    Spidey's a Daddy

    The Spider-Baby has hatched.

    Tobey Maguire and his fiancée, jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer, welcomed their first child in Los Angeles Friday, the actor's rep confirmed to E! Online, saying that the camera-ready couple are the "proud and happy parents of a beautiful baby girl."

    Neither the baby's name nor vital statistics have been released, though Us Weekly reported that the stork delivery took place at Cedars-Sinai Hospital.

    The lack of press-release fanfare is nothing new for the low-key couple, who have done their best to keep out of the spotlight since their relationship kicked off in 2003. The 31-year-old papa and his 29-year-old betrothed have officially announced neither their engagement nor the pregnancy.

    Though the expanding belly was a bit of a tip-off.

    It took more than three months for Meyer, who launched her own eponymous line of baubles last year, to confirm that Maguire had indeed popped the question back in April.

    "Let's just say this is truly the best time of my life," she told USA Today in July. "I'm walking on air. I'm getting married, starting a family and have an amazing company."

    The parental pair first began dating three years ago, though they were friends prior to their coupling. Reports have alternately pegged the twosome as having met through Meyer's father, Universal Studios honcho Ron Meyer, or through The Office's Rashida Jones, a friend of Meyer's and former girlfriend of Maguire.

    While the couple has yet to announce a wedding date, it's unlikely to be a spring vow-swap.

    Maguire will be hitting the promotional circuit in a major way in anticipation of his third time donning the Spidey suit. The highly anticipated installment of the comic franchise is darker in tone than the previous two efforts and adds villains Thomas Haden Church and Topher Grace to the mix, as well as introduces Bryce Dallas Howard as love interest Gwen Stacy.

    The flick hits screens May 4, 2007.
