Guy Pearce Is A First-Time Daddy!

Guy Pearce has become a father for the first time!

The Aussie actor made the exciting announcement on Twitter on Monday night, revealing that he and partner Carice van Houten had welcomed a little boy with a familiar name.

"A cute little package arrived and told us his name's Monte Pearce," the proud dad wrote. "We think we're gonna keep him. Placenta smoothie anyone?"

Van Houten, who plays the Red Woman Melisandra in global hit TV series Game of Thrones, responded with a series of emojis that, to any mother, made perfect sense: A baby, a rollercoaster, a martini and a love heart.

Pearce, of course, famously starred in The Count Of Monte Cristo, prompting many to wonder if the new bub's name is an adorable throwback.

Considering how excited - and active - the couple have been on social media throughout the pregnancy, it's only a matter of time until we get a sweet snap of little Monte.

Congratulations you two!
