Patrick J. Adams says fatherhood is ''great''.

The 37-year-old actor welcomed his first child, a daughter, into the world two weeks ago when his wife Troian Bellisario gave birth, and has said he's loving fatherhood so far, as he joked his tot has taught him the value of sleep.

Speaking to People magazine, he said: ''Oh man, we are two weeks in. It has just taught me how much sleep means. But it is good, it's great.''

The 'Suits' actor announced the birth of his daughter - whose name has not yet been revealed - on Instagram on October 8, as he posted a picture of her tiny hand holding his finger.

He captioned the snap: ''The world just got 8lbs heavier. Thank you to everyone who fought for and protected our privacy during this incredible and beautiful time in our lives. Everyone is happy and healthy and loving every moment of this. I could not be more excited to bring a baby girl into this world at this moment. We will raise her to be powerful, to always speak her mind and heart and to live without fear. It's a brand new day and a brave new world and they are both beautiful.''

'Pretty Little Liars' actress Troian, 32, posted the same picture on her own Instagram account, and said she was determined to raise her baby girl to be ''kind and strong''.

She added: ''I cannot express how grateful I am. To the people who have protected us and kept our growing family safe and respected our privacy. To our tribe for expanding with grace and exponential amounts of love. To my @halfadams for being so supportive during every moment of my pregnancy and her birth. And to whatever incredible force of fate that brought this baby girl into our lives. I couldn't be more proud to be her mother. To bring a new girl into this world and to do my best to raise her to be kind, strong and whatever the heck she wants to be.''
