Breaking Bad stars Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston have just added a new lab partner to their bromance.
Paul announced the birth of his baby boy this week and he revealed his former co-star will be the godfather.
The actor, who played Jesse Pinkman on the hit AMC show, appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to talk about the birth of his son and what it was like to reunite with Cranston on the upcoming season of Better Call Saul.
Paul said: “His name is Ryden and I love him.”
Ryden is the second child for Paul and his wife Lauren, after their four-year-old daughter Story Annabelle.
Paul said his daughter is ‘madly in love’ with her new brother.
He said: “[She] can't squeeze him enough. Like, lays on top of him, suffocates him. It’s her doll.”
The actor also disclosed the extremely special relationship his good friend Bryan Cranston will be sharing with his newborn son.
He shared: “I asked Bryan on his birthday if he would be our baby's godfather.”
Paul joked that Cranston initially turned down the offer.
He added: “No, he's very excited, very honoured. I love the man to death. He's one of my best friends in the world, and, so yeah, it was just a no-brainer.”
We're going to take this as the cannon ending to Breaking Bad that we all wanted to see.
Paul took to Instagram to share some seriously cute photos of his new son - and it seems like Ryden already has a personality of his own.
The El Camino actor captioned the post: “My little man. Ryden Caspian Paul. So happy you are out in this world you beautiful boy you.
“I promise to make you proud little guy. We have been absorbing this baby boy for the last month and feel it’s time to finally share the news of his arrival.
“We love you endlessly.”
Earlier this month, Better Call Saul co-creator Peter Gould confirmed the return of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman to our TV screens, joining the final season of the Breaking Bad spin-off.
On a panel at PaleyFest LA, Gould said: “I don’t want to spoil things for the audience, but I will say the first question we had when we started the show was, ‘Are we gonna see Walt and Jesse on the show?’ Instead of evading, I’ll just say yeah.
“How or the circumstances or anything, you’ll just have to discover that for yourself, but I have to say that’s one of many things that I think you’ll discover this season."
Guess we’re settling in for another Breaking Bad marathon in preparation. Yeah b***h!
