Co Down actor Jamie Dornan has just taken on the biggest role of his life.

The handsome Holywood man, who was recently signed up to star in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, is now the proud father of a baby girl.

A statement said: "Jamie and Amelia are delighted to announce the birth of their baby daughter born at the end of November."

"We won't be making any further comment on specifics."

The 31-year-old actor and his wife were last spotted together in September, not long after it was announced Jamie had landed the role of Christian Grey.

The pair were married in Somerset in April, and it is said that they will be spending Christmas together in Vancouver, where Jamie is currently filming scenes for Fifty Shades.

The actor, who made a name for himself as a Calvin Klein model and for dating actress Keira Knightley, has been spotted alongside US actress Dakota Johnson and director Sam Taylor-Wood during filming for the racy movie, which is set to hit screens in 2015 – most likely on Valentine's Day.

Jamie and Amelia were in good hands throughout the pregnancy with both Jamie's father Jim and step-mother Samina respected gynaecology and obstetrics consultants in Northern Ireland.

Samina carried out the first scan of her grandchild at the Lisburn Road's private 3fivetwo Healthcare clinic.

In June Samina, who is also a consultant sub-specialist in maternal foetal medicine in the regional unit at the Royal Maternity Hospital, told our sister paper Sunday Life they were excited about being grandparents again.

"Jim and I are delighted that our third grandchild is on the way," she said.

"The early wellbeing scanning was a beautiful and emotional experience for all present."
