Sago Mine survivor Randal McCloy Jr., and his wife Anna have welcomed their third child, a boy, a rep for the couple tells PEOPLE.

Isaac Martin McCloy was born Thursday morning in Clarksburg, W.Va. He weighed 6 lbs., 5 oz. and measured 19 inches long; he shares a birthday with his paternal grandfather.

Randal, 27, and Anna, 26, have two older children: Randal III, 5, and Isabel, 2.

“All are in good health and resting comfortably,” rep Aly Goodwin Gregg said in a statement.

Randal McCloy was the lone survivor of the Sago Mine disaster that killed 12 of his fellow West Virginia miners in January 2006.

After he was rescued from the mine on Jan. 4 after 41 hours underground, he was rushed to the hospital in critical condition due to carbon monoxide poisoning. He spent several weeks in a coma, followed by intensive rehab, before heading home nearly three months later.

Announcing her pregnancy in August, Anna McCloy told PEOPLE in a statement: “We could not be more thankful for the miracles that have touched our lives this year. We realize that it is still early in the pregnancy but we understand good news travels fast, and our friends and family are so excited.”

At the time, Goodwin Gregg described Randy’s ongoing treatment at HealthSouth Regional Rehabilitation Hospital in Morgantown, W. Va., as “extensive and vigorous,” saying: “His mental and physical progress continue, however recovery from injuries sustained in January is ongoing.”
