Cat Cora Welcomes Son Nash Lemuel

A fish out of water no more, it’s another boy for Iron Chef Cat Cora and wife Jennifer! The couple welcomed son Nash Lemuel Cora at 4:41 p.m. on Sunday, July 19th according to her rep. Baby boy weighed in at 7 lbs., 5 oz, and measured 20 inches in length.

Nash Lemuel’s name is inspirational for Cat, 42, and Jennifer on many levels; Meaning “the adventurer,” the couple thought it would be an appropriate moniker given the miles their fourth son logged in utero!

In addition, they note that Nash will share a name with the poet Ogden Nash as well as scientist John Forbes Nash, whose life is depicted in the film A Beautiful Mind. They go on to note that Lemuel — Hebrew for ‘Gift from God’ — is Cat’s maternal grandfather’s name.

The pregnancy was announced in March. Nash joins big brothers Thatcher Julius, 3 months, Caje, 2, and Zoran, 5, at home.

I actually like the name! I love the name Lemuel, I’ve never heard it before. I kinda like how Lemuel Nash sounds a bit better, but its a fabulous name regardless.

Brooklyn on

Love the name Nash. Reminds me of Steve Nash and Rick Nash =)

Brooke on

Oh my gosh! She has a 2 year-old a 5 year-old AND a 3 month-old??? I would think just having the 2 year-old would be hard enough with a newborn let alone a 3 month-old! Anyways, congrats to her!

Congratulations Cat and Jennifer. I like the name. Maybe I’m a little behind but did Jennifer carry Thatcher or something like that?

brannon on

Love these names!! All of them! 4 baby boys – oh my!

I love the name Nash. Goes well with Thatch(er) (I am assuming they may shorten it to Thatch, especially when he’s older and doing something wrong, and they have to call out his name over and over!!) Either way, love both names.

Sanja on

I’m curious, why do the kids have only Cat’s last name? All gay couples I know gave their kids both their last names.

Wow, a newborn and a 3-month old + TWO older kids! They are brave women!

Elizabeth -yes Jennifer gave birth to all three older boys. This was Cat’s first pregnancy.

My son is named Nash so I’m a bit partial to the name!

Brandi on

Sanja, when they got married Jennifer took Cat’s name.

Love the name, Thatcher Julius is my favorite out of the four. They’re going to be busy busy.🙂🙂

I like Nash. It’s unusual, but not strange. Recently I’ve met some little boys with REALLY unusual names, so this one seems pretty tame in comparison.

Congrats to the family!

Sheri on

I love the name Nash…Lemuel, not so much.

Jessica on

How exciting their house must be! I have a two year old and a 6 month old and am already wanting another! Good luck to them and bless their big family🙂

Aww, four boys for Cat and Jennifer. Nash is a great name, and how nice to honour Cat’s grandfather with Lemuel. Congratulations to Cat and Jennifer!🙂

Nannies & night nurses — I hope Cat & Jennifer have an army of them. Three under three! Makes me tired just thinking about it.
