It looks like Christmas came early for Rove McManus and his wife Tasma this year—the couple welcomed their daughter, Ruby Aurelia McManus into the world on Monday, December 16 at 9:01 a.m., two weeks ahead of her January 2 due date.

Rove posted an adorable picture of his newborn daughter with the caption: “Just after 9am Monday morning, I got this early Christmas present. Her name is Ruby. #daddy”

In a statement to the Sydney Morning Herald, the Australian funnyman said: “While she arrived slightly earlier than expected, she is healthy and more importantly it means she'll be here to spend Christmas with us, which is the best present you could wish for.”

He added, “I feel I have entered a new life that consists of mainly feeding and wiping. But I couldn't be happier… It's still hard to believe she's here. It was love at first sight. She is a beautiful, life-changing bundle."

Congratulate the happy couple in the comments and make sure to follow Rove for more updates on his beautiful family!
