IT Crowd and Bridesmaids star Chris and TV presenter Dawn announce the arrival of their baby boy

Dawn O'Porter and Chris O'Dowd have announced the birth of their first child, a baby boy. 

The news was announced by Chris posting a cleverly Photoshopped image of a baby featuring his trademark beard and Dawn's bobbed haircut, with the caption “Well, I'm pretty sure he's ours”. Chris also confirmed the baby's name as Art O'Porter. 

Dawn then retweeted Chris's picture, and wrote: “Thanks all. He is one week old today. It's been a beautiful week. I think we'll definitely keep him ;)”

The couple married in a private, low-key ceremony in 2012. Hopefully we'll see more of new baby Art in the coming weeks.
