Riverdale actor KJ Apa has officially welcomed his first child with his girlfriend… and no, his real-life partner is not Betty or Veronica.

He may have been busy surviving bear attacks on-screen, but off-screen the real life Archie Andrews (AKA KJ himself) has been busy preparing to become a father with his girlfriend, Clara Berry.

Clara took to her Instagram to confirm the delightful news on Monday.

Sharing a photo of a tiny little hand curled around one finger , she wrote: “Sasha Vai Keneti Apa, born on the 23rd of September. He is a perfect perfection.

“I am the luckiest to have now two men of my life, filling my heart with this cosmic gigantic vast love. ❤️‍🔥”

The post was soon flooded with well wishes, including one from KJ’s Riverdale co-star Lili Reinhart who wrote: “Can’t wait to meet him 😍❤️ congratulations ❤️❤️❤️.”

KJ, 24, and Clara, 27, announced they were expecting a baby back in May. Clara took to her Instagram to share a series of maternity shots along with a chef emoji.

According to E!, the couple first confirmed their relationship back in February 2020 after KJ shared an Insta photo of him and Clara kissing.

The post may no longer exist, but that hasn’t stopped the 24-year-old from paying tribute to the mother of his child.

Just today, KJ shared a photo of the pair of them, with the caption: “All your beautiful things make it hard for me to leave you alone. Thankyou for listening – so much love.”

Well, it looks like the New Zealander’s off-screen romance is very different to his on-screen love triangle with Betty and Veronica. And with fewer bear attacks.

Congrats to the happy couple!
