Franco and Scartabello shared the happy news of their child’s birth on Instagram, and Franco also posted about it on his Twitter account, writing, “And then there were three…. Our world has forever changed!” He added that the baby was born on January 6.
The announcement came with a black and white photo of Franco and Scartabello holding their newborn baby’s hand. The couple has not revealed the baby’s name. However, they shared last year that they were expecting a boy. Not long before the birth announcement, Franco posted photos of himself in the delivery room.
Franco and Scartabello tied the knot in 2019. They met while they were both students at the University of Rhode Island and started dating in 2011. At the time of their wedding, Scartabello told People that they were “always laughing.”
