Update (6:00p.m. PST):

Us Weekly confirms it’s a boy for Christian and Sibi, with his rep sharing the news. Congratulations! 

Original story (3:30 p.m. PST):

Holy smokes, Batman! Christian Bale has a new baby. The Dark Knight Rises actor and his wife, Sibi Bale (née Blažić), have welcomed Baby No. 2, reports E! Online. They’ve got a 9-year-old daughter named Emmeline together.


Details about this new baby Bale, including name and sex, have yet to be publicly released so we invite you to begin brainstorming in the comments below. We call dibs on Robin.

Christian, 40, and Sibi, 44, have been married since January 2000 (so a lifetime and a half in Hollywood time). News of the stork’s most recent stop broke back in March; it was kind of hard not to mention after a baby bump joined Christian and Sibi on their walk down the red carpet for the 2014 Oscars.

Despite his rise to fame with roles including his Academy Award-nominated performance as Irving Rosenfeld in American Hustle, Christian has been able to keep much of his private life private. So that said, we wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t learn this new little one’s name for a good long while. We just hope the whole family’s doing well!

Got a pick for the new baby’s name? Tell us all your favorites in the comments!
