Who's your daddy? Mel Gibson, baby! Mel Gibson!

MadmelMel Gibson's girlfriend, Oksana Grigorieva, gave birth to a healthy baby girl Friday, according to That makes Gibson, 53, a father of eight, seven of them with his estranged wife, Robyn, who filed for divorce in April.

Oksana, 39, is a second-time mom; her son with then-boyfriend Timothy Dalton is now 12.

We can't even imagine having that kind of time. Seriously, we're tired just from totaling up the kids, much less taking care of them.

No word yet on the little girl's name. And we wouldn't particularly care, except we just learned that Mel's middle name is Columcille, and now we're jumpy. Perhaps new mom Oksana would sing us all a lullaby to soothe us before bed?

(Anybody else just hear the new baby start crying?)
