‘Boy Meets World’ fans, brace yourselves — Shawn Hunter is a dad! Actor Rider Strong and his wife welcomed their first child together over the holidays, according to a new report.

We’re wrapping our heads around the fact that Rider is now a dad! Of course, we know him best as Cory Matthews’ best friend in Boy Meets World, you know the one who lives in a trailer park.
Now, he’s a daddy to little Indigo “Indy” Baretto Strong. We are obsessed with his cool name!
Rider, 35, and Alexandra, 39, said their “I do’s” on Oct. 19, 2013 in a summer camp themed wedding ceremony in Oregon. This entailed a ropes course, games and a talent show where guests slept in bunks after the reception. Coolest wedding or what?
Before the ceremony, Rider took to gushing about Alexandra. “[I’m] incredibly lucky to be getting married to my best friend and partner-in-crime, Alexandra Barreto,” he said.
Ironically, his former Boy Meets World co-star Danielle Fishel got married on the exact same day. The cast just can’t stop growing up!
