Former Wonder Years star Fred Savage and his wife, Jennifer Lynn Stone, welcomed their first child, a boy, Savage's agent tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The baby was born Saturday night in Los Angeles. He weighed in at 6 lbs., 13 oz. and measured 20 inches long. The couple, who have yet to name their son, "are absolutely thrilled," Savage's agent tells PEOPLE.

The new parents were childhood pals, but their paths diverged in 1988, when Savage, then 11, moved from their Chicago suburb to L.A. to play Kevin Arnold on The Wonder Years.

Eleven years later, Savage, now 30, and Stone, 33, reconnected at Savage's birthday party. "We started talking and smooching, and we've been together ever since," the actor told PEOPLE after their August 2004 wedding.

Among their vows: "I promised to always bring up a glass of water to her before we go to bed, and she promised to never let me dress myself," Savage said.

After The Wonder Years ended its run in 1993, Savage continued to work in television and movies. His film credits include Austin Powers in Goldmember, The Rules of Attraction and Welcome to Mooseport.

Working behind the camera, Savage produced and directed Phil of the Future on the Disney Channel and directed episodes of the sitcom Kitchen Confidential and Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh.

He most recently starred on the ABC sitcom Crumbs.
