CBB Exclusive: Russell Crowe welcomes second son

Update: Tennyson Spencer was born at 7:21 am on July 7th in Sydney, Australia. He weighed in at 8 lbs, no word on a length, and has black hair, according to Russell. Baby Tennyson and the family are "doing very well," according to a rep. He joins big brother Charles, 2 1/2. Both boys carry on mom’s last name by having it as their middle – a nice touch!

Russell confirms that the baby is named after British poet Lord Alfred Tennyson, but says he will be called "Tenny." The name was also chosen because "it was different" and because of the likeness to Russell’s brother name, Terry, and the shared initials. Russell called in to his friend John Laws radio program to personally announce the birth, saying that, "Dani is great, mate, everybody is fine. The family is over there giving her big kisses and stuff. I am just going home to pick up Charlie to take him over to meet his new baby.”

Originally posted July 6th: CBB is the first to announce that Russell Crowe is a father again. He and wife Danielle welcomed their second son just a few hours ago. More info to come as we get it.

Thanks to our sources, the Sydney Morning Herald, and CBB readers Rachel, Bella, Janice and Alex for name and birth details.
