Mel Gibson, 61, and Rosalind Ross, 26, welcomed son Lars Gerard


Mel Gibson has become a father for the ninth time. How does that make you feel? I mostly feel sorry for his girlfriend, Rosalind Ross. Mad Mel is 61 years old and Rosalind is 26 years old. That’s right, she’s not even half his age. Rosalind and Mel started dating in 2015 and he started to take her to parties and awards shows last year. They announced they were expecting back in September, right as Mel began promoting Hacksaw Ridge. And now they have a baby boy.

It’s a boy for Mel Gibson! The actor and Hacksaw Ridge director welcomed his first child with girlfriend of two years Rosalind Ross, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Son Lars Gerard Gibson was born Friday, Jan. 20, in Los Angeles, weighing in at 5 lbs. 5 oz.

“They’re thrilled and Lars is adorable. Their family is all around them and Mel is over the moon. They’re home and everybody is healthy and happy!” a source tells PEOPLE.

Already a father of eight kids, Gibson, 61, confirmed the pregnancy in September.

[From People]

Lars Gerard Gibson… hm, to be fair, it has a nice flow. “Lars Gerard” sounds like a German poet, or at the very least, a Dutch rock star. I sort of wonder if one or both of those names are family names on either side. Maybe on the ninth kid, Mad Mel let his baby-mama choose the name? Anyway… congrats to Mad Mel and Rosalind. I hope this relationship doesn’t blow up spectacularly now that there’s a baby involved.

    The rule isn’t half your age MINUS seven Mel.

    Also, please, hands to yourself and feet on the ground.

    He was so hot in Mad Max. Why’d he have to go ruin it by being an arse?

    • SilverUnicorn says:

      An anti-Semitic, woman-batterer arse. I wanted to point that out Detritus! He was so hot in Lethal Weapon too. His orribile inside is now showing.

      • detritus says:

        ha, I used arse because i’m trying to cut out the cussing a bit.
        he’s pretty awful in all ways, and it does look like the outside is wearing away and the inner horrible is showing.

  2. Shambles says:

    Um. Yay?

    Poor kid. Rosalind chose to create life with a well-documented psychopath.

    • INeedANap says:

      I get the feeling the kid is going to be spared a lot of rage because it’s a boy. Men like him have serious “daughter disappointment”.

      It enrages me that Mad Mel is being welcomed back into Hollywood. Hacksaw Ridge wasn’t even good.

  3. molly says:

    He’s got nine children? God help them. Hope they get more of their three mother’s traits than his racist abusive misogynistic ways. Wonder how long till she runs for the hills?

    • Jeesie says:

      Eh, his first wife is a religious fanatic who condoned his misogyny, and the other two hooked up with him knowing he’s a raging anti-Semite. No excuses for his abusive behaviour, but no one here is fit to be a parent. Best case the younger children are disgusted by both their parents and cut them off as soon as they can.

      • SusanneToo says:

        I remember an interview in which he condemned his first wife, Robyn, and said she was going to hell because she wouldn’t join his crackpot fundamentalist church. Sounds like she was NOT the religious fanatic.

      • SilverUnicorn says:

        She was not a religious fanatic, just religious.
        When Mad Max beyond thunderdome came out he said his wife wanted to separate because he was off the rails and drunk most of the time. Interview is too old so I don’t think it is possible to find it online or I would link it here.

    How are people still having unprotected sex with this lunatic??

    Good luck, I guess.

  5. OSTONE says:

    Ladies, not everything in this life is money. You couldn’t pay me enough to bed Mel Gibson, especially knowing how messy, racist, anti-Semite he is. Plus he is gross on the eyeball so.. congrats?

    • African Sun says:

      @OSTONE LMAO!!

    • detritus says:

      What about young Mel, before we all knew he was shit?

      • SilverUnicorn says:

        That has worn off about 15 years ago….

      • detritus says:

        I was thinking like 20 years ago. Um, sadly, I’m actually 30 years ago.

        When did it become public he was a shitbird? Around the first Christ movie he made? Before?

        I’m mostly sad all the loves of my teens are varying shades of horrible. Gavin, Depp, Pitt ain’t looking too pretty figuratively either.

      • SusanneToo says:

        Wore off when he started the Lethal Weapon crap. He made some good films in Australia.

  6. Donna says:

    What is it with these old goats knocking up women younger than some of their children? Do they not know how to wrap their Willie? Were their ridiculously young girlfriends never educated on birth control?

  7. K.T says:

    PR crisis management: inure your talent from almost all ethical AND legal responsibilities by *coersion*, *blackmail* and from being helped by the sadly bendable morality of a starstruck/power-observant law enforcement…

    Talent: If you’re famous & have committed crimes, let your PR team/lackeys lay the claims – they may create a ‘Robinhood’ or a ‘Second Chance’ narrative. ‘Also: creating ‘Alternate Realities’ is a classical public relations and crisis management move.

  8. K.T says:

    result: Controlling Mel is finally asked to be responsible for growing bad behaviour and felonies (tempered by a forgiving LE)

    Tries the usual tactic of controlling another person (very young female but it’s socialised as okay or even a celebration become there’s another baby to control!) and stroking the audience of evangelical & celebrity-obsessed folks who keep forgiving racism, sexism and just weirdo behaviour

  9. Embee says:

    He will have to be taken out of the nursing home for the kids graduations if he keeps making babies

  10. Kym says:

    God help her.

  11. trollontheloose says:

    it’s ok for men to have multiple baby mamas but it’s not ok for women to have multiple baby daddies (his religious thoughts of course).

  12. Lucy2 says:

    Interesting how his hyperreligious beliefs don’t seem to have a problem with divorce or knocking up various young women outside of marriage…
    Also, he’s old enough to be her grandfather.

  13. Melody says:

    Well, that makes 11 kids if you count Jodie Foster’s boys. The guy’s getting into Duggar territory.

  14. spidey says:

    I used to think he was great until around the time that it got known that he didn’t approve of contraception. Wonder if he would have felt differently if he was the one to bear the kids?

  15. Margo S. says:

    Geez. They’ve only been dating for two years and already have a kid AND are 35 years apart? I wish them the best all the same!

  16. wolfie says:

    Another kid to fight with the other 8 for whatevers left over of Mel’s estate.

  17. mary simon says:

    Yet another baby for Mel. He and Rosalind must have been to jacuzzi. Will the baby be baptized at Mel’s own private Catholic church, where Mel and his father are the self-ordained super popes?
