It's 'Octo-Mel' as Gibson welcomes eighth child



LOS ANGELES - Hollywood icon Mel Gibson has become a father for the eighth time after partner Oksana Grigorieva gave birth to a baby girl, People magazine reported on its website Monday.
A spokesman for Gibson confirmed to the celebrity magazine that Gibson and Grigorieva had celebrated the birth of their first child together last Friday, a girl who has been named Lucia.

"This will confirm that Oksana Grigorieva and Mel Gibson welcomed the arrival of a baby girl named Lucia on Friday, October 30, 2009, at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles," Gibson's spokesman told People.
No further details were available.
Gibson, 53, has seven children with Robyn Gibson, his wife of nearly 30 years who filed for divorce from the Oscar-winning actor-director in April.
Gibson confirmed that he and Grigorieva were expecting their first child together during an appearance on Jay Leno's "The Tonight Show" in May.
"I guess I'm Octo-Mel," Gibson joked at the time.
According to court documents, Gibson separated from his wife in August 2006, less than a month after his infamous drunk-driving arrest in Malibu.
Since 2006 Gibson has kept a low profile, appearing in a handful of cameo roles in television and films. His last film as a director was the 2006 Mayan period epic "Apocalypto."
His last major role as an actor was in the 2002 film "Signs" but he is currently working on "The Beaver" alongside Jodie Foster.
