2016 is shaping up to be a very big year for Nate Parker. 

With countless awards already earned for his not yet released but highly anticipated record-breaking film, The Birth of a Nation, the actor has another reason to celebrate--he is now a father to four.

While the couple is notoriously private, E! Online shares that Parker and his wife Sarah DiSanto have welcomed a daughter who they have named Justice. 

No further details have been released about her birth.

Parker has written, directed and produced The Birth of a Nation and will star in the drama film of the slave rebellion tale of Nat Turner. The film, which is set to be released in October, has been surrounded with praise and Oscar buzz following a record breaking $17.5 million deal with Fox Searchlight.

Congratulations to Nate and his wife on their new addition!
