly in love with you. I can’t wait to meet you and just know that I am only a few inches a way and I’m praying for you every day. Love, Daddy. #dearson
