Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul Welcomes First Child

Aaron Paul starred as the lovable rouge Jesse Pinkman in the hit series Breaking Bad. While Jesse couldn't seem to catch a break, everything is coming up roses for Paul.

This weekend the 38-year-old actor and his wife Lauren welcomed their first child, sharing pictures of the adorable tot with their social media following, according to E News.

Lauren took to Instagram to proudly announce her newborn daughter, captioning a hospital snap, "There are no words that will ever be able to explain what just happened to my heart." The couple wed in 2013 after dating for just over a year, following their chance encounter at Coachella. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! recently, Paul expressed his happiness at becoming a father, stating that he was "over the moon excited." "I love babies. I have always loved babies." He went on to state that they had hired a doula to assist with the delivery of the child, who had some sage words to share with the actor. "She's just telling me what not to do," Paul told Kimmel. "She goes, 'Just prepare yourself. I've helped deliver over 600 babies and 100 percent the mother of the baby who's delivering absolutely hates her partner." In a welcome surprise, Jimmy then presented Paul with a gift for his firstborn child - a miniature baby meth suit, in pink, of course.

While Paul appeared in several small parts prior to Breaking Bad, it was the show that catapulted him to fame. Originally, creator Vince Gilligan had plans to kill off the character in the first season, but the chemistry between Paul and lead actor Bryan Cranston was so electric he decided to keep Jesse on as a main character. Since the series ended in 2013, he has gone on to star in several feature-length movies, including Need for Speed. You can catch him in the upcoming movie The Burning Woman and as Eddie Lane in the Hulu series, The Path.
