Welcome Baby Eli Christopher!

Ellen, who rose to fame as Meredith Grey in Grey’s Anatomy and Chris, who is a music producer, chose the super adorable name Eli Christopher for their third child and first son.

The pair, who married in 2007, are also parents to 7-year-old Stella Luna and 2-year-old Sienna May (who was born with the assistance of a surrogate).

The couple haven’t released any details on the dates of Eli’s birth but the photo suggests that the little guy is past his fresh squishy newborn stage.

The family have always been quite shy about sharing their personal life with the paparazzi and Ellen certainly kept this secret under wraps! However, just last week the family were photographed walking near their California home with a new addition in a baby carrier.

Eli is definitely a strong choice for a name and complements Sienna and Stella wonderfully. The name Eli is currently the 44th most popular baby boy name in Australia and 53rd in America. And, clearly his middle name pays tribute to his proud daddy!

2016 Baby Boom

Eli is one of the many adorable babies born in celebrity land in 2016. Just this week Pink and Carey Hart welcomed their second child, Jameson and Nick and Vanessa Lachey welcomed their third child, Phoenix on Christmas Eve.

Other celebs who have recently added to their brood include Zach Galifianakis and wife Quinn Lundberg, Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis and Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds (to name just a few).
