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.
