The 33-year-old actor and his brunette girlfriend - whose name is not yet known - welcomed their first child into the world earlier this year, an insider has confirmed to Us Weekly magazine.

However, the little one's sex, name and information on the delivery have been kept tightly under wraps ever since.

The couple - who have kept details on their relationship private - set tongues wagging in May when they were spotted out together in New York City with a newborn baby stroller.

The family outing came just five months after Donald's partner was spotted with a burgeoning baby bump in Hawaii in January.

The news that Donald has become a father will no doubt come as a surprise to fans as he's just finished a press tour for his series 'Atlanta', in which he stars and executive produces, and has made no hint that he and his girlfriend now have a child.

The hunk - who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness - also worked as a writer for the NBC comedy '30 Rock' for six years until 2012 before playing Troy Barnes in 'Community'.

But his talents aren't just limited to screen work on and off camera as he's also often in the recording studio, where he performs under the stage name Childish Gambino.

However, as his career accelerates, Donald is determined to keep his private life even more close to his chest and, at one point, even wiped his social networking sites of all his posts.

He said recently: "A lot of people don't understand me, which is good. I don't give a f**k."
