Lin-Manuel Miranda and his wife Vanessa Nadal are officially parents of two, and we wouldn’t have expected anything less from the Broadway composer’s birth announcement! The couple welcomed a baby boy, Francisco Miranda, on Friday and Manuel made sure to give his son a drama-filled introduction to the world via Twitter.

Posting a black and white photo of Vanessa’s first moments with the smiley, little Francisco to the social media site, Manuel wrote:

“Int. Hospital Room. Night.

[The screams reach a delirious crescendo. FRANCISCO MIRANDA enters. He is 7 pounds and 13 ounces.]


(Cue standing ovation.) Now that is the sound of a proud dad. Of course, the congratulatory tweets from fans came pouring in:

The couple now has their hands full with two sons—their first born, Sebastian is now three-years-old.

Congratulations to the beautiful family, we can’t wait to see all that awaits!
