Oh, the joy! The joy! Because the news that Christina Aguilera welcomed her second child on Saturday — a baby girl named Summer Rain, to be specific — wasn't enough to satiate our appetites for adorable tot news, People has reported that Christian Bale and his wife Sibi Blazic have recently welcomed a son to their growing family.

The brand new Bale is the couple's second child after their 9-year-old daughter Emmeline. (Based on their daughter's adorable name, we have high hopes for Baby Number 2's name. Or we could be totally wrong and they could name him Batman. You never know.)

But no matter what name they go with, we can expect Bale to be just as smitten with his new baby as he is with Emmeline. In a 2010 article with Esquire, the American Hustle actor had some aww-inspiring words to say about being a father:

The last few years of my life have been spent just watching animation— for my daughter —and getting a kick out of that... I love anything that she likes. If she's getting a kick out of it, I love it. I find myself tearing up at the most ridiculous things now, sitting next to my daughter while she's watching a movie. Me and my wife look across at each other like, 'Oh my God! Are we really doing this? Yes we are!'

Obviously Batman would be a good dad. Obviously.
