Tom Arnold’s wife, Ashley Groussman, has given birth to the couple’s first child, Jax Copeland Arnold.

Baby boy Jax arrived into the world on Saturday morning weighing 8lbs 12oz and measuring 21 inches long.

This is the first child for the 54-year-old True Lies star and his 37-year-old wife.

The couple realised a statement saying: ''We are still in a bit of shock. It has been a long journey and the healthy birth of our son is a miracle.''

Arnold has been very open about his fertility problems which he discovered while in college.

Arnold, who was married three times, including to Roseanne Barr, before tying the knot with Groussman in 2009, previously said: "I've tried with other people, but since there is a God we were unable to conceive. Now God said, 'This is it!"

''We're really happy. I didn't think it was in the cards for me, so I was completely shocked. It's a miracle.''
