The Cookstown man and his wife Paula welcomed first child Charlotte Rose Eastwood into the world on Thursday.
Jedi Jim - as he is affectionately known by fans of the show for his Star Wars-like powers of persuasion - now has a young 'padawan' or Jedi pupil, to teach his gift of the gab to.
Charlotte weighed 6lbs 12oz and both mother and baby are said to be happy and healthy.
Devoted husband Jim said he was proud of his wife.
He added: "Paula and I are both really excited about our new baby girl, Charlotte Rose, and are very much looking forward to parenthood. I am very proud of my wife and delighted to have a beautiful daughter.
"We are both so grateful for the support of our friends and family, and would like to take this opportunity to thank the wonderful staff of the Midwifery-led unit at the Craigavon Area Hospital for everything they have done for us."
