Jason Jones and Samantha Bee Welcome Second Child

07/29/2008 at 03:30 PM ET

Samantha_beeDaily Show senior correspondents Jason Jones and Samantha Bee, 39, welcomed son Fletcher on Friday, June 20th. Fletcher joins big sister Piper, 2 ½. Jason, 41, shared that "Fletcher Jones, is that not a quarterback’s name? My kid is going to be a quarterback for the Hamilton Tiger Cats one day."

The couple, who met when they were both cast members in a Canadian National Exhibition live-action production, joked that they "bonded through our mutual dislike of the children, which is ironic because we’re raising some now." 

The pregnancy was announced in January.

That’s odd, their first child has a hyphenated surname, Piper Bee-Jones, why doesn’t the second kid?

Sadie on

Lara- maybe Jason thought Fletcher Bee-Jones isn’t a quarterback’s name lol
