an ability acquired after a long time

When a baby gains the ability to walk, he or she needs a long process. I would like to know how to express situations relating to such a case where one acquires an ability after a long time.

Suppose a conversation between two people (A and B).
(Self-made sentence)
A. Ah, your child can walk.
B. Yes, at last, (example sentences below(1~3))
1. he has grown to walk.
2. he has learned to walk.
3. he has got able to walk.

Which one is likely to be spoken or none of them?

Thank you

    B is the best, and correct, but I would say "Yes, he (finally) learned to walk". It sounds more natural.
