Update: The couple have named their baby boy Rocket Zot, a source close to the pair confirms.

They chose the name Rocket because “they just liked it!” the source tells PEOPLE.

The baby’s middle name is Bingle Worthington’s late father’s nickname. The model was “very close” to her dad, Graham, who died in May 2008 from liver cancer, so it’s not surprising she wanted to honor him, the source adds.

Originally posted March 27: Sam Worthington is back to seeing blue.

The Avatar star is a first-time father after welcoming a son with wife Lara Bingle Worthington on Tuesday, March 24 in Los Angeles, PEOPLE confirms.

The Australian actor, 38, and Bingle, 27, never confirmed the pregnancy, much like their decision to keep their wedding under wraps.

Rumors first started swirling that the twosome had tied the knot after Bingle, a model and founder of The Base, was spotted sporting a sparkly ring on her finger, while Worthington stepped out with his own gold band.
