Jim Carrey has become a grandfather for the first time.
His 22-year-old daughter Jane gave birth on Friday to son Jackson Riley Santana on Friday February 26 at 12:28 in Los Angeles.

Posting a photo of the sleeping newborn wrapped in a blanket, proud new granddad Carrey took to his Twitter page to share his happy news.
He tweeted:"Jackson Riley Santana, My grandson, born today! This is what 7lbs 11oz. of California dynamite looks like!"
Jane is Carrey's only daughter, from his first marriage to Melisa Womer.
