The musician, 31, and his fiancée Michele Maturo welcomed their second baby together, son Morrissey Onyx Musto, on Saturday, March 12, his rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively. The couple is also parents to son Midnight Thomas, who was born in January 2020.

Baby Morrissey was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, California, weighing 6 lbs., 8 oz. and measuring 20.5 inches at birth.

"We are so blessed for this new addition to our family. Our 2-year-old son Midnight now has a built-in best friend," the couple tells PEOPLE. "We did not know our hearts could expand this much. Shout out to the parents not getting any sleep we are tired with you!"

As for the meaning behind the baby's moniker, the couple says they chose the name because of Blackbear's favorite singer, Morrissey, the frontman of The Smiths. They picked Onyx for his middle name because the pair loves the meaning of the black gemstone.

The gemstone represents powerful vibrations of protection willpower strength and focus. It is believed the onyx drives motivation and pushes you forward in life. Black is also the couple's favorite color.
