Larger-than-life illusionist Penn Jillette is celebrating after becoming a father for the first time.

The PENN + TELLER star, 50, and his 39-year-old wife EMILY welcomed baby girl MOXIE CRIMEFIGHTER (corr) into the world on Friday (03JUN05).

The happy magician says, "We chose her middle name because when she's pulled over for speeding she can say, 'But officer, we're on the same side - my middle name is Crimefighter.'"
