CNN anchor Campbell Brown and her husband Dan Senor welcomed their first child, a boy, on Tuesday.

Eli James Senor was born at exactly 10 a.m. and weighed 8 lbs. He is named in the memory of his grandfather, James Senor.

“Eli and his mom are doing great,” Dan Senor tells PEOPLE. “We are thrilled.”

Brown, 39, and Senor, 36, a partner in Rosemont Capital, a private equity firm, were married in April 2006.

Brown kicks off a mini baby boom at CNN: morning anchor Kiran Chetry is expecting her second child.
