Penny Dreadful actor Josh Hartnett and his longtime girlfriend, Tamsin Egerton, have welcomed their first child, a representative for the couple confirmed to Today. The duo, who have been dating since they met while filming The Lovers in 2010, announced they were expecting in July.

Despite nearly 5 years of dating, the celeb lovebirds have managed to keep their relationship tightly under wraps. And that's no accident.

"I purposefully didn't want people to know too much about my personal life because I think a lot of people give it away for free," Hartnett told USA Today in May. "I think if you spend too much time courting people's attention into your personal life, you lose your ownership of it. That's why I make sure my life is my own. I was not a dumb kid. I was a little bit wary of this business. I saw what it could do to people pretty quickly."

We're still anxiously awaiting more details on the little one, but what we do know is that he or she is going to be quite the cutie.

Congrats to the new parents!
