The Shaun of the Dead star's wife, Maureen McCann gave birth to a baby girl, his rep confirms to Usmagazine.com.

Pegg, who announced McCann was five months pregnant in February, is already godfather to Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's five-year-old daughter Apple.

Guess these famous babies.

The star, who most recently appeared in the new Star Trek reboot, has been ready to be a doting dad for awhile.

"It's the most important thing to me," he has said. "I'm very excited. I want to be a really good dad, a good influence and a good role model – someone my child can turn to, whatever the hell that means... It's all to do with your attitude and making sure they stay grounded, but making sure they aren't deprived of anything."

Pegg, 39, and his wife have been married since July 2005.
