Chad Lowe Welcomes Daughter Nixie Barbara
Three’s company for Chad Lowe!
“She came a little early, but she’s small and mighty,” Lowe, 48, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “All is well.”
Nixie’s first name references the water sprites of German folklore, and “seemed like a good fit because we’re both avid surfers — my wife more so than me — and are involved in the Waterkeeper Alliance,” the actor and director explains. When Nixie arrived earlier than expected, making her a Pisces, the moniker seemed perfect. Her middle name honors Lowe’s late mother.

“We are so thrilled that our family is growing,” the actor and director told PEOPLE exclusively in December.
“Mabel and Fiona can’t wait to be big sisters … Kim and I are studying up on zone defense!”

“I’m trying to bank some sleeping hours, which is a little tough,” he told PEOPLE shortly before Fiona’s birth.
