Kelsey Grammer is going to have one long Christmas list this year! The star of the new FX series Partners has welcomed his sixth child.

The 59-year-old actor and his wife, Kayte, welcomed son Kelsey Gabriel Elias Grammer on Tuesday morning in Los Angeles. The little guy weighed in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces.

"Our son will be called Gabriel as there is a tradition in our family of going by our middle names," the couple said in a statement to The Insider With Yahoo. (Just FYI, the Frasier alum's full name is Allen Kelsey Grammer.)

The couple told Entertainment Tonight, "We are blessed and excited to have this lovely young man join our family — he is magnificent!"

Grammer has a lot of experience in the daddy field. He and Kayte, who married in 2011, have a 2-year-old daughter, Faith Evangeline Elisa, but he has four other children from previous relationships. Two come from his third marriage to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills's Camille Grammer (a son Jude, 9, and daughter Mason, 12), one is from his relationship with Barrie Buckner (Awkward actress Greer Grammer, 22), and his eldest is from his first marriage to Doreen Alderman (Greek actress Spencer Grammer).

Funny enough, the proud new father has a grandchild, too. Spencer welcomed a son, Emmett, in 2011. He is older than the one-time Cheers star's two youngest children.

With his growing family, it makes sense that Grammer is busy working this summer. Not only is the veteran actor co-starring opposite Martin Lawrence in the new FX series Partners (they play Chicago lawyers who form an unlikely partnership), but he can soon be seen on the big screen with Sylvester Stallone and the star-studded cast of The Expendables 3, which hits theaters on August 15. He was also in the summer flick Transformers: Age of Extinction, which opened in June.
