Everything is coming up Kelsey Grammer these days.
First, the actor was one of the few celebrities who openly championed Donald Trump for President of the United States.
And we all know how that election turned out, don’t we?
Now, we can confirm that the veteran star recently welcomed his SEVENTH child into the world, with sources reporting that wife Kayte Walsh gave birth to a boy on Monday, November 14.
His name is Auden James Ellis.
According to Us Weekly, the newborn will go by his middle name, James.
He also weighed 7 pounds and measured 21 inches long at birth. Not shabby on either count!
“Both mother and son are doing great,” a rep for the star tells Us Weekly.
News of Walsh’s pregnancy went viral in mid-September, meaning she was clearly very far along when we first out a child was on the way.
In a separate statement, meanwhile, Grammer and Walsh explained that there is a bit significance behind their son’s moniker.
“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,” Kelsey and Kayte said.
That’s sort of interesting.
What about Ellis?
It is a family name, courtesy of the actor’s great grandfather on his mother’s side.
“He was a colorful character, to say the least, and we wanted to give the name a second chance,” the parents explained.
The pair, who married in 2011, are also parents to a four-year old named Faith and a two-year old named Gabriel.
They met while Walsh was working as a flight attendant… and, according to some rumors, while Grammer was still married to ex-wife Camille Grammer.
The former Frasier star is 61 years old also has four other children:
Spencer, 33, from his marriage to Doreen Alderman; Greer, 24, from his relationship with Barrie Buckner; and Mason, 15, and Jude, 12, from his marriage to the aforementioned Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member.
Those are a lot of mouths to feed!
“My dad, he loves little kids,” Greer told Us Weekly this fall, adding:
“He always has. He’s a huge little-child fan, and he’s just so good at it. Him and Kayte are such good partners and they parent so well together and they just want this kind of big family.
“So now I’m going to be one of seven, which is crazy.”
It sure is.
But, hey, who are we to judge!
We send our best wishes and a note of congratulations to Kayte and Kelsey.
Why not go for eight, guys?!?
