Orlando, Florida, United States (4E) – Into the Wild actor Emile Hirsch has welcomed his very first child, a son, born by an unnamed woman he used to go out with.
The 28-year-old Hirsch is mum on his newborn child, but an endearing photo of him holding his son taken on Saturday has been released on the Internet.
A source told E! News, “The baby was born at a Florida hospital on Sunday, Oct. 27. His name is Valor and he was six pounds and two ounces. He is a beautiful, healthy baby boy. Everyone is so excited and happy.”
The baby arrives less than a month after news broke that Hirsch was expecting a child with a woman he had a fling with. Hirsch and the unnamed baby mama reportedly met at an Oscar after party.
A source told New York Daily News earlier in October, “She is five-and-a-half months pregnant now, but they are not dating. His friends know about it, he is doing the right thing and will be taking care of her and his baby financially.”
Hirsch and his son’s mother, though not anymore dating, are said to remain friends and are to raise baby Valor together.
