The next photo shows the results of their night in Sin City.

The happy couple are pictured with their son Joshua adoring their latest addition to the family, Gwendolyn, who was born on Friday morning, June 15, at their home with a doctor and midwife on hand, according to people.

James followed that up by adding a photo of their baby girl as a newborn and then a more recent image of her, showing off what her father called a “big personality.”

“You are a born comedienne with what appears to be a genius brain at your disposal…and an iron will. And when you smile… it’s like a glitter bomb of joy in the hearts of everyone around you,” he described Gwendolyn on her fourth birthday last summer.

For the latest image, James captioned “#MadeinVegas” over a photo of Gwendolyn with her younger brother Jeremiah, who is baby number six after arriving on planet Earth last October.

“Crazy how much our lives have changed in 5 years…but damn it was a fun night. And we have the BEST souvenir to remember him with,” the proud dad wrote, with that souvenir being Gwendolyn.

“@diplo suggested I name her after the hotel…but @iheartradio put us up at Planet Hollywood…so no,” the actor explained.
