Conan O'Brien & Wife Have Second Child

The Late Night host announces the arrival of Beckett O'Brien

Late Night host Conan O’Brien and his wife Liza Powel O’Brien welcomed their second child Wednesday night, PEOPLE has learned.

The couple “is thrilled to announce the arrival of their son, Beckett O’Brien,” a statement says. The baby boy was born Wednesday in New York City at 8:27 p.m., and weighed in at 8 lbs., 4 oz.

“Mother, baby and father are all well,” according to the statement released by NBC.

This is the second child for the 42-year-old comedian and his wife, who turns 35 on Saturday. Their daughter Neve was born Oct. 14, 2003.

Earlier this year the funnyman told PEOPLE that since becoming a father, he’s struggled with one age-old dad duty: putting together kiddie contraptions.

“Being a dad is the greatest, except for assembling things,” said the talk show host. “I remember my father trying to tighten a bolt and hurting his fingers. That’s what I’m doing now – except I break (the toy) before she even gets to play with it.”
