"He’s the best," Benoist cooed. "I am loving being a parent. I love being a mom. He’s such a sweetheart!"

While the 32-year-old said her son brings her joy each day, she did admit that she does get choked up from time to time.

"He’s already so big and every day I’m, like, crying because he’s gained half an ounce," laughed Benoist.

Despite the fact that her son is growing like a weed, the "Glee" alum proudly announced that she has found the perfect Halloween outfit for her little one.

Proudly declaring she found a "cute Halloween onesie," Benoist admitted to Bass that her son’s first Halloween is a little bittersweet.

Not only will she not be able to show off her son's adorable getup in person to friends and family, Benoist sighed that "it’s a bummer we’re not gonna get any trick-or-treaters."

Despite the letdown, Benoist affirmed that "it’s for a good reason" that children are changing their Halloween traditions this year in order to keep their family and loved ones safe from possible exposure to COVID-19.

Benoist welcomed Huxley alongside husband and fellow "Supergirl" co-star Chris Wood last month. The two shared the announcement of their son's birth a few weeks after his arrival, with the actress gushing on Sept. 25, "This little boy is everything."
