Congratulations to Omar Gooding on the birth of his son, Omar Dari Gooding Jr. The actor took to Instagram to announce his son’s arrival on Friday.

“Daddy Chronicles,” Omar shared with fans. The celebrity dad was ready for the labor and delivery experience and respected his girlfriend Mia Vogel’s wishes to not be on camera. “We are in this thing,” Omar said in reference to his presence in the labor and delivery room. “She don’t want to be on camera,” Omar said of his child’s mother.


The actor also uploaded pictures of his son shortly after his arrival. “Aaand BOOM,” he exclaimed. “GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME! Welcome OMAR DARI GOODING JR 7lbs 4ounces at 36 weeks!!! #PROUDPAPA.”

Omar Gooding has portrayed several roles while working in Hollywood. From the hardcore gangster in Baby Boy to the loving father in the Bounce series Family Time, the star father has quite the diverse resume.

“I’m most proud of my body of work,” Omar said during an interview with Black Men’s Dossier. “I try not to compromise. I try not to do something just for the money. I stay selective and picky with the roles that I choose. When someone says ‘Keep up the good work.’ I take that to heart, and that means people are enjoying the choices I’ve made.”
