Did Kelsey Grammer Really Name His Newborn Son After Himself?
Welcome to the world Kelsey Gabriel Grammer.
Congratulations to Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh, who just had a baby boy! The couple welcomed the new addition to the family at 8.28AM PT on July 22, in Los Angeles, according to Entertainment Tonight.
The veteran actor is now father to six.
"We are blessed and excited to have this lovely young man join our family - he is magnificent!" the couple gushed in a statement to Access Hollywood.
The couple named their new son Kelsey Gabriel Elias Grammer. No, he won’t be called Junior. Instead, the couple plan to refer to the little one by his second name. In fact, even the dad’s name isn’t actually Kelsey. The three time Golden Globe winner’s full name is Allen Kelsey Grammer, but according to him, but the Grammer family has some very specific ideas when it comes to names.
"Our son will be called Gabriel as there is a tradition in our family of going by our middle names," the statement explained.
Baby Gabriel joins the couple’s 2-year-old daughter Faith Evangeline Elisa – apparently, the penchant for elaborate names isn’t new with this family. The actor also has three daughters – a girl from each of his three previous marriages to Doreen Alderman, Barrie Buckler and Camille Donatacci. Grammer and Donatacci also have a son together.
While Walsh gets busy with motherhood, Grammer has a new role to prepare for in the upcoming FX sitcom Partners. The Bob Boyett and Robert Horn-created series, which co-stars Martin Lawrence, will follow the story of two Chicago lawyers (Grammer and Lawrence) from enormously different backgrounds who develop a startling partnership after they unexpectedly meet in court on the worst day of their lives, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Grammer is currently working on FX's Partners.
