Actor Malcolm Jamal Warner welcomed a new child this week, according to a report on the NY Daily News website. The baby is the first for the 46-year-old Cosby Show star.

“I am elated over Malcolm's new child,” says Phynjuar Thomas, a friend of Warner's whose daughter Michelle Thomas played Warner's girlfriend on The Cosby Show from 1988 until 1990. Warner was at her bedside when Michelle died of cancer in 1998 at age 30.

“I love him,” said Thomas, adding that the baby is about a week old. “I hope they name the baby after me. Phynjuar is a beautiful name."

According to Thomas, the baby's mother is an attorney from Bridgeport, Conn.

Warner dated a plethora of female co-stars over the years, including actress Regina King and The Cosby Show cast mate Karen Malina White.

Warner is pictured above with actress Jackée Harry, 60, in a photo dated September 10, 2016.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Ain't nothing wrong with Kias, they are nice cars and the warranty is the best!

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Damn Theo looking good. Commeer!! Lol

  • SuperScooper1

    60K for a Kia? I'm not one to tell people how to spend their money so I'll just stay mum...

  • Scromes1212

    Your not alone. My brother has one smh we argued for a few days a couple thanksgivings back. He was bragging and I was laughing lol I roasted his a*s

  • Desiree Edwards

    That's wonderful!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yeah he dumped "Charmaine" (Karen Malina White) after 10 years of dating - for Regina King. I don't even think they lasted a year.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    But why that picture tho?

  • stav

    He always seemed a bit pretentious to me!

  • TheWildChild

    Oh wow, I thought that was "Phynjuar" in the pic with him. She, Jackee' does look like a "Phynjuar" .

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    He prolly is....the way he played Regina King, I heard he broke her heart...I think they were engaged.

  • TheWildChild

    And "Phynjuar" at that. Lmao ??? she does seem a little cougaristic.

  • Soda

    She hinted that someone broke up with her on Valentine's Day and sent her flowers! It probably was Malcolm.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm with you. I'm not paying $60k for a Kia. Not when I can get a Mercedes, Audi, or BMW for $40k.

  • Rayne

    I wanted that Kia Rio before I bought my equinox.

  • Jen_no_juice

    No the warranty is not. My mom had engine troubles 2 years into the car, but in order for them to fix under warranty she had to provide ALL receipts showing she got an oil change every 3 months for the past 2 years or it would not be covered

  • Scromes1212

    He dodged a bullet lol

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hope he names the baby something that people will not have a hard time pronouncing....

  • Scromes1212

    Get a BMW, you won't need a warranty lol

  • ThottyPippen

    I'm so mad...you had me thinking he knocked up Jackee...LMAO!

  • https://www.facebook.com/Danayhelena Danay Helena

    I drive a BMW, I used to have a Hyundai Sonata, the warranty is good but the car I had sucked, engine went out and I kept up with my oil changes and everything ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    ...or spelling.

  • Scromes1212

    Exactly lol cause I'm over here struggling trying to figure out how you pronounce Phynjuar smh

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Exactly! Like really??!!! waste...

  • Scromes1212

    You ever had to use the warranty on the engine?

  • https://www.facebook.com/Danayhelena Danay Helena

    It's a 2016, I bet not have to use the warranty for a min or I'm going off!

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    I would have clowned him too LOL!!! forwhyyy!!! LOL Like Lebrick said you can get a real luxury for that!

  • Scromes1212

    You won't lol cause it's not a Kia

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Chile I looked I was like nice car KIA makes thinking maybe 35k..when he told me what it was I was like FORAGOTDAYUMKIAAREYOUSERIOUS!!!

  • https://www.facebook.com/Danayhelena Danay Helena

    And my oil changes come with the maintenance package so I don't have to pay..?#winning

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    They give you that long warranty because they know you are going to experience prollems...and they are hard to get them to do warranteed work.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    "When I get really successful one day I want to buy me a Kia!"

    -said No.One.Ever

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Yeah one of their standard models but to pay that much for that nope..

  • Prettybootnikki

    I remember the young lady he was dating that passed away at a young age. She was so pretty to me. Not sure why I thought he already had children. I must have had him mixed up with the guy Darious from the Steve Urkle show. Can't think of the name of that show. Maybe family matters. Or something.

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    That's about as bad as buying the Hyundai Equus..its like 60k plus...Hyundairuserious...lol

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    But for real they were actually living together with her son for a few years and I heard he dropped a bomb outta no where... like.."I'm just not feeling it anymore"....then asked her to move TF out!....before he was tweeting to the world how bomb she was...narcissistic behavior...

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    I've never heard a bad word about her. Can you qualify your statement...inquiring minds.....

  • Prettybootnikki

    Same thing about that Hyundai genises. I think that one is highly priced too. Nice car though. But not for no Hyundai.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Fen-war? LOL!

  • SummerBaby

    Congratulations!

  • Scromes1212

    I was speaking from a shallow perspective lol all jokes aside, she seems like a nice lady

  • SummerBaby

    Michelle Thomas played Myra on Family Matters

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    I think he's the bullet...sheesh! I see her working....i ain't seen him no whur....lol

  • Miany

    Yes... I confuse the two of them as well lol

  • IAmLegend

    I thought that was Kym Whitley.

  • Scromes1212

    I think he is focused on music now. He won a Grammy, if I'm not mistaken.

  • SummerBaby

    Whispers me too! ?

  • Keisha Hannah

    Been wondering that myself.

  • Soda

    He's seems to have gotten more roles now that he's cut his hair. I've seen him on Suits and Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I guess there's just that old-fashioned side of me that always likes to see a man become a husband before he becomes a father.

  • Renee26

    Awww she was so cute! Didn't know she passed

  • Renee26

    Same

  • lQueenNefertiti

    Me too!!

  • Miany

    Yup, no matter the black movie...they are both perfect for the role of "thicker, light skinned aunty"

  • Scromes1212

    Very true lol

  • Renee26

    Girl that and having to click a new page for pics... she getting paid

  • Renee26

    It's 200 for an oil change for that luxury too chile I tried and said nope

  • Renee26

    He probably doesn't do marriage considering he was in a 10 plus year relationship in the past

  • Prettybootnikki

    Awe. Ok. I now remember her being on there too.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Awwww Rudy and Theo have babies now. Vanessa It's you're turn. When you and Ron gonna make a baby ?

  • Jen_no_juice

    Bless you and your morals

  • Rhyme and Reason

    No comments about his age or how much time, he'll have to spend with his child the way they do celeb women like Janet!

  • HIS4EVA
  • the guest

    First thing I thought too. Best he's ever looked. Very handsome, nice style too.

  • pynkrose407

    Congrats!!!

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Yea he's aging quite well. I wanna sit on his stache'. Lol

  • NeverSurprised

    Nothing old fashioned about it. It's the way it should be. Commitment!!!

  • NeverSurprised

    Jaleel White always speaks so lovingly about her. Apparently she was a very sweet young lady in real life.

  • Meme

    Well I think that may well be because he didn't have to push a baby out of his noonee like women do. But I do agree with you that is a ripe age to have your first born. People think men can have kids until whenever but just as women's eggs deteriorate so too does the quality of men's sperm, but am sure his is just fine 40s being the new 30s and all a that

  • stanley

    He waited still he was 46? damn lol

  • hottlanta

    Congrats but where are the old/worn out/can't swim up stream without an inner tube sperm jokes.

  • Smith Jane

    I used to love her! It's a shame she wasn't a bigger star. She kinda reminded me of Jada Pinkett Smith but with better comedic timing. But I do remember hearing about her breakup with Malcolm. Crazy. I thought they broke up cause he ain't want marriage or kids. If that's true, or if that was what he told her (a lie), I'd be feelings some type of way, if I was Karen.

  • JerseyMom

    I thought he was on the dl.

  • Crazy tee

    People want to wait until they are established but I guess he just gave in....congrats

  • cheechee1x1

    lol

  • cheechee1x1

    You are so right about the quality of sperm. Sperm quality degrades as a man ages. Women need to take this into consideration when having babies for older men.

  • abby500

    Congrats

  • Missy

    Whose kia tho??

  • Ms Thang

    That's what I was thinking ???

  • Meme

    Yep yep yep a friend of mine was dating a 50+ year old man who had kids strewn all over the place with different women, my friend who was in her 30s had none they got married and started trying for a baby to no avail he was like 'well there's nothing wrong with ME must be YOU' layed the blame firmly at her door. She had all kinds of checks and was deemed A ok everything tickety boo (with her) turned out although he had a ton of sperm in millions it was still a very low sperm count apparently according to her they where swimming backwards and had 2 heads and all (yikes)...the irony that he thought it was her

  • Moon Lee

    Dude idolized Bill Cosby.I see he had common sense ,to back away from the courtroom! Blame it on the new baby. Lol...

  • MRiGOThim

    they have like 2 or 3 kids I thought from that reality show they were own?????!!!!!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    It looks like they're in a casino or something LOL per the exit sign and ATM in the back. Maybe, maybe not.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    He looks handsome uptop ?

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Not to mention men who have had years of substance abuse, and later get a new wife, life and have kids! Women's bodies definitely go through many stages and child birth is the most challenging of all, IMO!

  • tanya30060

    He is so handsome!!!! Both of them look so fabulous and happy

  • tanya30060

    Why???nyou got one???

  • tanya30060

    You should have 2!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thank you for asking. Malcolm and Jackee were at an Emmy Awards Diversity Brunch sponsored by Kia Motors.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I never heard that.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Congratulations to him, and the new mother.

  • JackieBrown

    Don't like him for that shi# he did to Regina King

  • BOSS

    He dated Karrine Stephens, also!

  • nick c

    Who didnt?

  • nick c

    I believe thats the 50k kia I see clowns dropping money on, I never drop dough like that on a kia.

  • nick c

    YOU AINT LYING I didnt know either until I saw one its kinda fresh I looked it up online thinking it be 30k NOPE 50k with no options WOW! No freaking way.

  • nick c

    They only make you do that when you dont get the oil change at the dealership and pay they overinflated price for it.

  • nick c

    Luxury Car oil changes are a joke mine is 150 bucks for 5k miles like wtf? I really cant wait for electric cars now.

  • nick c

    Just make sure you dump it before the warranty expires more people loose BMW in mechanics liens then any other car.

  • YES I SAID IT…

    Trus, marriage isn't for everybody

  • Renee26

    Yeah it get ridiculous...that's why I changed my mind and got a cheap sporty vehicle instead. Haven't had any issues and very low maintenance

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Congratulations to him! I can't imagine being a father again in my 40s... WOW! Nope!

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Exactly...naw not for KIA...

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    Wow..less and less a damn she cares LOL!!

  • AListDiva29

    I think u are thinking of Eddie Winslow! Whatever his real name is escapes me ATM haha

  • more

    He needs a round of applause for not reproducing like an animal. Like most other's

  • Renee26

    Ok! Remember when she used to draaaag that other blogger for all those ads??

  • Diva4lyfe

    Congrats to you and your baby mother. I wish you all the best in raising your beautiful baby.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    They've been together 24 years and have no children. They also plan on getting married someday. They're not in a rush *eyeroll*

  • BlackCeaser

    "Dated" is probably not the most accurate description of what anyone did, at any point, with Karrine Stephens AKA Superhead. I could be wrong, though I doubt it.

  • BlackCeaser

    Did he do something to Regina King outside of deciding she wasn't the one for him and breaking up with her? Regardless of how long they both enjoyed the relationship to that point. If so, do tell.

  • BlackCeaser

    A 50K Kia must double as an airplane and a submarine.

  • T3

    Malcolm is fine! Congrats on the baby. Sucks I'm not the mother lol

  • Layah Jhene

    That only applies to people with shitty diets and lifestyles. And to that Your eggs will dry up, your sperm count drops, when you not eating the right stuff. Age ain't got nothing to do with it. my old ass grand dad still having kids in his late 80's.My aunts in their 50's still having kids. Hell even the late Dr Sebi old ass still was having kids before he died.

  • Ridajean

    No one else thinks it's strange that his former girlfriend's mom wants him to name the baby after her? This was highly inappropriate for her to say, especially since it shows no regard for the mother of the baby.

  • kennedy campbell

    lol people said the same thing about lexus aka toyota and infiniti aka nissan and acura aka honda and audi aka volkswagon

  • Missy

    1 '?' will suffice. Now kick rocks.

  • Storm’s Rage!

    But he was a jerkoff at the way he handled it
