His un-caped crusader! Christian Bale cuddles his son Joseph as he takes the toddler out for lunch
He and his wife Sibi Blazic welcomed their little boy to the world in 2015.
And on Wednesday, devoted dad Christian Bale enjoyed a bit of father and son bonding time with two-year-old Joseph.
The 43-year-old, who hails from Wales, carried the toddler in his arms as he headed to his family's favourite casual eatery, Early World Cafe in the tony Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The Fighter actor and Sibi have been married since 2000 and also share 11-year-old daughter Emmeline.
Neither of them were seen at lunch so they may have been enjoying a girls' day out elsewhere.
Meanwhile, Christian will next be seen on screen in the period film Hostiles, in which he stars as an Army captain who escorts a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory in 1892.
