David “Puck” Rainey, the young rebel from MTV’s The Real World: San Francisco, is all grown up – and recently became a dad for the second time, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

Puck, 38, and his homemaker wife Betty, 39, confirm that son Rocco Kokopelli Rainey was born on Aug. 6. The baby, whose middle name is an homage to a prehistoric Native American fertility deity, weighed in at 8 lbs., 9 oz. He joins brother Bogart, 4.

Rocco “looks like a combination of both of us, which is probably lucky for him because I’m kind of ugly,” Puck tells PEOPLE.

When it comes to being a dad for the second time, Puck turns serious. “I love babies,” he says. “Having your own baby gives you a capacity to love something a lot differently. I didn’t have the capacity to love things in the same way before I had a kid. I had dogs and fish and plants, but never a kid. I had little Bogart and it kind of changed me a lot. And now, Rocco. I really just like looking at him.”

Puck became one of reality TV’s first antiheros in 1994 as a spiky-haired, hygienically challenged bike messenger on MTV’s third season of The Real World.

Since then, he’s appeared in Eminem’s 2002 video for “Without Me” and on MTV’s Cribs; he and Betty, a former stand-in for actress Debi Mazar, even married on the air on MTV’s Real World/Road Rules Battle of the Sexes in July 2002.

These days, the family lives in Mission Hills, Calif. Puck manages the SPÄK motorcycle shop in downtown Los Angeles and, with a friend, runs a custom-granite business in Fremont, Calif.

Of his kids’ unusual names, he told PEOPLE last month, “The deal was that the first baby was my choice. His name is Bogart Che Peyote Rainey, so he’s cool. This time Betty gets to pick, and I wish I could talk her out of it. It’s a combination of my dad’s name and her dad’s name, so it’s Rocco. We can call him Rocky or Roc!”
