Alexander Skarsgard’s family just got a little bit bigger.

The True Blood star welcomed a new baby into his family, just in time for his 36th birthday. On Friday, Aug. 24, Alex’s new brother was born!

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the new addition is the eighth child in the Skarsgard family. You heard us right, Truebies — Alex’s dad, famed Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard, now has more children than The Sound of Music’s Captain von Trapp.

Out of all of the Skarsgard children, half of them are actors, although none as famous as A. Skars. Stellan, 61, has been in the business for more than forty years, most recently starring in Thor, The Avengers, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo — just to name a few. He also co-starred with son Alex in 2011’s Melancholia.

And while it remains to be seen if Stellan’s newest son will head into the business, with such a talented dad and brother, we have a feeling he’ll be gracing our screens in no time!
