Diego Luna, 28 and his wife, Camila Sodi, 22, couldn't be happier about the birth of their first son, who was born on August 9 in a hospital in Los Angeles. They've named Jerónimo.

“We're really enjoying this moment and we're so grateful to everyone who's been here to share this with us over the past few days,” said the actor in a statement released by his film production company, Canana Films, whom he started with best pal Gael García Bernal (who confirmed this week that he's expecting a child with his girlfriend early next year).

Jerónimo was born at 10:13 A.M., measuring 57 centimeters, and weighing 8.2 lbs., and completely healthy, which has made the parents very happy.

The birth of the baby was confirmed this past Tuesday by Laura Zapata, Sodi's aunt.
