Baby Bale is here!

American Hustle star Christian Bale is a dad for the second time after he and wife Sibi recently welcomed their second child, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The couple are proud parents to a son, a source tells PEOPLE. No further details are available.

The notoriously private couple are already parents to a 9-year-old daughter.

Although the pair never addressed the pregnancy, they didn’t need to after the actor’s wife debuted her baby belly while walking the red carpet at the Academy Awards in March.

Bale, 40, and Sibi, a former model and makeup artist, were later spotted out for a stroll in May, with the mom-to-be showing off her burgeoning bump.

To Izzie,
Celebrity babies are always newsworthy. Good parents,
celebrity or not, feels that the arrival of their baby is the
greatest news that will ever happen to them. Cheer up,

Marie on

But it was able to get your attention.

Marcus on

Izzie why are you here if its not newsworthy to you?

Ladybug on

Most parents, whether celebrities or not, feel that the arrival
of their baby is the greatest news they will ever experience.
So yes, this is newsworthy. Cheer up, please!

STFU, Bill. The crew member got over it, maybe it’s time you did too.

Saw him at the mall with his little girl and he was so sweet to her. I could tell that he was a great dad. Congrats!

norosecolored glspls on

a simple congratulations would suffice. i am so very sick of the terms “baby bump”, “burgeoning bump” ad nauseaum. media really cheapens pregnancy in this manner. grow up.

Phoebe, if Christian Bale is “homely” to you, I’d love to know what the guys you know look like. They must be Adonises!

Brooke on

It took about 6 years to find out his daughter’s name was Emmeline….we should find out this one’s name in oh….2019?

Chuck on

Why would they have to ‘address the pregnancy’? It’s none of our business.

bitsy on

@Chuck, my thoughts exactly! Congrats on the new addition to the family!!!

West on

I thought his daughter’s name was Luca . Any hoo, congratulations to the family on the birth of a New baby boy . How exciting . He’s a top notch actor in my book .
