David_240 Rules of Engagement star David Spade is a dad.

The comedian became the father of a baby girl born on Aug. 26 in Missouri to his ex-girlfriend, Playboy Playmate Jillian Grace, reports People.

"David and Jillian have been in close contact throughout her pregnancy and he plans to go see the baby during his first break from shooting Rules of Engagement," says the actor’s rep.

Spade, 44, dated Grace briefly in 2007. Earlier this year, she announced she was pregnant with the actor’s baby. Spade, who is 21 years older than Grace, said he’d take responsibility if the paternity test proved he was the father of the child.

Spade has confirmed that the DNA results were positive. He is now a first-time parent.

No other details, including the baby’s name, were provided.
