Celebrity Baby Dynamite: Jon Heder, Wife Welcome Child

by at . Comments

His uncle Rico and older brother Kip might not be too preoccupied with their mundane lives to notice, but at The Hollywood Gossip, well, this stuff is our mundane life.

Jon Heder, who rose to fame as the title character in Napoleon Dynamite, was proud to welcome his first child, with wife Kirsten this week.

The baby girl, Evan Jane Heder, is "safe and sound and healthy," says a rep for Heder, who did not reveal the baby's date of birth.

In March, at the Los Angeles premiere of Heder's comedy Blades of Glory, where he stars alongside Will Ferrell, told reporters that his wife, who was with him at the event, was due any second.

They announced last fall that they were expecting.

Heder, 29, met Kirsten when they were students at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. They announced in September that they were expecting their first child.

Jon Heder, who is from Salem, Ore., burst onto the scene playing the lovable oddball Napoleon Dynamite in the 2004 film. He also starred in Just Like Heaven, Bench Warmers and School for Scoundrels.

Congrats from all of us to John and Kirsten, who bears a resemblance to another new celebrity mom, Tobey Maguire's fiancee Jennifer Meyer.

Speaking of which, it's rare you see a celebrity baby born to married parents these days. There are just so many knocked up fiancees like Salma Hayek!

Every baby deserves two devoted parents and the chance to live an organic, toxin-free life.
