Lord Of The Rings beauty Liv Tyler is a first-time mother, after giving birth to a boy early yesterday morning (14DEC04).

The baby, who has yet to be named, was born at 4:11am at an undisclosed New York hospital weighing at 8 pounds (3.63 kilograms).

America's PEOPLE magazine - which reports that Tyler "had a relatively short labour and easy delivery" - quotes the actress as telling a pal, "My baby is so handsome I can't stand it. He also has full lips."

Her publicist STEPHEN HUVANE says, "They're thrilled. And they hope to have a name soon."

This is the first child for Tyler, 27, and her English rocker husband ROYSTON LANGDON, 32.

Tyler is the daughter of Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler and former model Bebe Buell.
