Tom Ellis has become a father for the fourth time.

The 'Lucifer' actor - who already has Nora, 18, from a previous relationship and Florence, 15, and 11-year-old Marnie with ex-wife Tamzin Outhwaite - and his spouse Meaghan Oppenheimer welcomed a baby girl into the world via surrogate earlier this week.

Alongside photos of themselves in hospital with the baby, Tom wrote on Instagram on Thursday (09.11.23): “Our daughter Dolly Ellis-Oppenheimer was born on November 8th and within five hours of being alive, she single-handedly ended the SAG strike.

"We love her. Huge thank you to our amazing surrogate [heart emojis].”

Tom and Meaghan married in 2019 after four years together

At the time, the 'Miranda' star shared a photo of himself and his 37-year-old bride standing at the edge of the water next to a canoe and captioned the Instagram post: "My new wife Meaghan Oppenheimer was a little unsure about my choice of transport for the honeymoon.

"Thank you to everyone who made our special day so precious."

Meaghan - who wore a white lace dress by Naeem Khan - shared a different picture from their big day on her own Instagram account and simply captioned it: "Married."

Tom previously admitted his kids weren't particularly "impressed" by his acting career.

He told People magazine: “My kids are the least impressed about any work that I do, which is quite amusing.

“Time and time again, if I’m on the telly, I’ll go: ‘Look, it’s Dad on the telly,’ and they’ll sort of look up, give it a cursory glance and then carry on with what they’re doing ’cause it really doesn’t faze them at all.

“The only thing they really, really liked me doing is a very gentle sitcom that I did back in the UK.

"They are my biggest fans as a dad but not as an actor.”

And Tom's brood were particularly unimpressed if he tried to bring work home with him.

He laughed: “What they don’t like me doing is talking in any sort of characters’ voices. It really doesn’t sit well with them.”
