It’s a boy for the former Bachelor star and his wife! Andrew Firestone and Ivana, 31, welcomed their son Adam Brooks Firestone on Saturday, March 21st at 6:48 a.m., the couple reveal to Us Weekly. With a middle name honoring his paternal grandfather, baby Adam weighed in at 8 lbs. In a statement following the birth, the new proud papa shares,

“Ivana and my son are doing well. Everyone is healthy and happy. I am ecstatic about being a father.”

The pregnancy was announced in September with Andrew, 33, explaining that the newlyweds were looking forward to a delivery surprise. “There’s very few surprises left … This will be our big life surprise.” Adam was due to arrive in three weeks.

Congrats to them! That’s a good sized baby for one that wasn’t due for a few weeks yet.

chowchowpug on

Wow! Good Size for a Month Early!!

kelly on

Cute name!

Allison on

I always wonder, when big babies are born weeks early, maybe their due date was calculated wrong in the first place?

Congrats to Andrew and Ivana on their new little baby boy!

Amber on

Congrats to them! I had my baby last Friday, named Adam as well!!!!!

jessie on

Brooklyn on

Congratulations to them both! I like the name, very simple, but nice! Adam Brooks Firestone and more specifically Adam Firestone flows very nicely.

Mia on

good and strong sounding name. Congrats to them :)

Anna on

I love their last name! Firestone sounds very cool.

fuzibuni on

when i said that name to myself it sounded solid. i like it.

Megan on

Love the name. Very classy. Congrats to them both, I’m sure this will be one gorgeous boy!

Valeri on

congrats! remember andrew from the bachelor. you make a lovely couple :) bet baby adam is a cutie.

Jane on

Love the name – Adam is one of my favourite names for boys. Congrats to the happy parents!

CelebBabyLover on

Okay, maybe this is a weird question…But does anyone know if Ivana is Czech or has Czech background? I’m asking because “Ivana” is a Czech/slavic name, and Donald Trump’s first wife is also named Ivana and is Czech.

In anycase, congrats to them on the baby…and good thing he came a month early! If he had waited around until mid-April, well…OUCH is the the only thing I can say!

eternalcanadian on

oh that is so nice! good to hear to read the mum and baby are doing good. sounds like it was 3 weeks early, not too bad, yeah?

by the way, i found it interesting andrew sort of “scolded” jason for that crazy bachelor switch-up. i noticed a lot of past bachelors did that too.

Sandra on

Congrats. And LOVE the name. :)

babyboopie on

Congratulations on the birth of baby Adam! 8lbs is a good weight!

fay on

u know all these ppl are getting on my nerves…

charlie and brooke were due AFTER me, and have had their babies but i let it go because they were twins

AND NOW ANDREW AND IVANA… mid april, i’m due on april 6… AND THAT BABY IS 8 LBS… so someone miscalculated the hell outta that pregnancy because if that baby would have gestated 4 more weeks, he’d have been HUGE…

at any rate… if allyson hannigan has her baby before me, i’m boycotting cbb till i have my baby… JEEEEZ!!!!

Lis on

Oh, yay!!!! So happy for them :) I really thought they were going to have a girl, so I am pretty surprised!!!

Can’t wait to see pics, I LOVE Andrew Firestone <3

SARA on

Celebbabylover,Ivana is Jugoslav,not Czech.
Congrats Andrew and Ivana,I bet your son is beautiful and I love his name:normal and cute at the same time.

Kellie Ann on

Oh jeez Fay, stop complaining. lol. Not everyone will have their baby right on time.

robinepowell on

Congrats to them both. Another celebrity who went with a “normal” name for their child. Seems like all of these other celebs are trying to outdo each other with the weird names.

Stephany on

Congrats to them! I love, love, love the name!

My nephew was “said” to be due on October 14th but came on September 25th and weighed 9 lbs, 7 ounces! Imagine waiting until his due date! :) So maybe the due date was a little off?

Dee on

I love the name, but I thought that Andrew’s brother was named Adam as well. At least, that’s what I recall from watching the Bachelor.

ashleigh on

Wow! This was not a baby I was expecting would come so early… and at a weight of 8lbs. at 3-4 weeks early, I’d guess he probably wasn’t a “honeymoon baby” as they surmised!

Definitely a boy week–The Sheens, Jenna Jameson/Tito Ortiz, Carson Daly!

Congrats to the family!

Molly on

Sara, Ivana is Serbian, not Yugoslav

Mary-Helen on

Congrats! What a strong, masculine name! I love the name Adam but my husband already has a cousin named Adam, so we can’t really use it, but Adam Brooks just sounds fantastic.

nicole jackson on

I love the middle name, it’s our son’s name!

Judith on

Congrats to Andrew and Ivana. I think Andrew is the only one of the “Bachelor” series that has had a happy ending.. I wanted to know the sex of my child before birth. He’s a boy, too. Now, 14 years old!! How time flies. Enjoy your baby.. Babies are blessings..

Catherine on

That will be one cute baby, because Mom is beautiful, and Dad is handsome! And I love his name, how it’s normal, but now, whenever I hear “Adam” I think of Adam Lambert from American Idol, but it’s still a cute name! lol

suzanne on

Oh I be that baby is just gorgeous. Love the name as well and glad to hear it’s not something too outrageous…Congrats!

CelebBabyLover on

Kellie Ann- I’m pretty sure Fay was just joking! :) As for the baby being early and being so big…The due date COULD have been miscalculated, but there’s also a chance it might not have been.

I have heard of full-term babies who have been 14 pounds or more at birth (and I think the heavist baby ever born was something like 20lbs or so…although he apparently didn’t survive very long after birth)! Also, there’s another possibility: Maybe Ivana was due in EARLY April, but she and Andrew said mid-April in an attempt to throw off the paps and have a little privacy when the baby actually came (I know they aren’t THAT famous, but still!)!

fay on

oh kelly ann i was just kidding…

two of my preggo buddies had their babies this weekend, and now celebrities who were due right around me or after me are having their babies… i’m just a little jealous… i’m not really upset honey… just jealous…

but i’m up at 3 am cuz my baby is making some moves and hurting me… so maybe, just maybe, i won’t have to boycott cbb after all (smile)

Risa on

I’m with Fay! I’m due April 10th, and all it looks like all the mid-April babies on CBB are being born before my little one. No fair! (I say this jokingly, of course.)

Congrats to Andrew & Ivana. I agree with other posters; it’s probably a good thing this little guy was born early…whoa, 8 lbs 4 weeks early!

Harley on

What a beautiful name :) Watch out world if he looks like his papa!

As for the size, eh, trust me it happens. My godson was 3 weeks early and weighed in at 8lbs. 3oz. and trust me, there was no getting the conception date wrong with him haha!

Jax on

This baby sure as hell will be one GOOD LOOKING GUY!!!!!!

Jenny on

Congrats to them! Very nice name and I’m glad everyone is well. If I recall, I think his brother’s name is Adam too.

Lorelei on

Congratulations to the Firestone family. What a blessing. I love the name. I may be partial-my oldest is Andrew and my youngest is Adam!

aleshamom4 on

Congrats!!! Wow, all these “early” babies, and most boys, does anyone know what year this is in Mythology and in the Chinese Calendar LOL?! maybe the recession starting from last yr made the Y sperm mad?! The end of the decade?! Help?! Just glad all are healthy, robust, strong, but now we need some ESTROGEN;/)!!!!
