Acclaimed actor and director Jordan Peele and fellow actress Chelsea Peretti welcomed Beaumont Gino Peele in 2017 - their first baby boy together. Beaumont Gino was born to parents who value privacy and have kept him away from the limelight.

Both are accomplished, well-established actors and comedians, and his father's career has undergone a significant and rewarding transformation since his directorial debut with "Get Out."

The year that film came out was the year the couple's baby boy arrived, and the family has been on a winning streak ever since. While Beaumont Gino was born into a family bursting with talent, the young Peele also has rich ancestral roots.

Beaumont Gino's paternal grandfather, Hayward Peele, was an African American, while his paternal grandmother, Lucinda J. Williams, came from an English bloodline with distant Dutch and Scottish roots.

Beaumont Gino's great-grandparents - who gave birth to his paternal grandmother - have American roots dating back to the 1600s, beginning in Maryland and Massachusetts, Per Jordan Peele's IMDb.

Furthermore, Beaumont Gino's maternal grandfather descended from English and Italian ancestry. His maternal grandmother is Askenazi Jewish and came from a Ukrainian, Russian, and Belarusian bloodline.

Jordan Peele's Fatherhood Experience

Jordan Peele and his wife, actress, and comedian Chelsea Peretti, first announced that they were expecting their first child in February 2017.

The couple dropped another bombshell on fans when they revealed they had secretly tied the knot in 2016 during a game of trivia on "Late Night With Seth Meyers."

Following the announcement of their baby's arrival, Peretti kept her fans updated on the progress of her growing baby bump through her hilarious social media posts.

In the months leading up to their son's birth, the actor could not hide his excitement about becoming a first-time father. Still, he joked about the "responsibility" and "unpredictability" attached to the role.

Peele likened the prospect of fatherhood to being the captain of a pirate ship steering toward a tempest, and the actor expressed his thoughts about kids being "creepy." He and his wife later welcomed their son, Beaumont Gino Peele, on July 1, 2017.

Since then, the Beaumont Gino's notoriously private parents have gone to lengths to shield their son from the spotlight — only giving fans a tiny glimpse of their baby boy during the 2018 Oscars.

In a photo shared by Peretti on Twitter, Beaumont Gino's arms and legs were barely visible as he is safely nestled in his mother's protective arms. The actress jokingly remarked that it was "possible" she was holding her son in a "little tux."

While the proud parents have been very efficient in keeping Beaumont Gino away from the spotlight, they have still been relatively open about their parenting experience.

During a 2018 interview with PEOPLE, Beaumont Gino's dad, Peele, opened up about fatherhood and said:

"He's over 7 months now. Every day is a joy. You just get a little bit more of the person. You meet a little bit more of the person."

Meanwhile, Peele and Peretti earned their "notoriously private" tag long before welcoming their son. Despite their celebrity status, the lovebirds have managed to keep their romantic life low-key through the years.

Beaumont Gino Peele's Private Parents

There had been a few rumors about how Beaumont Gino's parents first met, with some media reports claiming that Peretti's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" co-star Andy Samberg set her up with Peele.

However, Beaumont Gino's mom has since come out to dismiss those claims. Peretti revealed that they met on Twitter after Peele paid her a compliment on a web series she had done in the past.

The five-year-old's parents picked things up from there and dated for two years before finally getting engaged in 2015. The twosome broke the news of their engagement through a brief Twitter exchange.

Five months after announcing their engagement, the Beaumont Gino's parents dropped another bombshell on fans when they revealed they had secretly tied the knot in 2016 during a game of trivia on "Late Night With Seth Meyers."

During a 2018 guest appearance on "CONAN," the mom-of-one opened up about how she and Peele eloped to Big Sur for their wedding. She claimed they had no wedding guests, and their pet dog was the only witness.

Despite the demands of their respective careers, Peele and Peretti have remained committed to each other and are a true reflection of a happy family with their son, Beaumont Gino.

They are equally very supportive of their careers, and Peele, who worked with Lakeith Stanfield in his award-winning film "Get Out," once admitted that he feels blessed to have Peretti as his partner in life:

"I just couldn't have asked for a more supportive partner...I get to come home and have the funniest person in the world in the room with me."

The couple overflows with comedy talent, and by their very own admission, they expect their Beaumont Gino to be a comedy genius. Only time will tell if their little prophecy will come to fruition.

Beaumont Gino's parents still managed to keep his life and relationship relatively private, and they have actively avoided sharing his photos on their social media pages.
