Of course Drea de Matteo gave her baby boy a rock-star name. Would she have it any other way?

The Sopranos sweetie, gave birth Thursday to a son with longtime boyfriend Shooter Jennings. And the couple gave the tyke quite the moniker—not that we'd expect anything else from his leather-loving, music-worshipping mama. 

So what's the little dude called?

"Waylon Albert 'Blackjack' Jennings has arrived," Jennings tweeted yesterday. "Thanks for all the kind words folks! We're super lucky to have so many kind friends!"

OK, the Waylon is cool. The Blackjack? Even cooler.

The 31-year-old Jennings, a country-rock singer-songwriter, and his Emmy-winning leading lady, 39, named him in honor of Shooter's late legendary dad, Waylon Jennings

Shooter and Dreaq have been together for nine years and got engaged in the summer of 2009. Blackjack joins the couple's daughter, 3-year-old Alabama Gypsyrose.
