Oliver Hudson Becomes a Dad
Baby boy is actor's first child
The actor and his wife, actress Erinn Bartlett, welcomed a baby boy on Thursday, Aug. 23, a few weeks before his due date, in Los Angeles, reports People.
Wilder Brooks Hudson is the first child for the couple, who dated for five years and were engaged in February 2004. Hudson, 30, and Bartlett, 34, had a Mexican wedding in June 2006.

Although Hudson hasn't achieved the level of fame of his mother or sister, he's been consistently plugging away at his career. He had two failed starring vehicles on TV, the comedic "My Guide to Becoming a Rock Star" and "The Mountain," and had a recurring role on "Dawson's Creek." He took another stab with the CBS pilot "The Weekend," which didn't get picked up.
On "Rules of Engagement," Hudson plays half of a newly-in-love couple alongside David Spade, Patrick Warburton and Megyn Price. The CBS comedy is part of the fall's Monday lineup.
Bartlett has guest starred on "CSI," "Felicity," "Charmed," "Monk" and "How I Met Your Mother." Her film credits include "Little Nicky," "Shallow Hal," "Raising Helen," "The Benchwarmers" and "Rumor Has It..."
