The family of Cory and Topanga is quickly expanding! According to EW.com, the Matthews clan has welcomed a son to the upcoming Disney Channel spin off GIRL MEETS WORLD. 13-year-old actor Teo Halm has been cast in the role of 'Elliott', joining 'Spy Kids' actress Rowan Blanchard who will portray the family's 13-year-old daughter, Riley.
The Matthews parents have shared the joyous news on Twitter. "Can't believe I have a son... Welcome to the Matthews family @TeoHalm. #GMW," Ben Savage wrote yesterday.
On Monday, actress Danielle Fishel tweeted, "I have an announcement to make. I have a gorgeous daughter (@rowblanchard) and a handsome son (@teohalm). @BenSavage and I love you both!! If having real life children is as hard as finding these two beauties (@rowblanchard & @teohalm) then I think I'm happy with being a TV mom. Ppl will be mad at me 4 saying this but whatevs. We worked so hard to find the perfect kids. We found them. I love them already. Get ready."
Last month, Fishel spoke to EW about the upcoming spin off commenting, "I don't think any of us had any idea how much people have loved Boy Meets World and how excited they would be for this kind of a show," she said. "I think it says a lot about where we are in society and the kind of shows people are anxious to see back. I know I personally miss some of the more wholesome family shows that you can watch together and I'm excited to be a part of another one."
Production for the pilot episode will begin later this month. If the series is picked up by Disney Channel, it will air during the 2013-2014 season.
