Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell are now parents to a baby boy!

The “The Ides of March” actress, 25, and her actor husband, 27, have welcomed their first child: a “beautiful” son, according to her rep, who confirmed the news to People and Us Weekly.

“Parents and baby are all doing well,” the rep said.

While no name or birth date was made available, Wood did share the happy tidings on Twitter.

“Its a boy!! Song of the day ‘beautiful boy’ #johnlennon,” she wrote Monday afternoon.

Wood and Bell met in 2005 while they were filming Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends” video, then dated on again, off again. The couple married in secret on Oct. 30, 2012.

They announced in January that they were expecting.

“Remember when i said, ‘No baby on the way here,’” Wood tweeted with a picture of the book “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” “Well, I didnt know there actually was!”

“Thanks for all your warm wishes. We are very happy. I’m gonna be a mama!” she added, then said that her song of the day was Guns ‘N Roses’ “Sweet Child of Mine.”

She also shared a few baby-related tweets throughout her pregnancy, including a controversial string of tweets about peanut butter pop tarts and weed and this sweet tweet from July 6:

“How can you be so excited to see someone you have never even met? #preggers,” she asked.


And just last week, she went on a Twitter rant about keeping children and their personal details out of the tabloids.

“I believe kids should be protected and not public domain. When my baby comes I would greatly appreciate no support of any pap photos,” she wrote. “Big thanks to anyone who understands and shows their support. Lots of love... We know it wont eliminate the problem and it comes with the territory and all of that good stuff. But even a little goes a long way.”

“Paps while sometimes harmless can be very rude and become very aggressive and people do get hurt. Its scary to have around a baby,” she added.

She also continued to guard her child’s gender and tweeted to an inquiring fan that, “It will get out either way, so yes we would like to be the ones to break the news when it arrives.”
