A dad again at 61! Mel Gibson welcomed his 9th child on January 24. The little guy weighed in at five pounds, five ounces, and is doing well. This is his first child with girlfriend Rosalind Ross, and makes the seventh son for Mel. He has seven children with his former wife, Robyn Moore, (a daughter, Hannah, 36 -- and six sons -- twins Edward and Christian, 34, William, 31, Louis, 28, Milo, 26, and Thomas, 17.) Robyn and Mel separated in 2006, although their divorce was not finalized until 2011. He also has a 7-year-old daughter, Lucia, with his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva. The 61-year-old actor and the 26-year-old champion equestrian vaulter/ writer Ross have been dating for about two years.
Mel and Rosalind named their new baby boy Lars, and in an interview with Mario Lopez, Gibson said that he was doing “just great” and “eating like a little pig”! A new baby is not the only exciting thing going on in Mel's life these days! His latest movie “Hacksaw Ridge”, was recently nominated for six Oscar nominations, including one for best picture, and the best director nomination for Mel. Sources also say that Mel is celebrating his tenth year of sobriety this year, following his arrest in 2006 which caused him to get sober. No matter how you slice it, Mel Gibson is a very busy guy, and we are so excited for him and his happy news!
