Wow, the 26-year-old really sounds sincere. We guess Chet FINALLY got the wake up call he needed!

As for the baby’s mom, her identity has not been confirmed despite a report suggesting the baby was conceived out of a one-night stand with a woman named Tiffany.

Following the rumors, the proud dad took to Twitter to SLAM allegations against his baby momma:

Damn! It’s clear the California resident is fiercely protective of this woman — good for him!

On a more positive note, In Touch reports Tom and his wife, Rita Wilson, could not be more thrilled to be grandparents to their 8-month-old granddaughter:

“Tom and Rita are really excited to have a new granddaughter. They’ve fallen in love with the little girl. Chet is financially supporting the baby, of course, with Tom’s help. They adore that baby and even spent Halloween with her. She will always be loved and taken care of by the Hanks family.”

So sweet!

A confidante close to the situation went on to add:

“Chet’s now sober and is currently working as a drug counselor. He lives in Santa Monica and pays $2,800 a month in rent, with the help of his dad. He’s telling everyone that this baby truly changed his life.”

Well, it sounds like the Hanks will have fabulous Christmas this year.

Congrats on your new baby, Chet!!
