Alexander Skarsgård confirms birth of first child with girlfriend Tuva Novotny

Congratulations are officially in order for Alexander Skarsgård and Tuva Novotny.

While at the Season 4 Premiere of “Succession,” the 46-year-old actor confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that the pair recently welcomed their first child together.

“Thank you very much,” Skarsgård said when congratulated on the newest addition to his family.

The “Big Little Lies” alum also showed off a stuffed animal he received on the red carpet, a potential gift for his little one back home.

The actor didn’t, however, divulge any details about the baby’s name or sex.

The pair raised eyebrows after they were spotted out and about with a baby stroller in New York City back in November.

The couple was spotted out to dinner as a family of three back in November.

Novotny, 43, was photographed pushing the carriage while Skarsgård walked beside her holding a baby wrapped in a blanket.

The outing came seven months after the Swedish actress debuted her baby bump — despite the pair never officially confirming their romance.

Novotny already shares daughter Ella, 16, with ex Nicolai Bjerrum Lersbryggen.

While this is Skarsgård’s first child, Novotny has a 16-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

Back in 2013, Skarsgård got candid about how his own father, Stellan Skarsgård, has changed his outlook on fatherhood.

“I want to beat my dad,” he told Chelsea Handler. “He had eight [kids], so I better get cracking, I guess.”

The twosome have kept their relationship out of the public eye.

He continued, “My dad is 65, and he had a kid four years ago. My dad had kids in the ’70s, the ’80s, the ’90s, the 2000s and the 2010s. Six with mom [My Skarsgård] and two with … his new wife [Megan Everett].”

Prior to his relationship with Novotny, Skarsgård dated some of Hollywood’s finest — including Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth, Amanda Seyfriend and Evan Rachel Wood. 

The final season of “Succession” premieres on HBO on March 26.
