Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and his wife Vanessa Nadal have welcomed into the world their second baby, a boy named Francisco.

The announcement came via Miranda’s Twitter on Friday afternoon.

Twitter promptly congratulated the couple with precious replies.

Leslie Odom Jr., the actor known for his role of Aaron Burr in Miranda’s smash Broadway hit Hamilton, also welcomed baby Francisco.

Miranda and Nadal have been married for seven years. They also have a 3-year-old son named Sebastian, who according to Miranda has been eagerly awaiting becoming a big brother.

Congrats to the whole family!
