Ahh, there’s now a baby in the Maze Runner family!
While production for the franchise’s third and final film, The Death Cure, is on hold until February 2017 — the movie currently has a 2018 release date after Dylan O’Brien‘s on-set accident in March — there’s still some great news in the realm of James Dashner‘s book series-turned-flick franchise: Kaya Scodelario is officially a parent!
That’s right, the 24-year-old actress, who plays TMR‘s leading lady, Teresa, is now a mom, after giving birth to her first child with husband Benjamin Walker. She shared the news on Instagram, saying, “Welcome to the world little man. We couldn’t be happier or more in love with you & Arnie’s loving his new cuddle buddy.” (FYI, Arnie is the name of the couple’s French Bulldog.)
The two, who are nearly 10 years apart in age, first got together in October 2014, and got engaged soon after — 2 months later, to be more precise — in December. Shortly over a year later, the pair got married in January 2016. They announced the pregnancy 5 months later, in June. Considering the bebe’s recent birthdate, Kaya & Ben clearly wasted no time getting that bun in the oven. Congrats, you two!

"Plunger. It's just so easy! A toothbrush would be crazy, too, because they wouldn't see it coming. You could be like, 'Oh, here's my plunger — AHH toothbrush!!'"
"A bar of soap. I feel maybe they'd be allergic to it because they don't wash. And I could rub it in their eyes. And I could use it to make the floor slippery and make them fall over."
Thomas Brodie Sangster
"I'd remove the blades from my razor and attach them to my toothbrush. Well, a bit like a prison shank. "
"Hairspray. You gotta get the hairspray and blind them. You get matches and hairspray and they're dead."
Ki Hong Lee
"I would take the shower tray you put the soap on, break that apart and have Wolverine claws with the metal."
"Oh, wow! I don't know. I really don't. I guess a plunger?
"Probably my loofah. Why? Don't know. I just thought...I scrub in all kinds of areas, so...I'd scrub a crank to death. Or a blow dryer. Blow dry him right to the face."
"I guess a toothbrush. No, a plunger; it keeps them at bay."
