A hearty congrats are in store for Mel Gibson, 61, as the director has become a proud papa for the ninth time. His girlfriend of two years Rosalind Ross, 26, gave birth to the couple’s first child January 22, in Los Angeles, with little Lars Gerard Gibson weighing in at five pounds and five ounces. “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!” says a source.

Mel and Rosalind announced they had a little one on the way back in September 2016, and an insider had said that, “Mel loves being a dad and he and Rose can’t wait to be parents together. The last two years have been some of his happiest years he’s ever had.” He had seven kids with his ex-wife of 31 years Robyn Moore. After they split, he went on to have a daughter Lucia, seven, with Russian model Oksana Grigorieva, 46, in 2009. Unfortunately they ended up in a nasty custody battle over the little girl, finally reaching an agreement in 2011.
