Mel Gibson is on a roll! The A-list Hollywood actor has become a father for the ninth time after his current girlfriend Rosalind Ross welcomed a baby boy, as People magazine reports.
Mel and Rosalind named their bundle of joy Lars Gerard Gibson. Lars is Rosalind’s first child, while Mel pretty much knows the drill as this is his 9th time becoming a father. Way to go, Mel!
“They’re thrilled and Lars is adorable. Their family is all around them and Mel is over the moon. They’re home and everybody is healthy and happy,” one insider told People.
“She has her own life, but also seems to enjoy Mel’s … They are very much on the same page,” another source revealed.
Mel and his ex-wife Robyn Moore were married for almost 30 years and the former couple have seven children together, ranging in age from 17 to 36. The two separated back in 2006, while Robyn filed for divorce in April 2009, citing “irreconcilable differences”.
An interesting fact about this divorce is that, since they did not have a prenuptial agreement, Moore was awarded $425 million, which was, at the time, the biggest divorce settlement in Hollywood history.
Mel also has a daughter called Lucia with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Lucia was born in 2009.
Keeping Low Profile And Working On Himself
The 60-year-old actor recently revealed he has been trying to keep low profile over the last decade and said he had done a lot of self-improving lately.
“I’ve done a lot of work on myself these last 10 years,” said Mel. “I’ve deliberately kept a low profile. I didn’t want to just do the celebrity rehab thing for two weeks, declare myself cured and then screw up again.”
“I think the best way somebody can show they’re sorry is to fix themselves and that’s what I’ve been doing and I’m just happy to be here. He who tries, gets. If you try, you get somewhere.”
