Actor Michael Douglas just became a grandfather for the first time at age 73. His son, Cameron Douglas, welcomed a baby with girlfriend Viviane Thibes.

Michael Douglas, who is known for his roles in The Streets of San FranciscoFatal Attraction, and Basic Instinct, has three children.

While married to Diandra Luker, Michael had son Cameron in 1978, then welcomed two more children with Catherine Zeta-Jones in the early 2000s.

Cameron, who is now 39, followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, Kirk Douglas, becoming an actor as well.

He’s been in a number of films, including Mr. Nice GuyIt Runs in the Family, and National Lampoon’s Adam & Eve.

Beginning in 1999, Cameron started running into trouble with the law for his drug habits, but on August 1, 2016, he was released early from his prison sentence.

Since his release, Cameron has appeared publicly a number of times and updated his social media fans about his life — and now about his newest addition.

Late at night, on December 18, 2017, Cameron Douglas shared the above photo on his Instagram account.

He wrote, “Today my appreciation for Mother’s all over the world has reached new heights…today I took part in a miracle as my baby girl was introduced to the world through a beautiful Amazon warrior…I’m so proud of you @vivianethibes. #iloveyou”

Cameron’s girlfriend, and the mother of the baby, Viviane, shared her thoughts on the new baby four days before giving birth.

She wrote:

As I come to the end of my pregnancy filled with gratitude for the love and support of my friends and family, I reflect on the importance of regular yoga practice.

Through my practice I was able to find balance and serenity during challenging times. Like a tree, we want to have strong roots in order to stay grounded.

So whatever is your source of strength, nourish it because you will need it when things get out of your control.

Cameron and Viviane have been open about the pregnancy since the beginning, sharing photos together as the baby grew.

It’s clear they were both looking forward to becoming parents!

December is a big month for birthdays in the Douglas family.

On December 9, Kirk Douglas turned 101 years old!

Cameron’s birthday was on December 13, just five days before his daughter was born.

Now, the family will have another December birthday to celebrate!

Viviane and Cameron haven’t shared any pictures of their baby girl, but there’s no doubt she’ll be adorable.

We also don’t know the little one’s name, but hopefully they’ll share it with their fans soon!

It seems like now would be a really great time for Cameron, Michael, and the baby to recreate this photo!

Maybe Kirk could even be in it, too.

What a wonderful family this little baby has to grow up in.

And who knows, maybe she’ll follow in the footsteps of her father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, and pursue a career in acting!

Congratulations to the new parents!
