Jamie Dornan is a dad!

The Irish actor, 31, is having quite a year — first he landed the starring role of Christian in Fifty Shades of Grey and now he and wife Amelia Warner have welcomed a baby girl, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The couple are “delighted to announce the birth of their daughter, born at the end of November,” his rep tells PEOPLE.

No further details are currently available.

Dornan and Warner were married in April and confirmed the pregnancy in June.

The new dad is currently filming the adaptation of the erotic novel in Vancouver, and Dornan has said in the past that the steamy sex scenes don’t faze him.

“I’m a fairly worldly guy,” Dornan said after taking over the role from Charlie Hunnam, who dropped out in October.

“I grew up in a very liberal place. I’m not saying we had a playroom, but I’m not shocked by the sex in the book. It’s essential to tell the story. I can’t believe films that don’t invoke the sexual side of it. So it works for me.”

A daughter? Dakota Johnson, his costar, says he had a son.

Every other site is saying they had a boy. Usually people has the right information, but I’m not too sure about this one…

Considering this came from his rep, I believe the rep.

Congratulations to them! Miss him on OUAT.

His rep said they had a girl, so I believe the rep over other sources.

Congratulations! Miss him on OUAT.

PEOPLE is right: UPDATE: According to Jamie Dornan’s rep, the actor and his wife welcomed a baby girl, not a baby boy, as previously reported.

I wonder if she stayed behind in England, or went with him to Vancouver?

@ omepeopleneedtobegrateful

That’s not true. Back track and look at the boy births vs. the girl births among celebrities recently…it’s pretty much been an even playing field. There was actually a steady boy boom recently if you look back. Are you thinking of the celebrities that are announcing they are expecting girls like Drew Barrymore and Kendra Wilkinson???

Trish- Don’t waste your time trying to reason with him/her. They’ve said the exact same thing almost word for word on other recent threads about celeb baby girls- meaning they are obviously a troll who is trying to get a rise out of the rest of us. Let’s not give them the satisifaction!
