Glee creator Ryan Murphy has become a father for the first time.

The American Horror Story creator and his husband, photographer David Miller, welcomed their first child on Christmas Eve, E! News reported.

Son Logan Phineas Miller Murphy arrived at 9.47am on Monday December 24, weighing 6lbs, 6oz and measuring 21 inches long.

The proud parents sent an email to friends and family announcing their happy news, with a cute picture of the baby boy lying in a Christmas stocking.

Ryan had previously hinted he was to become a dad.

In October he told The Hollywood Reporter he was hoping to start a family soon.

He joked: "I think I'll be incredibly fun and overwhelmed and all about manners. I'm excited to have somebody or something come in and say, 'Really? I don't care what you think. I'm going to do what I want'."
