British Actor Simon Pegg and wife Maureen McCann welcomed a baby girl, the actor’s rep tells Celebrity Baby Scoop.
The Shaun of the Dead star, who is godfather to Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s 5-year-old daughter Apple, has been ready for fatherhood for a while.
“It’s the most important thing to me,” says Simon. “I’m very excited. I want to be a really good dad, a good influence and a good role model – someone my child can turn to, whatever the hell that means… It’s all to do with your attitude and making sure they stay grounded, but making sure they aren’t deprived of anything.”
The 39-year-old actor, who had his fingers crossed for a daughter, announced his wife’s pregnancy back in February when she was five months along.
Simon most recently appeared in the new Star Trek remake.
He and Maureen have been married since July 2005.
