It’s a girl for Simon Pegg and his wife Maureen McCann.
As reported by Celebrity Baby Scoop and contactmusic.com, Pegg became a father for the first time last week, with the arrival of a daughter.
“Hello all,” said Pegg on his blog. “As is being reported by various news sources (don’t know who told them, ‘cos it wasn’t us) we had a little girl last week. Name, weight, time, place etc. all belong to us and we won’t be going out of our way to divulge them anytime soon. Rest assured, everyone is well.”
Pegg is excited about his new status. “It’s the most important thing to me,” he said. “I’m very excited. I want to be a really good dad, a good influence and a good role model – someone my child can turn to, whatever the hell that means…It’s all to do with your attitude and making sure they stay grounded, but making sure they aren’t deprived of anything.”
Born in the U.S., his daughter will be eligible for dual citizenship. “It struck me that, technically, he or she could eventually become President of the United States,” said Pegg. “The potential is there!”
Congratulations to the Peggs!
