There's a new little guy in Jenna Dewan's life—with a very special name. 

The new mother of two gave birth to her first child with fiancé Steve Kazee on March 6, later announcing on social media that they had welcomed a baby boy named Callum Michael Rebel Kazee.

With news of their little one officially out, the first-time dad took to Instagram to explain the inspiration behind their son's lengthy moniker. 

"We've had lots of questions about the name we choose [sic] for the little peanut so figured I would share a few things..." Kazee began. 

The Tony winner shared that they chose Callum for his first name as it is "Gaelic for dove." "He has been so sweet and peaceful since landing in our arms," he wrote.
