Christian Bale and his wife, Sibi, welcomed their first child, a daughter born in a Santa Monica, Calif., hospital Sunday night. No name has been announced.

The 6'2" Welsh-born American Psycho star, who has finished shooting his leading role in the upcoming Batman Begins, and his wife have been married for five years.

Bale, 31, apparently tried to keep news of her pregnancy secret – until the happy event of the baby's arrival reportedly made him change his mind.
