‘Gavin & Stacey’ Star James Corden is a Proud Papa

James Corden and Julia Carey

Amidst all of the sad news today (March 23), there is some cause for celebration. James Corden, a.k.a. Gavin & Stacey‘s Smithy, and his fiancée, Julia Carey, are the new parents of a son, The Daily Mail reports. The pair have yet to reveal the name for the new addition to their budding family, who arrived yesterday (March 22).

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
