In today’s baby news, Christian Bale just had a new one! He and wife Sibi became parents for the second time, this time to a baby boy. Not much else is known – not his name, when he was born, etc. – and fair enough on that account. Here’s all People managed to find out:
American Hustle star Christian Bale is a dad for the second time after he and wife Sibi recently welcomed their second child, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
The couple are proud parents to a son, a source tells PEOPLE. No further details are available.
Ah, well. Congrats to the happy couple – I’m sure they’re loving the new little one.

God, I know it’s been a cold winter so activities were limited, but the amount of celebrity babies popping up lately is just insane. The latest Hollywood couple to be expecting are Christian Bale and his wife Sibi. They already have an 8-year-old daughter, but she’ll be getting a sibling sometime later this year.
From US Weekly:
“They are truly a supportive couple, he and Sibi are thrilled,” an insider tells Us. “She’s been traveling with him while he’s been touring around for American Hustle.”
Well, that’s nice? What a weird “insider” quote, and certainly nothing you need to be an insider to know, but whatever. Congrats to the happy couple!

Please tell me you’ve followed the whole Batkid story. If you live under a rock and somehow missed the coverage over the weekend, here’s quick recap: 5-year-old Miles Scott is recovering from leukemia (he’s currently in remission) and the Make-a-Wish got the whole city of San Francisco to work together to bring his dream of being Batkid to life, turning the city into Gotham City and putting together all sorts of crimes for him to solve. It was amazing, and a real testimony to the great civic pride in SF.
“I looked on the news and I saw this headline and thought, ‘What’s that?’ And I saw all the pictures of him running around and saving people. It’s so touching.”
“What’s his name, Miles?” continued the actor. “He must have been bewildered! Hopefully, later on, he’ll be able to look back and say, ‘Oh my God, how amazing.’”
Bale even had some plaudits for the social networking that allowed the Batkid story to become such a phenomenon, encouraging people far and wide to show up in San Francisco to cheer Batkid on. “I’m so far behind the times when it comes to things like that, I’m a dinosaur,” Bale admitted. “I’ve never been on Twitter, but how great a thing that it can create something like that! I mean, wonderful. This little kid, oh my God — what a wonderful day for the little fella! It’s just fantastic, seeing all those people who were out there to support it.”
Christian Bale is a bit of a mess at times, but he’s also a really decent guy who’s always connecting with “regular people” and using his celebrity for good. It’s a shame he couldn’t have been part of Batkid’s day, but I’m sure it was amazing anyway.

From KVDR in Denver, Colorado:
“Dark Knight Rises” star Christian Bale visited victims of the Aurora theater shootings at the Medical Center of Aurora South on Tuesday.
Shooting victim Carey Rottman posted to his Facebook page a picture of Bale visiting him in his hospital room.
“Wow!!! Thank you so much for the visit Christian!! What a great guy! Still in shock!,” Rottman wrote.
A source at the hospital said Bale arrived via ambulance around 2 p.m.
OK, so I pretty much take back every single lurid thing I’ve ever said about Christian Bale (there’s probably been, oh, a couple-two-three things on the list), because this is one stand-up thing to do. Sources at Warner Brothers also state that they are not behind Christian’s visit, and that Christian is, and I quote, “is there as himself,” and not on behalf of WB. It seems the more news I hear concerning Bale, the more real of a dude he appears to be.
Way to go, Christian. It’s really, genuinely nice to see you doing your best, trying to make people happy in the aftermath of such a horrific event.

If you guessed it had something to do with fans who would be better off to have screwdrivers driven through their heads, you’d be wrong (I think). If you guessed it had something to do with the ‘Batman’ franchise, and the departed Heath Ledger, then you’d definitely be right, because after watching footage of the previous ‘Batman’ movies, Christian Bale found himself all choked up on stage while talking about how “good” it was to see Heath’s portrayal of the Joker character.
Heath Ledger passed away back in January of 2008, and it’s definitely a mark of how well-loved he was that people are still choking up four-and-a-half years later at the mention of his name or viewing of his former projects.
In all honesty, it’s nice to see Bale showing a side of him that I never thought existed—I definitely assumed he was 100% angst and competitiveness and anger and fan-hatred, and even though it’s sad that we had to experience this Bale because of the death of Heath Ledger, it’s still way more than I ever thought it could be, guys.
