Cory and Topanga are not only the parents to a daughter, but also a son -- on TV, that is.

Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel's characters in the upcoming Disney series, "Girl Meets World," are set to have a son played by actor Teo Halm.

"I have an announcement to make. I have a gorgeous daughter (@rowblanchard) and a handsome son (@teohalm). @BenSavage and I love you both!!" Fishel, who will reprise her role as Topanga, Tweeted on March 4.

"Can't believe I have a son... Welcome to the Matthews family @TeoHalm. #GMW," Savage Tweeted on March 5.

Halm, 13, playfully responded to his TV mother on Twitter, posting: "See ya tomorrow Madre @daniellefishel, From Son."

Halm, is set to play Elliott Matthews, the brother of Rowan Blanchard's character, Riley. The spin-off is set to pick up 13 years after the famed ABC comedy ended its run, and will tell the story from Cory and Topanga's daughter Riley's point of view.

In November 2012, it was announced that the pair had officially signed on to reprise their beloved roles in the new Disney channel pilot, "Girl Meets World." The show was announced to be a spin-off from the pair's long-running 1990s hit series. Rowan Blanchard, 11, was cast as the daughter of Cory and Topanga several weeks ago.

"We're on our way," Savage posted on Instagram on March 6, with a corresponding photo of the script for the pilot that reads, "pre-table draft."

In the original series, Savage, younger brother of "Wonder Years" star Fred Savage, captured the hearts of viewers as the charming prankster Cory Matthews, while Fishel portrayed the over-achieving hippie Topanga. Rider Strong portrayed Cory's bad boy best friend Shawn Hunter and Will Friedle portrayed his dim-witted brother, Eric Matthews.

"Boy Meets World" ran for seven seasons, between 1993 and 2000, during which viewers watched Cory navigate through the tough years of adolescence, bringing with him worldly wisdom and amusing jokes to his tribulations and trials.

When the show went off the air, Savage graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Political Science. He later appeared in TV movies such as "Car Babes" in 2006 and "Making it Legal" in 2007. He also made guest appearances on TV shows such as "Phil of the Future," "Chuck" and "Without a Trace."

From 2006 to 2007, Fishel was a correspondent for "The Tyra Banks Show." Fishel is also known for dating former 'N Sync band member Lance Bass, who revealed he was openly gay in 2006, and for being the spokesperson for NutriSystem. From 2008 until 2011, Fishel was the host for the Style Network's pop culture show, "The Dish."
