‘Always Sunny’ Couple Welcomes Baby Boy
Good news for It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fans — co-stars Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney welcomed their first child, Axel Lee McElhenney, on Wednesday.
Kaitlin explained to People that lil’ Axel caused her to go into labor while she was in the middle of watching the Phillies/Dodgers game on Tuesday night.
“We love him like crazy,” Kaitilin says, “Even though he made us miss the second half of the game.”
The couple originally met on the set of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia when creator and star Rob was auditioning actresses to fill the female role of Sweet Dee. When they first met, Kaitlin was not impressed:
I didn’t know [any of them]. My manager actually asked [after my audition], ‘Were any of them cute?’ And I was like, ‘Nah. Not really.’ But I do take it all back now.
The two began dating and eventually got married in 2008. They announced Kaitlin’s pregnancy last March.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
