Alexander Pete Schreiber arrived this morning weighing a healthy 8 pounds, 4 ounces and measuring 22 1/2 inches long.
He is the first baby for both parents who met on the set of The Painted Veil.
The news of Watts’ pregnancy unintentionally slipped through her fingers back in February, when a press release circulated by Italian design house Escada—which provided Watts, 38, with her Academy Award duds—prematurely spilled the beans.
