    Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evans Welcome Daughter Ella Betsi


    Ioan Gruffudd and Alice Evans are first-time parents after welcoming a girl! Daughter Ella Betsi Evans Gruffudd arrived at 2:16 a.m. on Sunday, September 6th after 40 hours of labor. She weighed in at 6 lbs., 3 oz and was 21 inches long.
    The couple, who met while filming 2002’s 102 Dalmatians and wed in fall 2007, announced the pregnancy in April.
    Ioan, 35, and Lost actress Alice, 38, knew the sex of the baby prior to delivery, but kept it private. Of preparing for parenthood, the Fantastic Four star said,
    “I’m sure we have no idea what we are heading into. But we both love each other so much and really hope that we will create an environment of love and happiness.”

    Act normal and the crowd will accept you. Act deranged and they will make you their leader

    I can't get over his name, though. Is that the original Welsh equivalent of "Ian Griffith"?

    He was so foxy as Lancelot. That movie was just full of the hotness.

    Congrats to them! I really couldn't place her as being in Lost, but I see who she is now
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    He is so amazingly hot as Horatio Hornblower

    I have the worst impression of his wife after her online fight with his fans and an interview she did with Matthew Rhys for UK Glamour but they seem very happy so good luck to them and Ella.

    Yeah...if they make the rest of the Horratio Hornblower series, I won't complain. He apparently gets more grizzled and House-like as he ages. Yum!

    No, John Griffith. Griffith is just the Anglicised spelling of the same Welsh surname - you pronounce Gruffudd as "Griffith", because that's how it works out in the Welsh alphabet.

    Ioan is pronounced more like Yo-an.

    King Arthur star Ioan Gruffudd and his actress wife Alice Evans are the picture of the perfect family with their new bundle of joy.
    Standing on the doorstep of their Los Angeles home, the Welsh actor cradled five-week-old baby Ella Betsi Evans-Gruffudd.
    She was born on September 6, weighing in at 6lb 3oz and 21inches long, and comes as the couple's first child.

    Doting father: The King Arthur actor smiles as he cradles his daughter

    Gruffudd, 35, who played Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four, and Lost actress Evans, 38, knew the sex of the baby prior to delivery, but they kept it private.
    The pair, who met while filming 2000’s 102 Dalmatians and wed in 2007, announced the pregnancy in April.
    Seen outside their home this week, they looked like the ultimate doting parents as they cuddled baby Ella.
    Delighted father Ioan also planted a kiss on her head as he cradled her in his arms while she sucked on a dummy.

    Sealed with a kiss: Speaking earlier in the summer, the 35-year-old Welsh star said he was looking forward to becoming a father for the first time


    Ioan and Alice at the King Arthur premiere in London in July 2004

    Speaking to People.com in July, the Welsh actor talked about preparing to become a father for the first time.
    He said: 'It's been one long summer because my wife is pregnant, expecting in September.
    'I have basically been the best husband in the world - or trying to be.'
    Gruffudd, who last starred as Tony Blair in W, is also known for his superpower role in The Fantastic Four and as the title role of Horatio Hornblower in the British made-for-TV film series.
    He said that during his English wife's pregnancy, his role changed many times.
    'You go from being lover to husband, lackey, taxi driver. You just have to have so many caps on.
    'Listen, it's a blessing that I am here, at home not working, being able to be there for her.'
    'Still, it's been tough. I'm sure we have no idea what we are heading into.
    'But we both love each other so much and really hope that we will create an environment of love and happiness.'



    The couple, seen here together in 102 Dalmatians, met on the set of the 2000 film before marrying in 2007
