    The Vampire Diaries star shared the exciting news with fans on Twitter just an hour after her birth.

    Ripley Nightingale Davis Born March 31st 9:51pm 7lbs, Blond hair Blue eyes Moms beautiful face ☺️ Thank you everyone for all your love and support ❤️ 🙏

    He even laughed at himself with this lighthearted joke.

    Let’s hope she doesn’t have my Dyslexia 🤪

    But the only one who wasn't laughing was his wife Kiley. In an attempt to calm her nerves during labor, Matthew thought it would be a good idea to make her smile, but doing so wasn't as easy as he'd hoped it would be.

    Here's what he learned:

    Labor Lesson 1: Just hold her hand and keep talking to a minimum.

    I’m quickly learning that women about to give birth don’t appreciate jokes. My wife usually thinks I’m funny, but now I’m just an annoying chauffeur who needs to stfu 😆

    Labor Lesson 2: The question "how are you feeling" should be removed from your vocabulary.

    Also questions like “how are you feeling?” are not well received and seem to be met with responses like: “I feel like I’m having fu

    And Labor Lesson 3: If your words are met with sarcasm or mean responses, don't take it to heart. She still loves you, it's just her anxiety talking.

    I’ve never felt so loved and hated all at the same time 😆

    Not only is he coming out of this a first-time father, but Matthew also walked out of the hospital a little wiser!

    Congratulations to the new parents!
