Central Nova MP Peter MacKay and his wife Nazanin's son has arrived.

Kian Alexander MacKay was born at 4:52 a.m. (EST) today in Ottawa. He weighs 8lbs 2 oz.

MacKay married Nazanin on January 4, 2012. They announced in September that they were expecting and told The News in January 2013 that it was a boy.

"Thanks to everyone for their thoughts, prayers and support. We are overjoyed with our baby boy," MacKay tweeted.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper also tweeted about the baby's arrival.

"Laureen and I are thrilled to hear the news of Kian Alexander MacKay's arrival. We send our best wishes to Peter and Nazanin."

    Hi Nazanin and Peter: Congratuations. He is so cute and looks older than a newborn. Dick is in hospital so I printed off his picture and took it over last evening. Looking forward to seeing him when he comes home to Pictou County.

    Congratulations! wonderful news! I sincerely hope your love for your little one will help you understand why so many parents, grandparents, and others in Canada want to preserve the environment for all the children present and future, not let it be destroyed by corporations which put short term profits ahead of everything. I know for me it is my very young grandchildren who makes environmental issues very, very real.
