It’s been 20 years since Good Burger first hit theaters (yes, really), but there isn’t a ’90s kid out there who doesn’t still vividly remember the teen buddy flick — or its infamous catch phrase: “Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger!”
These days, Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell seem to have moved on to bigger and better things — Thompson’s been a regular cast member on SNL since 2003, and Mitchell is an active actor, director, and comedian in his own right, too.
But come this spring, it looks like Mitchell will be able to add one more gig to his resume: the proud dad of a newborn.
Taking to Instagram this morning, Mitchell announced he’s expecting a baby with wife Asia Lee, and did so by paying homage to his 1997 comedy in the most adorable way:
“We have a bun in the oven!,” wrote Mitchell in his Valentine’s Day post. “Thank you @therealasialee for being the best Wife to me the best Friend to me and now the best Mom to our blessed baby!! I love you so much! #thankyouJesus #Blessed #specialdelivery #myWiferocks”
Along with that sweet caption came a photo of Mitchell and Lee dressed in Good Burger hats — holding a bottle of soda and a burger to complete the scene.
While this is the couple’s first child together, The Atlantic reports that Mitchell is already a father of two — Lyric and Allure — from his first marriage to Tyisha Hampton. And though there’s no word yet on the baby’s gender or due date, one thing’s for sure: Mitchell is clearly beyond thrilled to become a papa for the third time.
