61 year old Mel Gibson and his 26 year old girlfriend Rosalind Ross have welcomed their first child together. Lars Gerard Gibson was born on Saturday; a representative for the couple shared the news with the New York Post.

Baby Lars has eight older half siblings to dote over him. Gibson has seven children, aged between 36 and 18, with his ex-wife Robyn Moore, and a 7 year old daughter with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. He also has three grandchildren.

It's been a busy month for the actor / director. In addition to the birth of his son, Mel was nominated for a best director Golden Globe for his film Hacksaw Ridge and could be in contention to pick up an Oscar nomination later today.
