Here’s some super news from Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford.
The couple welcomed son Leo James Routh into the world Friday, a rep confirms to The Hollywood Reporter.
“We’re in awe…we can’t take our eyes off him!” the new parents said in a joint statement.
The boy was born in California and weighed in at eight pounds and measured 22.5 inches long.
Rather than a cigar, Routh enjoyed a malt to celebrate his fatherhood, and tweeted a picture Saturday evening.
