Remember Neve Campbell from Scream? Or Party of Five? The Canadian actress is in the news again these days: Campbell recently revealed that she and her boyfriend, actor JJ Feild, adopted a baby boy, Raynor, earlier this year.

Campbell and Feild have another son, Caspian, who is 6 — and is apparently overjoyed at being a big brother.

“I wanted to wait until it was official but we adopted a beautiful baby boy 5 months ago,” Campbell wrote on an Instagram post on Saturday. “Caspian is over the moon and asks every morning ‘Can I hold my baby? Can I feed my baby? Can I play with my baby.’ It’s the most incredible thing we’ve experienced. We’re so grateful for this beautiful light coming into our lives and we think of and are grateful to his birth family every day for such an incredible gift.”

 

Campbell is Catholic, but her mother’s ancestors were Sephardic Jews who immigrated to the Netherlands and converted. “I am a practicing Catholic, but my lineage is Jewish, so if someone asks me if I’m Jewish, I say yes,” she has said.

No matter what religion they practice — or whatever traditions they’ll raise their kids with — we wish a hearty mazel tov to the family!
