Owen Wilson and Jade Duell's camp wasn't kidding earlier this week about the couple's baby being "due any day" -- the two rolled out their own version of Maui wowie Friday morning, welcoming a son at the actor's oceanfront home in Hawaii.

Duell's pregnancy went public Monday via Us magazine, which said "Little Fockers" star Wilson and his girlfriend of a year wanted "to do everything as natural as possible."

Indeed, it was a water birth with two midwives and no meds, the Star said Saturday, quoting an insider as saying, "Owen has been doing a celebratory hula dance all afternoon!" Us reported the birth Friday. 

Ford Linton Wilson reportedly weighed in at 6 pounds, 13 ounces, the Star said.

Actress Kate Hudson, a former girlfriend of Wilson's, was also outed this week as being pregnant.

[For the record, 5:35 p.m.: An earlier version of this post was unclear about the source for the baby's weight. That information is from the Star.]
