Grandfather. Grandpop. Grandpa. Pop Pop. We're not sure which he prefers, but Drake Hogestyn (John Black) will soon have a new title, thanks to the arrival of a precious bundle of joy.
Hogestyn announced on Twitter that his grandson Thomas Drake "arrived happy and healthy amidst a lively family celebration" on Christmas Day.
"He's here!!!" Hogestyn exclaimed. "So blessed and proud! Woohoo!"
