The Hunger Games actor and his spouse have named their son Matteo Oliver Tucci after welcoming him into the world on Sunday. The little boy was born in London a rep for the star confirmed on Thursday, with Stanley adding his delight at the arrival.

“I believe he is mine. We are all thrilled to welcome him to this cold, cruel world,” he joked to People magazine. “We are all thrilled that he is here and healthy.”

Matteo is the first child for the couple and the 54-year-old’s fourth.

“The sex is of no concern to me. The sex of the baby, that is,” he joked.

Meanwhile Emily, 31, will no doubt be thrilled for her older sister Felicity and Stanley, as it means her 23-month-old daughter Hazel will have a play mate.
