Malcolm-Jamal Warner has become a first-time dad at 46. According to the NY Daily News, the “Cosby Show” actor welcomed a child just last week, which is the first positive news we’ve heard concerning anyone involved with the hit sitcom in quite some time.

Phynjuar Thomas, a friend of Malcolm’s and mother of actress Michelle Thomas who dated the actor and played his girlfriend Justine on “The Cosby Show” from 1988 until 1990, spoke to the paper about the news.

“I am elated over Malcolm’s new child,” she said. “I love him. I hope they name the baby after me. Phynjuar is a beautiful name.”

The mother of the child is reportedly an attorney from Bridgeport, CT, and she and Malcolm are said to be “very much in love.”

So far, Malcolm hasn’t shared the news on social media, but we’re looking forward to seeing the first photos of his first child. Congrats to him and his partner!
