Update: The couple have chosen the name Harper Hammer for their daughter, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

According to a source, the name is a nod to the street Chambers lived on when she met Hammer eight years ago.

Posted Dec. 2: There’s a new girl in town.

The Lone Ranger actor Armie Hammer is a first-time father after welcoming a daughter with his wife, journalist Elizabeth Chambers Hammer, on Monday, Dec. 1, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“Both mom and baby are doing great!” the rep tells PEOPLE.

The couple’s daughter was delivered by Dr. Jay Goldberg.

A source close to the couple add that the proud new parents are “over the moon in love” with their baby girl and are looking forward to introducing her to family and friends.

Hammer, 28, and Chambers, the Chief Correspondent for the Human Rights Foundation, announced their pregnancy in June, one month after celebrating their four-year wedding anniversary.

“They will be amazing parents,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “They are such a loving couple that this is the perfect next chapter in their lives.”

Hammer — who owns Bird Bakery with his wife in San Antonio, Texas — will next be seen in Mine and stars in Guy Ritchie‘s The Man from U.N.C.L.E., out next year.

Congrats. At first I read it as “Armie Hammer is Dead!” and my eyes bugged out. Much happier that I was wrong. A very beautiful family indeed.

Litmusy, I did the same thing!!

I know it has probably been said before, but his parents had to have thought he was a joke: Armie Hammer? Seriously?

Catherine on

It’s short for Armand … I don’t know if that makes it better, or worse.

@Yahoo, it’s a family name. There is nothing wrong with that. Congratulations to this couple on their bundle of joy!

Harper Hammer? Seriously? There are so many beautiful names including Harper, just not with Hammer. Emma, Grace, Lydia, Adelyn, just to name a very few. Should have used Harper as the middle name.

LinZ on

He is gorg and a good actor. I love the name Harper but with hammer? Not good.

MLB on

Cute couple!

Harper Hammer is a terrible name. Did they not even say it out loud before they wrote it on the birth certificate?

E on

At least they didn’t name her Nail’n.

I think when a lot of people choose a name they must not say it with their last name. Harper is a lovely name but personally I don’t think it sounds all that great with the last name of Hammer.

Tara on

I would make babies with him.

Taylor on

At first, I thought Harper was really cute, but then I remembered his last name and….yeah.

Edie on

Love the name…Harper…

Mamagirl31 on

That’s almost as bad as peter piper…

Kimber on

Harper is fine, but when you follow it with Hammer…….not so much.

Reuben on

Is it just me or is Baking jokes just over flowing from everybody? Ha ha!

His grandfather is/was THE Armand Hammer – this family is worth a small fortune…don’t snicker at the name! His daughter’s name however…ugh. It will be perfectly fine one day between 30 and 40 years from now when she gets married and changes her last name. Until then…poor thing…

Mandy on

Love the name. So happy for Armie!

Linda on

Another Hollywood Harper…….

Victoria on


Nail’n would’ve been perfect. Seriously!
