It's a Son for This "Girls" Actor!

Chris O'Dowd (who played Jessa's husband on "Girls") welcomed his first child, named Art, with his wife on Sunday. The new dad shared his joyous news on Twitter, along with a hilarious Photoshopped photo of a baby with his beard and his wife's hair.

The funnyman, who also starred in Bridesmaids and on Broadway's "Of Mice and Men," first revealed his wife's pregnancy in August during an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video (watch it below!).

In a recent interview with The Irish Independent, the Irish actor shared his happiness about being a father: "I really am excited. I'm not 24. I think I'm ready, I'm waiting for the next part of my life to start now. I've been working really hard for 10 years and that's been going well and the next part is a big challenge that I'm ready for."

Congratulations to the first-time parents!

  1. Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
