The 'Deadpool 2' star welcomed his second child with wife Kathryn Boyd on Christmas Day (25.12.20), who Kathryn branded their "little Christmas evening angel".

Sharing the happy news, Kathryn - who also has Westlyn, two, with Josh, wrote on Instagram: "Chapel Grace Brolin. Born at 6:20 pm on 12/25/20. Our little Christmas evening angel. (sic)"

Josh and Kathryn confirmed the happy news their family was growing in July.

Kathryn wrote: "The Brolin’s are a growin’ !! Our little December babe is on the way.... (sic)"

The happy news comes after the couple welcomed their daughter in November 2018.

At the time of Westlyn’s birth, Josh wrote on social media: "Mama Kathryn was stellar during this miracle birth and Bean is a flawless gem through and through.

"We are blessed to the core and appreciate so much the love and support during this pregnancy from ALL who have partaken in our journey, directly and/or indirectly. (sic)”

Whilst Kathryn added: "Our family's newest (and tiniest) member. Nothing compares to this... nothing. My heart is totally different forever. @joshbrolin thanks for this little life of ours. (sic)”

The actor previously said he was feeling "appropriately nervous" about becoming a dad again, though he was thrilled about the new arrival because he loves the company of youngsters.

He said: "I'm always excited about kids. I prefer being around kids. You know, they have the imagination. They're fun. I've heard other people be like, 'Kid's sitting there, he's staring at nothing, he's slobbering, like, what's the point?'

"The point is to sit there and slobber with him. That's the point."

Josh is also a father to Trevor, 32, and Eden, 26, who he has with his former wife Alice Adair.
