Irish comedian Chris O'Dowd and wife Dawn O'Porter have welcomed a little boy into the world.

Baby Art will reportedly follow in the footsteps of his author mother with the combination surname of O'Porter.

Fans of the humorous couple will be delighted to hear the news - but may be astonished that the arrival has been kept under wraps for an entire week.

The couple of two and a half years updated their online Twitter followers earlier this evening in a witty fashion that echoed the way in which they broke Dawn's pregnancy news some months ago.

The proud father posted a photo mock-up of what his newborn son might look like.

"It's a boy! @hotpatooties & I would like to introduce Art O'Porter, our gorgeous baby. Well, I'm pretty sure he's ours," tweeted O'Dowd.

Yummy Mummy Dawn followed this post with a gushing tweet of her own.

"Thanks all. He is one week old today. It's been a beautiful week. I think we'll definitely keep him;)," she wrote to her 386,000 followers.

Roscommon-born actor O'Dowd revealed his wife's pregnancy news last August as part of his Ice Bucket Challenge video online.

The ‘Moone Boy’ star (34) completed the charity challenge, and turned the camera to his wife as he nominated ‘Baby O’Porter’ to get dunked in water next.

Author and TV presenter Dawn (35) proceeded to pour water over her visible baby bump as the couple laughed.

The couple married in August 2012 after they met at Dawn's 30th birthday party.
