"They are truly a supportive couple, he [Christian] and Sibi are thrilled," a source told Us Weekly. "She's been travelling with him while he's been touring around for American Hustle."

He said in 2012: "Nothing can prepare you for fatherhood. It's the best thing ever. I don't want to leave my daughter's side for one second." The star, who married Sibi in 2000, never planned to tie the knot after watching his loved ones go through a bitter divorce when he was younger.

He explained previously: "I never planned to marry. Everyone was divorced in my family so I didn't have very healthy ideas about marriage. Then I met Sibi and suddenly it seemed a fantastic idea."
