Watch: Alexander Skarsgard Says "Big Little Lies" Is "Extraordinary"

Alexander Skarsgård just dropped some big little news.

The actor confirmed he has quietly welcomed his first baby with actress Tuva Novotny, thanking a reporter who congratulated him on the new addition to his family during the New York premiere of Succession's fourth and final season on March 20.

After arriving at Jazz at Lincoln Center with the rest of the cast, Alexander was gifted a stuffed toy for his little one from a fan and proceeded to show it off for cameras.

"I got this on the red carpet," the 46-year-old told Entertainment Tonight, sharing a glimpse of the plushie. "Thank you, thank you."

Alexander did not share when his baby was born, though he and Tuva, 43, were spotted out with a newborn during a Big Apple dinner date in November.

For the most part, the Big Little Lies star has kept quiet about his personal life. However, back in 2017, he did share his hopes to be a family man like his dad Stellan Skarsgård—who is parent to eight children, including It star Bill Skarsgård and Westworld actor Gustaf Skarsgård

"I want to beat my dad," he joked to Chelsea Handler in a Netflix interview. "He had eight, so I better get cracking."

Alexander added, "My dad had kids in the '70s, the '80s, the '90s, the 2000s and the 2010s."

Though the True Blood alum described his childhood home in Sweden as a "madhouse," he wouldn't have traded it for the world.

"I thought it was really cool. It was fun," Alexander shared. "It was lots of people and dogs running around. It was kind of a bohemian household."

Recalling how his cousins lived in the same apartment building and his grandparents' home was across the street, he quipped at the time, "They should make a sit-com about it."
