Sons Of Anarchy’s Theo Rossi is a first-time dad, after his wife Meghan McDermott gave birth to a baby boy.
The actor, who played Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz on the FX show, has named his son Kane Alexander Rossi.
Baby Kane Alexander Rossi was born on Monday, four days later than his due date, weighing 7 lbs, 12 ounces.
The 40-year-old actor said, “My son Kane is healthy and my wife is a trooper and doing great. No one could have prepared us for the overwhelming joy we would feel when meeting our son. What a beautiful day to welcome our little king into the world.”
The baby boy was actually due on Theo’s 40th birthday, June 4.
On Sunday, the actor tweeted, “Today is a beautiful day in my NYC for the arrival of a King or Queen. #LegacyOfLove”.
Theo and Meghan waited to find out the sex of their baby at birth, not wanting to spoil the fun surprise.
Rossi tweeted on May 30th, “You know you’re about to have your 1st child when a @TrueValue commercial with a father and his kid gets you a little misty. #GetItTogether”.
The actor was obviously thrilled at the thought of having a child, saying in April, “I’m just excited for him or her. I keep calling it ‘him or her’. I’m just excited for this baby to grow up in New York City because it’s the greatest place in the world, and it made me who I am, and I just think that it’s going to be very interesting because it’s a very different time from when I grew up.”
Theo and Meghan met through the Boot Campaign, a charity which provides assistance to military personnel.
Theo is the ambassador while Meghan works in media relations for the organization.
He starred as the troubled “Juice” Ortiz in all seven seasons of FX’s hit show Sons Of Anarchy, which aired its final episode December 2014.
Rossi is now filming the movie Low Riders, starring alongside Eva Longoria and Demian Bichir.
