The New York Daily News first reported Oct. 2 that the 28-year-old actor was expecting a baby, his first, with a woman whom he met at an Oscar party.

A rep for Hirsch has not yet responded to The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment. Hirsch has not commented on the news, but on the day the baby was born, he tweeted: "Love to all my followers, beautiful Sunday." A photo of Hirsch cradling a newborn said to be Valor hit the Internet on Sunday.

On the day the Daily News ran its story, Hirsch tweeted: "I have a baby announcement to make. I am in fact @RonanFarrow's biological father," a joke referring to Mia Farrow's shocking revelation about her son with Woody Allen.
