Bobby Cannavale blissed out by baby

Bobby Cannavale blissed out by baby

Actor Bobby Cannavale and partner Rose Byrne are "in bliss" following the birth of their son.

The 45-year-old became a father for the second time on 1 February (16) when the Bridesmaids actress gave birth to their first child together, and during a chat with People magazine, the star opened up about how the family is getting on.

"We’re just really, really over the moon,” he grinned. “We’re in bliss right now. She’s incredible — she’s what you’d think she’d be. She’s beautiful and wonderful and he’s a beautiful boy.”

Bobby first shared the happy news during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on 5 February, but during his chat with People, the star revealed his son's middle name is Robin.

"We just love the name,” he added. “His middle name is her dad’s name, Robin, and we liked the way it rang together.”

In even more good news, Bobby, who also has a 20-year-old son called Jake from his marriage to actress Jenny Lumet, recently found out his TV show Vinyl has been recommissioned for a second series.

"I just had a new baby, so I felt very excited to have a job for another year," he quipped.

The HBO music drama also stars Olivia Wilde and is executive produced by Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and legendary director Martin Scorsese, and Bobby recently recalled to Rolling Stone how he tried to impress the singer in their first meeting.

"I remember being really freaked out about what the lighting should look like in my living room," he said of the Skype call. "I was like, 'I want him to think I'm cool.' So I wore black, you know? Black's rock & roll."

However, Mick felt the actor had come across as too intense and it took another face to face meeting and a video of Michael Jackson to seal the deal.

"Michael does the moonwalk and people go crazy, and then Prince is carried through the crowd on the back of his bodyguard," Bobby explained of the clip. "I showed it to Jagger, and he died. We must have watched it 10 times. I felt like, 'Oh, we're good now.'"
