Jamie Dornan just took on yet another huge role: daddy! The Fifty Shades of Grey star and wife Amelia Warner recently welcomed a baby girl, two sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly. UPDATE: Dornan’s rep confirmed the news to Us in a statement: “Jamie and Amelia Dornan are delighted to announce the birth of their baby daughter born at the end of November.” Information on the tyke’s name, and other details were not yet available.
This is the first child for the Irishman, 31, and his wife, an actress who has appeared in movies including Quills and Mansfield Park. Married since April of this year, the two confirmed in June that they were expecting.
The new dad will certainly have his hands full for the next few months. He’s currently filming the movie adaptation of E.L. James‘ Fifty Shades of Grey with costar Dakota Johnson. (Dornan took over the role of Christian Grey from Charlie Hunnam; Johnson plays leading lady Anastasia Steele.)
“I’m a fairly worldly guy,” the former Calvin Klein model told Entertainment Weekly of tackling the part, which requires him to engage in some graphic sex scenes with Johnson. “I grew up in a very liberal place. I’m not saying we had a playroom, but I’m not shocked [by the sex in the book]. It’s essential to tell the story…So it works for me.” See more sexy pics of Dornan here!
The new family of three will be spending the holiday season at a rented home — complete with a Christmas tree! — in Vancouver near the Fifty Shades set, one source tells Us, adding that Dornan is “thrilled” to become a dad.
