Star Trek’s new Scotty is a daddy. Today Simon Pegg confirmed that last week he and his wife Maureen brought a new sci-fi nerd into the world, a girl. The family is keeping more details to themselves, but Pegg says all are fine. The baby, born in Los Angeles, is the couple’s first child.
The new Pegg
The Pegg family only announced the pregnancy in February, and only made the announcement today because it was picked up by Us Magazine Pegg then wrote on his blog:
As is being reported by various news sources (don’t know who told them, ‘cos it wasn’t us) we had a little girl last week. Name, weight, time, place etc all belong to us and we won’t be going out of our way to divulge them anytime soon. Rest assured, everyone is well.
Thanks for all your well wishes though, they are greatly appreciated.
Pegg has been preparing himself for fatherhood, in an interview earlier this month he stated:
It’s the most important thing to me. I’m very excited. I want to be a really good dad, a good influence and a good role model – someone my child can turn to, whatever the hell that means… It’s all to do with your attitude and making sure they stay grounded, but making sure they aren’t deprived of anything.
If you’ve got the money to give them things, and it’s a positive thing, then you should do it – education, whatever they need.
Although Pegg lives in London, the baby was born in Los Angeles, something Pegg said he was excited about as she will have dual citizenship. Pegg noted:
It struck me that, technically, he or she could eventually become President of the United States. The potential is there!

TrekMovie sends out a big congratulations to Simon and Maureen!
first? congrats to our new scotty and his family!
Nice! Congrats to the new dad and mom.
CONGRATS SIMON!!! You’re the FIRST!
Congratulations, to both you and your wife. These will be the best years of your life, but prepare to never sleep again. :)
Congrats Simon!!! Glad everyone is doing well.
Having become a proud papaw of a little girl just a few months ago, I can imagine how the Peggs feel. There is nothing more precious than a daughter or a granddaughter. Being the father of 2 sons did not in any way prepare me for a little girl.
Here’s hoping their little one is as happy and well adjusted as our granddaughter is- sleeps all night since the second week, has a smile for one and all, and is perfect in every way.
Congratulations, Mr. Pegg!
#6 & 7 – WTF?
At #6 and #7… grow up.
Congratulations to Mr. Pegg and his wife :)
the original offending 6/7 posts (and poster) are gone…that was inappropriate
Congratulations to Simon and Maureen on the birth of their daughter!
Congrats and welcome to the ‘no sleep’ club. Do what you can for Maureen and the little one while your busy. A daughter is special indeed for a dad, and you will never, ever be the same!
Good Luck and Enjoy!
PS: Skip the Diaper Genie and just take out the garbage more often ;-)
Congratulations to the Pegg family! Delighted for you all.
Congrats Simon, I wish you a happy long life with your family!
Congratulations, Simon Pegg! I wish your family all the best.
Couldn’t possibly think of a better, cooler dad to have. Apart from my own. Congratulations, Simon!
CONGRATULATIONS! Live long and prosper!
If you are born in the USA, no matter where you parents are from you are a US citizen.
Wow. Awesome news. Congrats and glad everyone is doing well. Sounds like he will make an excellent dad.
Congrats on the new addition to the family!
Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Pegg. I hope she gets your sense of humour.
Awesome indeed!! I wish Maureen and Simon all the best. C
Mazel tov on the most life-changing, awe-inspiring, mind-blowing experience a mortal can go through. And it never ends.
That’s so cool! My wife and I had our baby girl today as well!
All the best, Simon and Maureen!
@27: Then what the heck are you doing on the internet? Don’t you have better things to do right now? :-)
Must have been a story there that I missed that made me the new #7. Nothing inappropriate about my little Addi, except for the occasional spitup….
Congrats to 27.
I’ll admit I’m dying of curiosity to know what name he picked. I’m hoping he had enough sense to stay away from some of the really outlandish names Hollywood celebrities have saddled their kids with including Pilot Inspektor and Moxie Crimefighter.
Congrats Pegg family!!! =D
Can’t think of a COOLER DAD!!!
27. Mazel tov to you too, Eldon! What a joy. Is she your first?
I suppose it’s tough to foist the name CmdrR on a girl. So, Peggy. That’s if you’re listening to me, which you’re obviously not.
So… aw hell… Congratulations!!! Best!
Such a lucky little girl!!
BEAM ME UP DADY!!..EJEJEJ
