Cooper Hefner, son of founder and editor-in-chief of Playboy magazine Hugh Hefner, has become a father for the first time. He welcomed a baby girl with his wife, Scarlett Byrne, who starred in the Harry Potter series.
The couple welcomed their first child on August 24 at 5:23pm in Los Angeles. They named their baby girl Betsy Rose Hefner. How sweet! The couple chose the name Betsy after Cooper grandmother, Betsy Aldridge-Conrad, who meant a great deal to the couple. She passed away in July.

She was a mother, grandmother, sister, friend, and loved one. For the grandchildren of our family she was our Mema. Mema was kindhearted, generous, and loving to all who knew and met her. Each of our lives more wonderful as a result of being blessed with her soul and spirit. For me, Mema was another mother. The two of us shared a bond that filled my life with a joy and warmth that took me home no matter where I was in the world. How lucky we are to have been beneficiaries of her love. How lucky we are to carry her in our hearts each day moving forward. Until we see you again, we love you, with all our hearts, our Mema, my Mema.
Cooper and Scarlett, who portrayed the role of Pansy Parkinson in the Harry Potter franchise films Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Part 2 tied the knot in November 2019. They wed at the Ventura County courthouse in California.
We wish Cooper and Scarlett all the best as they embrace their new role as parents to Betsy.
