Eddie Redmayne Just Got the Best Father’s Day Gift Ever in the Form of a Newborn Baby and This Is Her Name

Dads the world over are celebrating Father’s Day today, but perhaps no one is having a better day than Eddie Redmayne — he just joined the growing list of first time celeb dads! The Fantastic Beasts star expanded his family with wife Hannah Bagshawe by welcoming their very first child into the world.

Born on Wednesday, the healthy baby girl has been given the name Iris May Redmayne — the perfect moniker for a sweet summer babe, no?

The couple announced the birth in a UK paper, The Times, though the star chatted with E! at this year’s earlier SAG Awards about his impending bundle of joy. “We have this sort of dream of like wooden toys and all that, and everyone’s like ‘Yeah, you always start off like that but you end up with like iPhones!’”

We’re sure you two will figure it out, Eddie. *wink emoji*

Congratulations to you and Hannah both, and HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
