Actor Tom Arnold Welcomes Son Jax Copeland

Tom Arnold, the 53-year-old actor and comedian who was public about the infertility struggles he and his wife Ashley faced, is now the proud father of a son named Jax Copeland, reports:

Following the couple's long battle with infertility, the actor and comedian's son was born Saturday, weighing 8 lbs., 12 oz. His safe arrival prompted Arnold, 54, to tell PEOPLE that welcoming Jax was nothing short of miraculous.
