Penn and Emily Jillette welcome second child and first son

Emily Jillette
tells us exclusively that her labor was short and easy and, "I really only had about 25 minutes of pushing…I do feel great, we’re going home today. Moxie already met Zolten and gave him a kiss."  Moxie loves other babies and, "likes to kiss them all on the nose."

, 11 months, has a baby brother! Penn, 51, and Emily Jillette, 40, welcomed baby Zolten Penn this afternoon in Las Vegas. He weighed in at 8 lbs, 13 oz.

As Emily exclusively told us in February, she has been on bed rest since she was 14 weeks along and was due on 06/06/06, but Zolten came a bit early. Magician and comic Penn explains the name: "Zolten is a common Hungarian name, it’s my wife’s maiden name and most importantly, it’s the name of Dracula’s dog."

Her original due date is also the release of the remake of the movie, The Omen. Good thing little Zolten wasn’t born then. hehe

But his name, although quirky as his sister’s, isn’t too bad. I think I can get used to it. I wasn’t expecting anything less with Penn. lol

Congratulations to Emily and Penn! Penn joked on his radio show a few weeks back that with the initials Z.P. his son will probably end up nicknamed Zippy. 😉

Zoltan is actually not that unusual of a name, I don’t think…I know someone from school who’s name is Zoltan (he’s Hungarian, too lol) I would have expected something a lil more out there, but I like it all the same! 🙂

Yay! I’m so happy for them. And, you know, off-the-wall names totally work for his kids! Hehe. 🙂

Congratulations Penn, Emily, & Moxie! =) No doubt Zolten is as adorable & gorgeous as his sister! =D

And, by the way, I’m totally loving your children’s names! <3 =)

I’d be having Irish twins too if I was 40, not much time left! 😉

Aw that’s so cute! Baby Moxie kissed her baby brother Zolten on the nose.

Moxie and Zolten sounds like some sort of superhero show like my brother used to watch. Interesting names indeed.

(BTW wasn’t there some Cobra guy on G.I. Joe back in the 80s named ‘Zolten’ or something?)

Yeah for them. Ditto on Zolten not being that unusual, isn’t one of Mariska Hargitay’s brothers a Zolten?

Moxie is still a fabulous name & a guilty pleasure.

Moxie is cute as i’m sure her brother is. But what is with the names? Why do celebrities fell the need to try to out do each other with crazy names. Do they relise that these kids have to grow up with these names.

I love the names they’ve chosen. Cool, but not crazy.
