The happy, soon-to-be sleep deprived couple.



David Arquette just hit the reset button, committing himself to 18 more years of child-rearing.

The 42-year-old actor just welcomed a newborn son, Charlie West, with girlfriend Christina McLarty, 33. Charlie was born around noon Monday in L.A., weighing 8 lbs., 7 oz.

“Mom, dad and baby are doing well,” Arquette’s rep tells Us Weekly. “They appreciate all of your well wishes and thank you for respecting their privacy at this time.”

The father of 9-year-old Coco with ex-wife Courteney Cox said he’s more prepared this time around.

“I’ve done it once so there’s not that fear that a first-time parent has because you just don’t know what to expect,” Arquette told People in January after word of the pregnancy got out in November. “You have to have a lot of faith that you will be able to keep them safe and not mess them up too much.”

The Scream 4 actor is stoked to welcome a little boy, telling People he’s looking forward to “playing catch, making [his son] laugh and seeing my girlfriend Christina being a mother for the first time and all the joy and love that it’s going to bring her and me.”
