Life got a whole lot sweeter this summer for former Life star Sarah Shahi, 29, and her husband Steve Howey. The couple welcomed son William Wolf Howey on Wednesday, July 8th in Los Angeles, her rep tells Celebrity Baby Blog.

Baby boy weighed in at 8 lbs., 6 oz and measured 21 inches in length.

Sarah, who also costarred in The L Word, recently said her maternal instincts kicked in from “the moment the stick turned blue.” She announced her pregnancy in February.

William is the first child for the couple, who met on the set of Reba in 2004 and married earlier this year.

I too love the name, but I might be bias because my youngest is named William Alexander. ;-) Congratulations to mama, baby and family!

I like the name, but i have notice all these celebrities have normal and nice first names for their kids and then a very very strange middle name, never heard of people calling their kids wolf, but its their choice and as long as they like it thats all that matters.
