David Arquette welcomes baby son

2014-04-30 09:21

Los Angeles - David Arquette has become a father again.

The 42-year-old actor and his girlfriend Christina McLarty welcomed their baby son Charlie West into the world on Monday at 00:35 in Los Angeles.

The tiny tot weighed a healthy 3.8kg and is said to be doing "well" following his birth.

David's representative told "Mum, dad and baby are doing well.

"They appreciate all of your well wishes and thank you for respecting their privacy at this time."

David, who also has nine-year-old daughter Coco with his ex-wife Courteney Cox, recently admitted that he was keen to give his son a "traditional" name.

He said previously: "I think we will go with something a little more traditional. I've been a bit cryptic about it. It's going to be the name of my grandfather used to play."

Meanwhile, the hunky star is looking forward to seeing Christina, whom he has been dating on-again/off-again since 2011, adapt to motherhood and watching the tot growing up.

He said earlier this year: "It's all new, but it's all beautiful. Playing catch, making [his son] laugh, and seeing my girlfriend Christina being a mother for the first time and all the joy and love that it's going to bring her and me."
