Emerson Drive fiddle player David Pichette and wife Jill have welcomed their first child into the world! Emma Victoria Pichette was born Friday, November 21st at 5:35 PM and weighed in at 5 pounds, 14 ounces.
No other details have been released.
David told radio station CJFW just last week that he was “fully expecting to eat fast food for Thanksgiving” because of Emma’s expected arrival.
When asked the question most parents are asked about their new baby, Will Arnett was happy to answer,
“He’s loving being a baby right now,” the proud papa told PEOPLE Wednesday night, as the American Museum of Moving Images saluted Ben Stiller. “He’s thinking about smiling. He’s trying to decide if he’s ready or not.”
SNL costar Bill Hader says that, since he’s “got hilarious parents,” it’s only a matter of time for 2-week-old Archie. Amy, he adds, is “an amazing mom.”
“That kid is going to be the funniest. We’re going to have Archie Arnett being saluted here in about 30 years.”
Still, one thing that’s not all fun and games for Will? Midnight diaper changes, which are “very dramatic,” and something he finds “to be a very sad process.”
And as for talking – not even close.
“Noises? Not out of the top part,” Arnett quipped. “There are a lot of other noises.”

A dad himself to 10-month-old daughter Harlow, Joel Madden is confident that pals Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz will be great parents to their new son Bronx.
“They are going to be great parents,” Madden told PEOPLE Saturday while celebrating Good Charlotte’s upcoming remix album at Hollywood’s ECCO Ultra Lounge. “They both have really big hearts. I wish them the best. I know they have their hands full right now but I’m excited for them.”
Family life has inspired Joel to write more music, and Joel says he plays music for his daughter and girlfriend Nicole Ritchie at home while they spend time together.
“My whole life is centered around her,” he gushes about his daughter, “The only thing you really have is work and family. Your whole life… your whole lifestyle changes.”
And as for Harlow’s most recent milestone? Joel joked that she’s “doing chemistry now.”
“She’s doing great, she’s growing up really fast.”
John Travolta is taking on his first leading role in an animated feature in Disney’s Bolt, playing a dog who believes he has superpowers. The 54-year-old father of two (16-year-old Jett and 8-year-old Ella) got to sing and dance again, this time with co-star Miley Cyrus, in the music video for the movie. John sat down with Parade magazine and discussed how his children were impressed with his movie choice this time around.
On his popularity at home as a result of working with Miley Cyrus: “I was so popular when I got home after they had gotten the news that I sang with Miley. Doing a movie with her was big enough news. But the singing and dancing with her was a whole other thing. So I’m finally getting some attention from my kids.”
On keeping things all in the family with his next film, Old Dogs: “Absolutely. My daughter, Ella, and my wife, Kelly, both have roles. I’m so excited about my little Ella Blue making her debut as an actress. I want to see her have a fruitful career and I really think it’s time to introduce her, sort of like Will Smith introduced his son. I think this is the right thing for Ella, and Kelly thought it was smart, too. Actually it was after Kelly read the script that she wanted to be in it too. She plays Robin Williams’ wife. She said, ‘I’ll wink at you from a distance or something.’”
