Emile Hirsch welcomes baby boy Valor

Emile Hirsch is a new dad.

The actor welcomed his first child on Oct. 27 and debuted the tiny newborn via a touching photograph over the weekend, which shows Emile holding baby boy Valor in his arms.

On the day that his son was born, the 28-year-old actor wrote on his Twitter account: "Love to all my followers, beautiful Sunday.” 

The baby weighed six pounds and two ounces.

The mother, who is unnamed, had a short fling with Emile after meeting at an Oscar party this year. The two remain friends and plan on raising the child together.

A source said: “she is a nice, down to earth girl and she will make a great mom.”

Emile will certainly have his hands full this year; not only is he embracing fatherhood, but he's been cast as legendary comedian John Belushi in a new biopic, which is set to begin filming in the spring.

Congratulations to the new parents!
