UPDATE! Hey there, little guy! Jaime King and husband Kyle Newman have welcomed their first child together — a baby boy — and his name is mommy-inspired! “Jaime King and Kyle Newman welcomed son James Knight Newman on October 6th,” a rep for the actress, 34, told Us Weekly on Monday afternoon. James weighed in at 7 pounds 2 ounces. “Mom and Baby are happy, healthy and are doing great,” the rep adds.
Director Newman made the happy announcement on Twitter and Instagram on Sunday Oct. 6 — adorably sharing the first-ever photo of their son via the social networking sites. For now, though, fans will only get a glimpse of the baby’s tiny little hand, grasping what appears to be his father’s finger. “Nice to meet you!” the Chewie director, 37, wrote in the caption. “#FATHER #IMADAD #BABYTIME @jaime_king is doing amazing! The most incredible feeling.”
The Hart of Dixie actress, by contrast, pranked her fans on Instagram by sharing a screen shot from the Lion King, in which baby Simba is presented on the mount of a rock. “BABY’S FIRST PICTURE!!” she joked. King and Newman announced that she was pregnant back in May; they celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary next month and originally met on the 2005 set of Fanboys.
King revealed to Us Weekly mid-summer that she was having troubling shopping for her baby’s nursey. “I started looking online but it’s really hard to find the right crib,” the former model admitted told Us.
“There are a couple that I really like, but it has to go with the rest of my house because my house is mid-century. There are so many things when you’re having a kid that you have to think about. It’s overwhelming!”
