Tonyhawk3267_cbb Skater Tony Hawk, 40, and wife Lhotse Merriam Hawk, 35, have welcomed their first child together, a baby girl. Daughter Kadence Clover Hawk was born Monday, June 30th at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla, CA.  She weighed 8 lbs, 8 oz and was 21 inches long.

Kadence joins big brothers Riley, 15, Spencer, 8 ½, and Keegan, 7 this month, Tony’s sons from his previous marriages, who are "super excited to have a baby sister." Lhotse will be released from the hospital on Thursday.

The couple announced the pregnancy in February, revealing the sex later that month. Lhotse’s due date had been June 15th.

Cute name, except I’m not so much of a fan of Cadence with a “K”

They took my name! We were going to name our next daughter Cadence! Not that we still can’t, but I never thought I would see it on CBB.

Congrats to the whole Hawk family!

I can’t even believe Riley is already 15.
Congrats, love the name.
It’s so cute he finally has a daughter.
I wonder if she’ll be a skater too.

I love love LOVE the name Cadence (not so much with a K…lol), and I think Clover is cute too.

Clover is an interesting name choice that I’m not the biggest fan of, but it sounds SUPER cute with Kadence 🙂

Kait on

How cuuute.

Does anyone know how to pronounce his wife’s name? It’s very unique as well as their daughter’s.

legemc on

Anytime I hear the name Cadence I think of the little girl in the burn unit from the movie Shallow Hall.

How cool! It’s hard to think of Tony as ‘all grown up’ but here he is. He’s hardly changed, really. Must be a healthy lifestyle… and a beautiful wife. They eat their veggies and drink Purple and chase kids all day, lol. Sounds like a fun life. Congrats to all of them!

Yay finally a celeb uses my daughter’s name! We have a three year old and her name is Caydence Ryleigh. I’ve loved the name Caydence for a long time. Congrats to them!

I think it’s pronounced “Lot-see” or “Loh-tsee.”

Janine on

According to IMDB, Clover is also Lhotse’s middle name.

annie on

Aww, congrats! I think Kadence is a beautiful name. It means “musical”

Little Kadence will be well looked after (and have lots of playtime) with all the big sibs.

I LOVE the name Kadence, that’s the name I plan on giving my future daughter… Congrats to Tony.

Congrats to Tony and Llotse!!

That’s where I delivered my baby girl too. Great hospital. 🙂

MB on

kait, it’s pronounced “LOT-see”. i had a friend in college with the same name.

i think the middle name clover is cute! seems like lhotse has been pregnant forever! i thought she’d given birth awhile ago and we just hadn’t heard about it.

wonder why CBB is reporting lhotse’s middle name as merriam if imdb says it’s clover….wonder which is correct or if she has 2 middle names?

Allie on

Merriam is her maiden name! Congrats to them I LOVE the name.

Savvy on

I believe, according to the Cribs Tony Hawk episode, her name is pronounced Loht-see. I think both names are very unique and pretty.

jasmine on

Was there a complication that Lhotse was hospitalised for over a week?
Lhotse… welcomed … Daughter Kadence Clover Hawk was born Monday, June 30th… Lhotse will be released from the hospital on Thursday.

Erica on

What do you mean? This is a post from last week, so she had the baby mon june 30 and was released july 3. just sounds like she needed a csection to me…….

i think on

@erica: you’re right. I was thinking this Th instead of last Th.

Sally on

Is there a reason this is still on the hot posts list two and a half weeks later? There have been waaaay more than six hot posts since then, meaning this one should have been pushed off the list like a week ago or more.
