Devon Sawa has become a father for the first time.

A rep for the actor confirmed this week that he and wife Dawni welcomed a baby boy on 9 January. The new arrival weighed 8lbs 1oz and, according to E! News, has been named Hudson Sawa.

Devon hinted at the birth via Twitter on 11 January when he wrote: "The most amazing week ever." He added five days later: "I love him. He's my little pride and joy."

He also joked: "The best thing about the situation I'm in is that finally somebody really enjoys my singing."

Devon will always hold a special place in our hearts thanks to his roles in Casper and Now and Then, which established him as our mega childhood crush.

The now 35-year-old also appeared in another of our childhood favourites, Little Giants, and horror movies Final Destnation and Idle Hands.

Since then, he's starred in Nikita as Owen Elliot and, of course, played crazy fan Stan in Eminem's music video for the song of the same name.

Congrats to Devon! We'll dig out our Casper DVD this weekend to celebrate!
