It’s a boy for Sean Patrick Thomas and Aonika Laurent Thomas, who welcomed their second child on Wednesday, June 9, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Luc Laurent Thomas arrived at 4:50 p.m. in Los Angeles, Calif., weighing in at 7 lbs., 6 oz. He joins big sister Lola Jolie, 2.

“Baby and family are doing great,” Thomas’ rep shares.

The actors, both 39, announced the pregnancy in January and celebrated with a Southern-style baby shower before Luc’s birth.

ForeverMoore on

Congrats to them! I had my little boy almost exactly one day before, June 8 at 4:08 p.m.!

Shi on

Luc & Lola….love the names!

André on

not a fan of Luc spelt that way, always read it as “luck” rather than “luke”.

1genisonprince on

Awww.That is so nice. I didn’t know that he had one child. I like the names too.

HappyGoLucky on

Congragulations. I really happy for them.

Jennifer on

Now you have one of each…perfect! Congrats!

@ André: Weird… since Luc is French, as is André. Just take your time and I’m sure you’ll begin to recognize it right off.

I love that the babies’ names are a reflection of Mom’s Louisiana heritage. I’m sure he’s just as gorgeous as his older sister and how glad they must be to have two healthy kids after their fertility struggles!

Luna on

I love Luc, although I agree with a previous poster who said they read it as luck. However, Luc Laurent makes me stumble over the L’s. It’s like the name Lilly. While I like it, it’s a bit of a tongue twister for me.

Luna on

Oops forgot to say congrats Sean Patrick, Aonika, and Lola on baby Luc.

Jill on

Isn’t that the name of Gilles Marini’s character on Brothers and Sisters?

Robin M. on

Luc and Lola. They sound so good together!

Meghan on

Isn’t ‘Luc Laurent’ a character on Brothers & Sisters? Pretty sure… I’m going to have to check. Anyway, congrats to them, I’m sure both those kids are gorgeous!

Bancie1031 on

Congratulations to the Thomas’s! I can’t wait to see baby Luc, I’m sure he’s gorgeous just like his big sister Lola! I wonder if they put the dirt under the hospital bed again? I hope that they did 😀

Hey quick question for anyone that knows ….. how is it pronounced? Is it “Luck” or “Luke”?

DeeBlaze on

I love this Delaware native,he represents us well. Congratulations to him and his wife. It’s wonderful to hear good news, it keeps connected.

Lauren on

Congrats! I bet he is as beautiful as his sister!

Jen dc, you beat me. I was going to say the same thing to Andre!

Jen DC on

@Bancie1031: It’s like “Luke” but with more of an “ooo” sound and a shorter “ke”.

@Lauren: heh hehhhhhh – next time, it’s all you!

ll65 on

Congratulations to Sean & Aonika. Love the name.

Becky on

Love the names of both of his children..

@Bancie1031..What did you mean by putting dirt under the bed?
Is that a tradition for the Mom or the Dad and what does it mean? Thanks..

MiB on

Jen DC you beat me to it as well! 🙂

Becky, Aonika wanted to give birth to both her children in LA but couldn’t, so her brother (I think) mailed her some earth from home before Lola was born, and they put it under the bed so that she would be born on LA soil, in spite of being born in L.A. They were planning on doing the same thing this time, and it’s such a sweet idea, that I hope they could go through with it this time as well.

I wish them all the best!

Laydacris on

@ MiB
Actually it was Louisiana dirt, as she’s from New Orleans.

Kristi on

Just wikipedia’ed it and Gilles Marini character on Brothers & Sisters name is Luc Laurent!

Lauren on

Laydacris, I am reading MiB’s to be correct. LA is the abbreviation for the state of Louisiana. I am guessing the last LA was an error.

Bancie1031 on

Jen DC – Thanks I was wondering about this 😀

Becky – MiB beat me to the answer lol so read her response …..

MiB – yes it was her brother that sent her the dirt from her own backyard of her New Orleans home. Glad to see I’m not the only one that hopes she did the same thing with Luc because I think it’s not a bad idea.

Laydacris – Lauren beat me to answering you LOL so read her response ……

Lauren – if you notice MiB put a period inbetween the L and the A (L.A.) in the last one to show she wasn’t talking about Louisiana but rather Los Angeles, California.

And to everyone else – I’ve never watched Brother’s and Sister’s …. but maybe they did name their son after a charater from that show …. I know a lot of people do that so why not celebrities 😀

electra on

I like the name! Its very handsome.

Lauren on

I thought maybe she made a mistake in the last LA

Morgan on

Judging from looking at both of the parents, that kid’s probably beautiful! Congratulations!

CelebBabyLover on

I hope they put the dirt under the bed again, too! That being said, I wonder why she didn’t just give birth to her children in Lousiana if she wanted them born on Lousina soil? Considering some celebs have gone abroad to give birth to their children (Angelina Jolie, who had Shiloh in Namibia and the twins in France is one example, as is Gwnyeth Paltrow, who had Apple in England), it obviously can be done.

I’m not trying to criticize them at all. Just honestly curious why they didn’t choose to welcome their children into the world in Lousiana if they wanted them born on Lousiana soil?

Becky on

Thanks to all that gave me my answer..That’s pretty neat..I’m sure that they had their reasons for not having the baby in LA..? So either way, I’m just glad that they have a healthy baby and they both seem to be great people..

I’ve seen Brothers and Sisters before, but not enough to know who plays what role on there…

FC on

I completely missed this announcement, but I’m so happy for them on baby Luc arriving safely. 🙂 I’m sure he’s as adorable as his big sister, Lola. 🙂
