It’s a boy for Kelly Stables!

The Exes star and her husband, manager Kurt Patino, welcomed son Kendrick Kurt Patino on Friday, Sept. 7 in Burbank, Calif., her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

Baby boy arrived at 2:32 p.m., weighing in at 7 lbs. and measuring 19.5 inches long.

“He’s healthy and happy,” her rep tells PEOPLE.

After announcing her pregnancy in April, Stables — whose due date had been Sept. 18 — later confirmed the sex of the couple’s first child, before revealing she was craving salsa, sherbet and the dreaded “b-word.”

“I’ve overall been craving the b-word, which is breads. Actresses don’t do that!” she joked in June.

Surrounded by family and friends, the mom-to-be, 34, celebrated her pending arrival with a blue-themed baby shower in August.

Wow everybody…..who cares what they named him. Their son, their choice….

lol. the “actresses don’t do that” bread comment. if you are pregnant, then I think you need to put vanity aside and care for your child. I was a size zero before I had my first son, and after he was born, I worked out and got rid of it. why would you deny your unborn child nutrition, just because you’re vain?!?!

So it was either Ken or Derrick. They couldn’t decide so you get…Kendrick.

KmC, she was clearly making a joke. God sakes…Did she say she didn’t eat? No. The boy is seven pounds, so I will go out on a limb and suggest he got some nutrients. I guess since she’s married and we can’t call her kid a bastard, we have to look for something else to criticize?

megh/an- Exactly! I also want to point out that, while of course you should eat a good diet while pregnant, it’s unlikely that the baby will suffer from a lack of nutrients even if the mother doesn’t eat much.

This is because, when a woman is pregnant, her body does everything it can to make sure the baby gets the nutrients it needs….even if it means the mother herself won’t get optimum nutrition. Not only that, but nourishing a growing baby is such a priorty for the body that it will even sacrifice nutrients from it’s own tissues (such as calcium from bones and teeth and protien from muscles) in the rare instance that the mother’s food intake alone isn’t enough to both sustain the baby AND keep her (the mom) healthy enough to sustain the pregnancy.

In otherwords, a pregnant mother will be in bad shape from not eating long before her baby will!

Anyway, congrats to them, and I actually like the name. They can always call him “Ken” or “Kenny”….or even “Rick”! :)

Sorry for the triple-post, but I also meant to say that I love how they honored his dad by having his MIDDLE name be after him rather than his first name. Personally, I prefer that honoring parents be done that way rather than making the kid a junilor. I think kids should have their own names. But that’s just my personal preference and I don’t expect everyone to agree with it or follow it. :)
