A representative for the actor confirmed to TODAY Wednesday that the star of films like "Black Hawk Down" has welcomed his first child, with girlfriend Tamsin Egerton.

There's no word yet on the baby's sex or name. The couple announced that they were expecting back in July.

Hartnett, 37, and Egerton, 27, met in 2011 while filming "The Lovers." The actor has remained mum about the details of their relationship, and explained why in an interview with USA Today in May.

"I purposefully didn't want people to know too much about my personal life because I think a lot of people give it away for free," he said. "I think if you spend too much time courting people's attention into your personal life, you lose your ownership of it."
