Olympic gymnasts Nadia Comaneci, 44, and Bart Connor, 48, welcomed their first child on Saturday June 3rd. The baby boy, named Dylan Paul, was originally due July 18th, but was delivered early by cesarean section at 10:26 am in Oklahoma City, and is 17 inches long. Says new dad Bart, "He’s a few weeks early, so he’s a little small — 4 pounds, 10 ounces — but he’s just fantastic. He’s awesome, in fact. He’s really cute…Everything’s great. We’ll probably stay here a couple of days and then go home. So far, everything looks good. He’s strong and healthy and Mom is doing great."

Bart reveals the baby’s first name is after musician Bob Dylan, a favorite of Bart’s, and the middle name is in honor of Bart’s former coach Paul Ziert. He also says that Dylan’s godparents are the aforementioned Paul Ziert and Anastasia Soare, a fellow Romanian like Nadia and infamous Los Angeles area brow guru.
