It's no lie: Tom Arnold is finally dad!

The 54-year-old True Lies star and wife Ashley Groussman welcomed a baby boy on April 6, according to People.

The boy, named Jax Copeland Arnold, is not only the couple's first child but also Tom's first child ever. 

“We are still in a bit of shock,” the parents reveal. “It has been a long journey, and the healthy birth of our son is a miracle.” 

Tom married Ashley in 2009, which is his fourth marriage.

He has been open about the fact that he's had trouble conceiving in the past with other women due to his "very low sperm count."

"I didn’t think it was in the cards for me, I’ll be honest, and so I was completely shocked,” Tom said when the couple announced their pregnancy in January. “It’s a miracle.”

“I’ve tried with other people, but since there is a God, we were unable to conceive," Tom had joked. "Now God said, ‘This is it!’” 

This is such good news, and we're so happy that Tom finally has a chance to raise a child.

Tom — who was previously married to Roseanne — appeared in the 2012 movie Hit and Run with Kristen Bell and is also known for The Best Damn Sports Show Period.

Congrats to the happy family!

Well, I'm happy for him! My DH had Rheumatic fever as a child, and was told he'd probably never have kids. So, he was perfectly happy to help me raise my 2 by my 1st marriage. We never used any type of contraception, figuring we never had to. And, 5 years into our marriage, we were shocked and thrilled to find out we were pregnant, against all odds! Our son was born the day before DH's 40th birthday. So, after waiting 40 years for the baby he thought he'd never have, he got a son the day before his 40th. As long as they are breathing, there's always a chance. Wishing Tom and his wife and their precious little one all the best!
