Aaron Paul revealed that he asked Bryan Cranston to be the godfather of his newborn son, Rydin.
"I love the man to death," Paul said on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."
"He's one of my best friends in the world, so it was just a no-brainer," the actor added.
Aaron Paul revealed that he asked his longtime friend and "Breaking Bad" costar Bryan Cranston to be the godfather of his newborn son.
"He has met the baby," Paul said of Cranston during an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Tuesday. "I asked Bryan on his birthday if he would be our baby's godfather."
"He said no," Paul joked. "He's very busy."
On a serious note, the actor said: "He's very excited, very honored. I love the man to death. He's one of my best friends in the world, so it was just a no-brainer."
In December, Lauren revealed via Instagram that she was pregnant with their second child.
During his appearance on the "Tonight Show," Aaron said that the couple named their newborn son Ryden and Story is "madly in love with him."
Cranston being selected as the godfather makes sense, given his years-long friendship with Paul.
Paul and Cranston met through their roles as drug user Jesse Pinkman and high-school chemistry teacher Walter White in AMC's drama series "Breaking Bad."
The hit show lasted for six seasons with Paul and Cranston winning a total of seven Emmys for their performances. Their friendship outlasted the series, which concluded in September 2013.
The actors also went on to launch a Mezcal line called Dos Hombres.
When Cranston received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in July 2013, Paul was present to deliver a moving speech about his costar.
"The moment I met Bryan, I instantly fell in love with the man," Paul said. "I mean, how could you not? He's charming, he's brilliant, and he's a beautiful human being inside and out who is constantly running around in his underwear making people laugh."
Paul and Cranston reprised their "Breaking Bad" roles for a sequel movie called "El Camino," released on Netflix in October 2019.
"It was nice to zip on the skin of Pinkman again," Paul told Fallon. "It was strange. It was a lot of the same crew from 'Breaking Bad' is working on 'Better Call Saul' so it was just nice to be reunited with this beautiful group of people out in New Mexico."
