Mel Gibson Welcomes Eighth Child

Actor's girlfriend gives birth to baby girl Lucia

Mel Gibson is officially an octodad.

The actor's girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, gave birth to baby girl Lucia at a Los Angeles hospital on Friday, a rep for Gibson said. The child was his first with the Russian beauty.

Grigorieva, 39, gave birth a few weeks before her December due date.

Gibson, 53, announced the brunette songbird's pregnancy on "The Tonight Show" in May when he revealed that he and his soon-to-be-ex wife Robyn had been separated for "three years." She filed for divorce from the actor in April after 28 years of marriage.

The couple has seven kids together -- six sons and one daughter.

"I guess I'm Octo-Mel," he joked on the show.

Grigorieva has a 12-year-old kid with "James Bond" star Timothy Dalton.
