Jamie King, Kyle Newman Welcome Baby Boy James

The actress Jamie King and her director husband, Kyle Newman, have had their first child together, a baby boy the couple has named James Knight Newman.  More from US Magazine:

"Jaime King and Kyle Newman welcomed son James Knight Newman on October 6th," a rep for the actress, 34, told Us Weeklyon 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.
