US actor Rider found fame in the 90s playing Cory Matthews' best friend, Shawn Hunter, in Disney's Boy Meets World.

Rider, now aged 35, starred in the hit family comedy for its seven-year run and reprised the role last year for spin-off show Girl Meets World.

In 2006, Rider met actress Alexandra on the set of American TV series Pepper Dennis and they married in October 2013 in Oregon.

Alexandra reportedly gave birth to Indy on 28 December, but the couple have kept the news quiet for the past few weeks.
