Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss on His 2-Week-Old Son: ‘I’m So Proud of Every Little Thing He Does’

04/13/2016 at 05:45 PM ET

Stephen “tWitch” Boss is back on The Ellen DeGeneres Show two weeks after the birth of his son, Maddox Laurel — but it wasn’t easy for him to leave his new baby behind.

Boss shared a photo of his adorable newborn with host Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday, and said it’s been hard for him to want to leave the house.

“We had a beautiful baby,” said the former So You Think You Can Dance star of his son with wife Allison Holker. “Now you see why it’s hard to leave home, right? Little man is so cute!”

DeGeneres congratulated Boss on having a “gorgeous baby,” but the new dad happily gave his wife all the credit. “Allison cooked him up well!” he said.

Boss also talked about Maddox’s full head of hair, and said he’s already in awe of everything he does.

“He has a big, full head of hair, absolutely,” he said. “We don’t know which way it lies just yet, so that’s going to be interesting, but I’m just so proud of him, every little thing he does — from hiccupping to sneezing to waking up from his sleep. Everything is just amazing.”

He also admitted to DeGeneres that he sometimes can’t take his eyes off of his beautiful baby boy.

“If he has memories of now, it will be me just staring at him when he’s sleeping,” said Boss. “Because he’s just so beautiful. He really is.”

Boss also explained the origin of Maddox’s middle name Laurel — it’s his middle name too, and despite the spelling, it’s actually pronounced Luh-rel.

“It’s spelled like [Laurel] but it’s Luh-rel,” he said. “My mom was feeling creative I guess!”

What a gorgeous family. I loved watching Ellen today and seeing her welcoming back tWitch after his 2 weeks off with his family.

I love tWitch so much. Allison is a very lucky woman to have such a great husband.

So excited to watch my taped Ellen show today. I’m surprised Twitch is back already. That little baby is so alert for only being two weeks old. He is SO beautiful….the eyes, the hair, the smile….I’m very happy for all of them. God bless this great family. Congrats to Weslie too….on being a big sister. Your Mom will need lots of help with him and you’ll be an excellent help to her. The fun times are just beginning….

Gorgeous family, gorgeous baby. The way he’s looking at her in the first picture. We should all be so lucky. Every woman deserves that. Ugh! Jealous but happy for them.🙂
