Russell Crowe Holds Onto Baby Son

Hollywood actor RUSSELL CROWE is so overwhelmed at becoming a father for the first time, he won't let anybody else hold his baby son.

The GLADIATOR star's wife DANIELLE SPENCER gave birth to CHARLES SPENCER CROWE in Sydney, Australia on Sunday night (21DEC03) and Russell is so overjoyed he can't put the tot down.

Father-in-law DON SPENCER says, "We kept saying, 'Has anyone else got a chance of holding this baby, Russell?'

"He said, 'I'm bonding, I'm bonding.'"

And Don confirmed Russell's previous comments he'll shun next year's (04) OSCARS ceremony in favour of staying at home with Charles, even if he's nominated for his performance in MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD.

Don says, "That's what he says. I think he'll be a fantastic Dad. He's over the moon."
