Jim Carrey, known best for his exuberant energy in films like "Ace Ventura," "Bruce Almighty" and "Liar Liar," is officially a grandfather. The 48-year-old actor posted this tweet on Twitter Saturday:

The baby was born to Carrey's 22-year-old daughter Jane Erin Carrey, who he had with his first wife Melissa Womer. Womer and Carrey divorced in 1995. Carrey later married his "Dumb and Dumber" co-star Lauren Holly. They divorced less than a year later.
This was Jane Erin's first child. Her husband is rocker Alex Santana, who performs in the band Blood Money under the stage name Nitro.
