Baby boy for King Kong star Black

Speaking at the Los Angeles premiere of his new comedy Nacho Libre earlier this week, the 36-year-old said he intended to be "the best daddy on the planet".

"I've got the babe back home safe and sound," he told the Access Hollywood TV programme. "I'm anxious to get back."

Black and Haden, the daughter of jazz musician Charlie Haden, wed in March. The baby's name was not disclosed.
