Mel Gibson has become a father for the ninth time after he welcomed his first child with girlfriend of two years Rosalind Ross, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
Son Lars Gerard Gibson was born Friday, Jan. 20, in Los Angeles, weighing in at 5 lbs. 5 oz.
“They’re thrilled and Lars is adorable. Their family is all around them and Mel is over the moon. They’re home and everybody is healthy and happy!” a source tells PEOPLE.
Already a father of eight kids, Gibson, 61, confirmed the pregnancy in September.
The new parents were last photographed together at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 8.
Mel shares seven children in age from 17 to 36, with ex-wife Robyn Moore who he was married to for almost 30 years. They separated in 2006 and Robyn filed for divorce in April 2009, citing irreconcilable differences.
