The tiniest cook in the kitchen has arrived.

MasterChef judge Graham Elliot and wife Allie welcomed son Jedediah Lindsay Bowles on Saturday, Aug. 25, he confirms to PEOPLE.

The baby boy weighed in at 9 lbs., 2 oz. and joins big brothers Conrad, 23 months, and Mylo, 5.

“They’re super excited for a new baby and can’t wait to play with him,” says Elliot, 35, of his elder sons, who wore big brother t-shirts to welcome Jedidiah home.

“Allie’s dad’s name is Jed and my dad’s middle name is Lindsay,” the chef and owner of G.E.B. explains of the name choice.

“The names Jed and [Lindsay] don’t get used often, and they’re part of our family history, so why not embrace that?”

MasterChef airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on FOX.
