Hollywood actor Brandon Routh and wife Courtney Ford have welcomed their very own 'mini Superman' into the world, as Courtney gave birth to a baby boy named Leo James Routh on Friday (August 10).

The celeb couple welcomed Leo into their glamorous lives, weighing in at 8 pounds. Awwww! The 'Superman' actor told People: "We’re in awe … we can’t take our eyes off him!"

The exciting news was announced earlier this year and Brandon and wife Courtney couldn't be more excited about the good news.

The star, who is currently filming the CBS pilot Partners, told at the time: “Everyone on set keeps asking, ‘Do you have kids?" "And I’ve had to say, "Well, not yet!"

He then added: "It’s the truth. The baby hasn’t been born yet!"

New mum Courtney said that she found it extremely difficult to hide the news before she finally shared the truth with her co-stars, saying: "It started getting difficult to hide what was happening."

She continued, "Flu and food poisoning excuses only work for so long, and by the last episode I could no longer button my pants!"

"I just tried to joke that I had a big lunch."

A huge congratulations to the new family from all at Entertainmentwise!
