Jim Carrey’s 22-year-old daughter, Jane, welcomed a son in Los Angeles Friday, a rep for Jim confirmed.
Jackson Riley Santana was born at 12:28 Friday morning and weighed in at 7 lbs., 11 oz. and is 20 inches long, the rep added.
“Something beautiful is right around the corner! ;^)” Jim, 47, posted on Twitter on Tuesday. Friday morning, he added, “right around the corner! ;^)”
Jane (Jim’s daughter with ex wife Melissa Womer) wed the baby’s father, Alex Santana, who is in the band “Blood Money” and goes by the stage name “Nitro,” in November. She fronts her own alternative rock band, The Jane Carrey Band.
After announcing her pregnancy last July, Jim told Us magazine, “I’m very excited. Jane is going to be a great mom.”
Jenny McCarthy, Jim’s girlfriend of five years, told Us magazine earlier this month that she would make an “awesome grandma.”
“The world’s best, is what I say,” Jenny, 37, joked to Us magazine.
She said Jane has been calling her for advice.
“We have an awesome relationship. I consider her my daughter,” Jenny said.
