Mel Gibson will miss his daughter Lucia’s first birthday on Saturday – a request for the baby to be allowed to stay with her father overnight has been turned down by a judge.
The Lethal Weapon star has asked a court to extend his visitation rights this weekend because a nanny responsible for returning Lucia to her mother, Oksana Grigorieva, on Friday has fallen ill.

If officials had agreed to the request, the actor would have spent some time with his daughter on her first birthday – but the plea was turned down because Gibson has more than one aide he can call on, according to

Grigorieva, who split from Gibson earlier this year, alleged in legal papers that she believes the actor already has too much access to their baby.
