The 47-year-old actor's daughter, Jane Carrey, 22, gave birth to her first child on Friday, the star's rep confirmed to Access Hollywood.

Jackson Riley Santana was born to Jane, a singer, and her husband, Alex Santana, also a musician, on Friday at 12:28 AM in Los Angeles, the rep confirmed.

The baby weighed 7 lbs., 11 oz, and he was 20 inches long.
