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.
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!
