There are now nearly as many Mel Gibson kids out there as there are tapes of the actor berating women and insulting Jewish people.
And that's because Gibson just welcomed his ninth kid into the world.
Yes, his NINTH kid!
In news broken by People Magazine, Gibson and his girlfriend of two years, Rosalind Ross, are now parents to a boy named Lars Gerard.
He was born on January 20 in Los Angeles and weighed in at the time at 5 pounds, 5 ounces. A very enthusiastic source tells the publication:
“They’re thrilled and Lars is adorable. Their family is all around them and Mel is over the moon. They’re home and everybody is healthy and happy!”
Gibson and Ross confirmed that the latter was expecting back in September.
The anti-Semitic star is having a pretty good week, as his latest directorial effort, Hacksaw Ridge, was just nominated for Best Picture at the 2017 Academy Awards.
He's already a father to eight other children from previous relationships.
- A daughter Hannah named Hannah.
- A son named Edward.
- A son named Christian.
- A son named William.
- A son named Louis.
- A son named Milo.
- A son named Thomas.
All of these kids are the product of Gibson's 28-year marriage to former dental nurse Robyn Moore.
He also has a six-year old daughter ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, from whom Gibson had a contentious and violent split.
"Mel loves being a dad, and he and Rose can't wait to be parents together," a family friend of the pair previously told People.
"The last two years have been some of his happiest years he's ever had."
Gibson is 60 years old and Ross is 26 years old, which may explain why these past two years have been so great for him.
We don't like Gibson very much, but we still send him and his girlfriend our best wishes.
There's a baby in the picture now. All that matters is his health and happiness.
