It’s a boy for comedian Gilbert Gottfried and wife Dara! Son Max Aaron Gottfried arrived on Monday, May 18th at 9:44 p.m. Weighing in at 7 lbs., 14 oz and 20 inches long, Max joins big sister Lily Aster, who turns 2 next week.

“Max is named after Gilbert’s father Max and my grandmother Mildred,” Dara tells CBB exclusively. “Our son was also born on his grandfather Max’s birthday! His middle name is after my grandfather Aaron.”

The proud mama continues, “Max has a full head of dirty blond hair. I am very tired, but labor was a lot easier than with Lily!”

Gilbert, 54, and Dara announced the pregnancy to CBB in November. Max’s due date had been May 24th.
