Michael, 73, and his second wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, have yet to comment on the happy baby news, as they are traveling abroad. On Tuesday, they visited the Taj Mahal in Agra, India, according to their social media accounts. “At the Taj Mahal with the three other ‘Wonders of the World’ in my life,” CZJ captioned this photo of her husband and their two teenage children, Dylan and Carys.

Cameron, whose mother is Diandra de Morrell Douglas, has been trying to turn his life around after years of drug troubles. He was released from prison in August 2016. A year later, Thibes’s pregnancy was announced.

Michael Douglas has been gearing up for this exciting new role. “I’m going to be a grandfather this month, before the end of the year,” he recently told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m very excited. It’s about time.”

The new baby makes four generations of Douglases. The family just celebrated the 101st birthday of patriarch and acting legend Kirk Douglas.
