Emile Hirsch Welcomes Son, Valor

0 comments

Congrats to new dad, Emile Hirsch! The Into the Wild actor was spotted outside a Florida hospital, cradling his newborn son, Valor — which might be the coolest baby name since Honor. A source confirmed more details to E! Online: "He was six pounds and two ounces. He is a beautiful, healthy baby boy. Everyone is so excited and happy." Not much is known about Valor's mother, a brief former flame of Hirsch's. According to US Weekly, the actor is "trying to be the good guy" in the situation and plans to be active in his son's life.

Hirsch has not directly confirmed the big news, though he tellingly tweeted on October 27, "Love to all my followers, beautiful Sunday." In classic sardonic form, he also recently jested: "I have a baby announcement to make. I am in fact @RonanFarrow's biological father," referencing the recent Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra paternity scandal. (Us Weekly)
