Alexander Skarsgard Confirms Birth of First Baby, Says ‘Succession’ Fans Will Be ‘Shocked’ by End

Congratulations are in order for Alexander Skarsgard!

The Succession actor confirmed that he welcomed his first child with girlfriend Tuva Novotny to ET’s Rachel Smith at the season 4 premiere Monday evening at the Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City.

“Thank you very much,” Skarsgard said with a smile when he was congratulated on his family’s new bundle of joy. Skarsgard and Novotny were spotted out in November with their baby.

He proudly showed off a stuffed animal he received at the premiere. “I got this on the red carpet,” the 46-year-old actor said, sharing a glimpse of the toy. “Thank you, thank you.”

On the critically-lauded HBO drama, Skarsgard plays Lukas Matsson, a savvy tech CEO whose streaming company, GoJo, is merging with Logan Roy’s Waystar Royco. The actor, who joined the series in season 3, had a difficult time articulating how Succession fans will react to the ending of the final episode but offered an intriguing tease.
