12 AUGUST 2003
The inimitable Bridget Jones star Colin Firth has reason to celebrate after his wife gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. Little Mateo is Colin and Livia's second child together, as they already have a two-year-old called Luca.

Colin had to miss the premiere of his new film, What A Girl Wants, so as to rush to his wife's bedside. And though he has yet to make any public statement about the new arrival, when he does, it's sure to be memorable.

When Luca arrived, Colin appeared on an American chat show and gushed over his new baby, albeit in somewhat unusual terms. "He looks a little bit like a turnip at the moment," said the 42-year-old. "But I mean a beautiful turnip - as root vegetables go... he's adorable!"

No doubt he and Olivia are feeling just as jubilant about the latest addition to their growing clan. Colin also has a 12-year-old son, Will, with actress Meg Tilly.
