What an amazing way to kick off the holiday season!
According to People Magazine, Kelsey Grammer and his wife Kayte Walsh Grammer welcomed their third child on Monday. The proud parents already have a son and daughter together while Kelsey has four kiddos from other relationships.
As we previously reported, news of Mrs. Grammer's pregnancy first broke in September after she was spotted sporting a large bump at LAX. Sources then confirmed the former flight attendant was pregnant with another baby boy.
Per the couple's statement, the infant's moniker is Auden James Ellis. How distinguished!
Elaborating on the meaning behind the name, the pair revealed:
"The name was chosen to honor the great poet W.H. Auden, and James is after another great poet and singer James Taylor — two of our favorites."
As for for the "Ellis" portion, that was chosen in honor of the actor's late great-grandfather.
Mr. Grammer went on to add:
"He was a colorful character, to say the least, and we wanted to give the name a second chance."
To make matters even better, the duo are happy to announce both mommy and baby are doing "great."
Congrats again, you two!
