On Monday, April 28, David Arqeutte, 42, and his girlfriend Christina McLarty, 33, welcomed the newest addition to their family.
Arquette and McLarty have been dating on and off since 2011, but it wasn’t until this past November that they revealed that they had a baby on the way. According to Arquette’s rep, their baby, a boy, made his grand entrance into the world on Monday.
Charlie west was born in Los Angeles at around 12:30 Monday afternoon, weighing in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces. Arquette’s rep says that mommy and baby are doing well, and are currently asking for privacy to spend this time together as a family.
“Mom, dad and baby are doing well,” Arquette’s rep told PEOPLE. “They appreciate all of your well wishes and thank you for respecting their privacy at this time.”
In January, Arquette revealed that they were expecting a little boy, and said that he was ready to take on the challenge of being a new father again. “I’ve done it once so there’s not that fear that a first-time parent has because you just don’t know what to expect,” he told PEOPLE at the time. “You have to have a lot of faith that you will be able to keep them safe and not mess them up too much,” he added.
Arquette already has one child, a daughter, Coco, 9, with his ex-wife, former Friends star, Courteney Cox. During an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Cox revealed that Coco was very excited to be a big sister.
“Yeah, she’s really excited,” Cox told Ellen. “At first she was nervous, because, you know, it’s a big deal. At first, I was nervous, I was like whoa, heavy. Now it’s great and we actually all had dinner the other night, the whole family. It’s a very unique relationship,” Cox continued. “All of us like literally, me and Christina and David and Coco. It’s great though.”
