You can call him Big Poppa. Just two months after news broke he was about to become a dad (again), Kelsey Grammer, and his wife, Kayte Walsh, welcomed a son, Auden James Ellis, on Monday. They confirmed the tot's birth to Us Weekly and they also explained the newborn's unique name.
"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,” the couple said in a statement, noting he will go by his first name. As for the Ellis part, it's a family name from Kelsey's side. "He was a colorful character, to say the least, and we wanted to give the name a second chance."
Kelsey, 61, and Kayte, 35, are already the parents to Faith Evangeline Elisa, 4, and Kelsey Gabriel Elias, 2. They married in 2011.
As Bravo viewers know, Kelsey has two kids with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pal Camille, Mason, 15, and Jude, 12. He also has two other children, 33-year-old Spencer (from his marriage to Doreen Alderman), and 24-year-old Greer Grammer (from a relationship with Barrie Buckner). The former Frasier star also has one grandchild, Emmett Emmanual Hesketh, born in 2011 to his daughter Spencer.
