David Arquette has become a father again.

The 42-year-old Scream actor has become dad to Charlie West with TV reporter girlfriend Christina McLarty.

"Mom, dad and baby are doing well," David's representative told People.

"They appreciate all of your well wishes and thank you for respecting their privacy at this time."

David has nine-year-old daughter Coco with ex-wife Courteney Cox, who is currently seeing Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid.

The actor previously told US Weekly about his excitement at "seeing my girlfriend Christina being a mother for the first time and all the joy and love that it's going to bring her and me".

The couple have been dating on and off since 2011.

David and Courteney split after nearly 14 years of marriage.
