Abraham begat Isaac

When a woman gives birth to a child, what would the baby's father say to state the fact (from his point of view, with the baby as the subject of the sentence, or otherwise)? A dictionary prompts to use the construction "a son/daughter was born to me" but it sounds a bit too formal to me.
What do common Anglophones normally say in this situation?
