Emile Hirsch has become a father for the first time.

The 'Savages' star is ''so excited and happy'' after his former flame gave birth to a baby boy, Valor, last Sunday (27.10.13).

A source told E! News: ''The baby was born at a Florida hospital on Sunday, Oct. 27. It is a boy. His name is Valor and he was six pounds and two ounces. He is a beautiful, healthy baby boy. Everyone is so excited and happy.''

Although Emile allegedly wasn't present for the birth, he plans to be a hands-on dad.

The source added: ''Emile showed up after the baby was born and he is spending time bonding with his new child.''

The actor was spotted with his newborn son for the first time today (02.11.13).

The 'Into The Wild' star looked happy and relaxed as he brought his baby boy with him to run errands in Cape Canaveral, Florida, according to gossip website JustJared.com.

A source previously revealed the 28-year-old star had a brief fling with his baby's mother after they ''met at an Oscar after party this year.''

Emile has previously dated actresses Amanda Seyfried, Ellen Page and Elisha Cuthbert.
