Congratulations are in order!

Kelsey Grammer and wife Kayte Grammer welcomed a baby boy Monday, Nov. 14, E! News confirms. Auden James Ellis Grammer delivered weighing 7 pounds and was 21 inches long.

"The name was chosen to honor the great poet W.H. Auden and James is after another great poet and singer James Taylor—two of our favorites," the couple explained in a statement. Ellis was the Frasier alum's great grandfather's name on his mother's side. "He was a colorful character to say the least and we wanted to give the name a second chance."

Kelsey and Kayte have two other children together, Faith Evangeline Elisa and Kelsey Gabriel Elias. Despite the first name Auden, the Grammers will be referring to their newborn as James.

Kelsey, 61, and Kayte, 35, tied the knot in 2011. The Cheers vet also has four children from previous marriages, Spencer Grammer, Greer Grammer, Mason Grammer and Jude Grammer.

Congratulations again on your expanding family!
