James Corden has become a father for the first time
The `Gavin and Stacey` star and his fiancee Julia Carey - who he popped the question to on Christmas Day last year (25.12.10) - welcomed a baby boy into the world at London`s Portland Hospital on 22.03.11.
According to The Sun newspaper, no further details of the early arrival have been revealed and the couple are yet to decide on a name for the tot.
When announcing the pregnancy, the 32-year-old actor-and-comedian admitted he and Julia - who he began dating in September 2009 after being introduced to the blonde beauty by James` former flatmate, actor Dominic Cooper - were "absolutely over the moon" to be expecting a baby.
He said: "It`s true. We`re both absolutely over the moon. We really couldn`t be any happier."
Meanwhile, friends of James - who previously dated `Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps` star Sheridan Smith - recently claimed the baby news couldn`t have come at a better time for the TV star, who is finally ready to settle down.
A source revealed: "He was a bit of a ladies` man in the past but those days are well behind him. He`s at the right age to settle down - and has met the girl of his dreams. He can`t wait to be a dad. Having a baby is a proud moment for James."
