At the Screen Actor's Awards in January, the 34-year-old actor told ET he and his wife had decided not to find out the baby's sex, which had made it difficult to settle on a name as they prepared for the arrival of their first child. 

"In the middle of the night last night -- we arrived from London -- at 4 in the morning we started mumbling names to each other," the Academy Award winner recalled at the time. "We're two of the most indecisive people in the world!"

Indecisive they may be, but they got there in the end and Iris is a lovely name. Congratulations to the proud new parents!
