Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire welcomes a baby boy

Actor Tobey Maguire is the proud father of a new baby boy after his wife Jennifer gave birth on Friday.

Early reports say that mother and baby are healthy and happy, even if the new tot has yet to be given a name.

It is the second child for Tobey, 33 and Jennifer, 31 who already have a two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Ruby Sweetheart.

The Spider-Man star met his jewellery designer wife in 2003 while filming Seabiscuit. Jennifer is the daughter of Ron Meyer, president and chief operating officer of Universal Studios. She made a name for herself, however, creating jewellery pieces for celebrity clients, one which was famously used in Jennifer Aniston's movie, The Break-Up. The talented duo married in Hawaii in 2007 after dating for three years.

News of the pregnancy broke last year with a source saying: ‘They couldn’t wait to expand their family’. Even toddler Ruby was thrilled about becoming a big sister with her father saying: ‘Ruby’s not really jealous, this will be like having another little playmate.’

Maguire will be seen next in the third instalment of Spider-Man, slated for release in 2011.
