Mr Big welcomes a baby boy!

Chris Noth could be 100 years old and the world would still think of him as Mr Big. With news he and longtime girlfriend, Tara Wilson, welcomed a baby boy on Friday, his new nickname should be Mr Big Daddy.

Joining a cavalcade of celeb babies with odd-but-cool names, Noth and Wilson gave their little one the moniker Orion Christopher Noth.

I'm sure mirroring the brightness of the celestial body that shares his name, the light of the couple's life arrived at a healthy 7 pounds and 10 ounces.

The 53 year-old Law & Order: Criminal Intent actor is a first time dad -- and while filming the "Sex in the City" movie, the joy of hitting the big screen with Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw is now surpassed only by the thrill of becoming a father.

In fact, SJP just told Entertainment Tonight, "I'm thrilled for him because I think, first of all, he's going to make a wonderful, wonderful father... He found a lovely lady to have a child with. It's the perfect time for him and I think he's very ready."
