James Buckley has become a father for the first time.
The 'Inbetweeners' star's Scottish girlfriend, Clair Meek, gave birth to a healthy baby boy in Scotland yesterday (26.10.11) and the couple are "thrilled" with their new arrival, who is yet to be named.
A friend told The Sun newspaper: "Clair was determined she was going to have their baby in Scotland. They are the happiest people in the world. They are so thrilled and proud.
"The two of them are so in love and now they have a beautiful baby son."
James - who plays sex-crazed teenager Jay Cartwright in the TV show - previously admitted he couldn't wait to become a dad and meet his little boy.
He said: "I'm having a little boy. I can't wait for the baby to arrive. It seems like my girlfriend has been pregnant for ages.
"I really can't wait to become a dad."
James revealed in June that the Scottish model was expecting his child, explaining the pregnancy was going "brilliantly".
He said: "Clair and I wanted to let everyone know we are having a baby. Chuffed to say it's going brilliantly. All very exciting with 'The Inbetweeners Movie' out in August and baby out soon after that.
"Can't quite believe my luck. Didn't think I had it in me!"
