'Superman Returns' Actor Brandon Routh Welcomes Baby Boy
What did the couple name their new bundle of joy?
Leo James Routh! The baby boy weighed 8 lbs. and measured 20½ inches.
“We’re in awe … we can’t take our eyes off him!” the proud parents — who tied the knot in 2007 — gushed to People, with Routh praising his wife as a “rockstar.”
After long trying to keep the baby news under wraps, the couple confirmed in March that they were expecting their first child. Earlier this week, Celebuzz exclusively revealed the baby-to-be was a boy.
Routh, 32, and Ford, 34, met in 2003 while he was still working as a bartender in Hollywood. Ford is known for her roles on True Blood and Parenthood.
In addition to fatherhood, Routh is taking on a new role in upcoming CBS comedy Partners, which premieres September 24. The new series also stars Sophia Bush, Michael Urie and David Krumholtz.
Congrats to the new parents!
