LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- And baby makes three for Josh Lucas and wife Jessica!
Josh, 41, and his wife welcomed baby boy Noah Rev Maurer on Friday in New York City, the actor’s rep told People.
Noah weighed in at 9 pounds, 4 ounces.
This is the first child for Josh and Jessica, who married in March after announcing their engagement just three months prior.
During an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” in January, Josh revealed he had proposed to Jessica thanks to a strange encounter with a wild animal he experienced while shooting a low-budget flick in Big Sur, Calif.
After a long day of filming, Josh said he had hiked up a hill to the couple’s trailer in the wee hours of the morning, sans flashlight, and encountered a mountain lion – a danger his then-girlfriend had warned him about (to no avail) the day before.
When he got back to Jessica, Josh said he realized he’d found his match in love.
“I decided in that moment, truly in that moment, that this woman was the woman for me,” he told Jay at the time, of when he returned to the trailer following the close-call with the beast.
