Octodad Alert: Mel Gibson Welcomes His Eighth Child


Octodad Alert: Mel Gibson Welcomes His Eighth Child

Mel Gibson’s super swimmers just silver-medaled in baby makin’ (Jim Bob Duggar’s are the perpetual champ), making Mel a father for the eighth time on Friday when his girlfriend, musician Oksana Grigorieva, gave birth to a baby girl.

“This will confirm that Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson welcomed the arrival of a baby girl named Lucia on Friday, Oct. 30, 2009, at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles,” says Gibson’s rep, confirming earlier rumors of the birth.

“Everything is great! They couldn’t be happier,” a friend tells People. “Everyone’s healthy and thrilled.  He loooves it!”

Yep!  “Loooves it.”

Gibson, 53, was at Oksana’s side in Los Angeles until she and the baby went home from the hospital, then he flew to New York Sunday to continue shooting The Beaver, co-starring Jodie Foster.

A week full of busy beavers for Mel!

Mel already has seven children (six sons and a daughter) with his ex-wife Robyn, while Oksana has a son, Alexander, with her former boyfriend and most questionable choice as James Bond, actor Timothy Dalton.

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
