Sam Claflin is surviving a whole new challenge: daddy duty!

The Hunger Games star is a first-time father after welcoming a baby with his wife, English actress Laura Haddock, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Claflin, 29, and Haddock, 30, welcomed their first child in December. Details — including the baby’s sex and name — have not been released.

Although the couple never officially confirmed the pregnancy, the Da Vinci’s Demons star’s baby belly was on full display when the parents-to-be stepped out in November for the London premiere of the hit franchise’s final installment, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.

Much like the silent reveal that they were expecting, Haddock quietly confirmed the couple were new parents when she showed off her svelte shape in a fitted lilac gown at Sunday’s Critics’ Choice Awards.
