Jim Carrey Welcomes a Grandson!

Jim Carrey's family just experienced a very fortunate event.

The 47-year-old actor became a first-time grandpa Friday when his daughter Jane welcomed her first child with her musician hubby, Alex Santana.

Son Jackson Riley Santana was born at 12:28 a.m. in Los Angeles, weighing 7 pounds, 11 ounces and measuring 20 inches long, E! News confirmed.

Carrey revealed that his baby was having a baby in July. "I am very excited," he said at the time. "Jane is going to be a great mom."

Jane and Alex, both lead singers in their respective rock bands, tied the knot November. Jane is Carrey's daughter with first wife Melissa Womer.
