Here's some new math for Danica McKellar's next book: one plus one equals three.
The former Wonder Years star and bestselling author gave birth to her first child Tuesday night, a boy named Draco Verta. He weighed in at 7 lbs., 2 oz. and takes his moniker – which means dragon – from the constellation of the same name.
"We are humbled, overjoyed and so grateful for this miraculous gift," McKellar and husband Mike Verta tell PEOPLE in a statement. "It's like we've only now just learned the true meaning of love."

Here's a side of Winnie Cooper you've probably never seen before.
Danica McKellar, the object of Fred Savage's boyhood love in The Wonder Years, is showing off her grown-up side, stripping down and baring plenty of skin for Maxim's June Hot 100 issue on newsstands now.
What's does the former child star, 35, think is hot?
"Confidence is one of the sexiest things in guys and girls," says McKellar, now married with a baby on the way.

Danica McKellar and her husband of one year, Mike Verta, are expecting their first child this fall.
"I'm nearing the end of my first trimester and I'm so excited – I've been bursting to tell people," says McKellar, 35, who played Winnie on The Wonder Years, tells PEOPLE exclusively.
However, she originally put off confirming her suspicions. "I was in the middle of a really intense deadline for my book," explains McKellar, whose third tome, Hot X: Algebra Exposed, comes out in August.
"I wanted to put off the [pregnancy] test because I didn't want any distractions. That only lasted a day – I couldn't stop thinking about it and I caved! You can't try to put that off."
