It's a boy for Tom Arnold!

The 54-year-old star and his wife, Ashley Groussman, welcomed a son on Saturday.

"Actor and comedian Tom Arnold and wife Ashley welcomed their first child today, a baby boy named Jax Copeland Arnold," Tom's rep told Access Hollywood.

Tom revealed he and Ashley were expecting during an appearance on "The View" in January.

"We're really happy. I didn't think it was in the cards for me, I'll be honest, and so I was completely shocked," he said at the time. "It's a miracle."

Tom married Ashley (his fourth marriage) in 2009, and told the ladies of "The View" he suffers from "a very low sperm count," which has caused fertility struggles in all of his relationships.

"It is hard on the women," he said. "I've tried [to have kids] with other people, but since there is a God we were unable to conceive. Now God said, 'This is it!'"

In vitro ultimately served as the solution for the couple.
