Scott Porter: Why We Named Our Son McCoy

06/01/2015 at 01:30 PM ET

Scott Porter and his wife Kelsey‘s decision to name their newborn baby boy McCoy Lee may have been a little off the radar, but there was definitely a method behind the madness.

“We really liked ‘C’ names,” Porter, 35, told PEOPLE at the Celebrity Basketball Spectacular at the Equinox Sports Club in Los Angeles on Saturday. “We thought about Colt. We liked that, but there’s so many guys named Colt.”

So then how did that lead to the name McCoy? “Well, there’s a Texas quarterback named Colt McCoy. I said I wouldn’t do Colt, but I’d do McCoy, secretly knowing my favorite X-Men character is the Beast, Hank McCoy,” shares Porter.

“So there’s a little comic book reference in there, a little football reference. We gave him a strong enough name that he could be a superhero or a football player.”

“My son Grayson is healthy and such a sweet baby. I feel so blessed and excited to see both my boys grow up together,” the actress, 36, tells PEOPLE.

“I felt very prepared for labor this time around. I was a little anxious as to when it would happen, though. Having a toddler at home, you have more to organize to make sure everything is taken care of while you’re gone at the hospital.”

05/26/2015 at 07:25 PM ET

Hoppy birthday, John and Michael!

Actress Sherri Saum and her husband Kamar de los Reyes celebrated a major milestone in their twins’ lives — their first birthday! — with a frog-themed party at their Hollywood-area home on Saturday, May 16.

After receiving invites from EchoAge, guests — including The Fosters cast — showed up at the backyard bash, which Good Carma Studio and Laura Stewart Design had transformed into a party space inspired by the boys’ favorite cartoon, Atención Atención.

In between playing games and posing for pictures, guests noshed on a barbecue spread of salads, mac & cheese and chicken fingers. Trays filled with nutritional chocolate shakes from Usana were also passed around to the pint-sized crowd, while the adults sipped on La Croix‘s lemon, lime and passion fruit sparkling water.

Before heading home with treat bags filled with goodies from Mabel’s Labels, Little Green and Soothie Suckers, everyone indulged in Polkatots‘s dessert bar, made up of caramel apples, one-shaped cookies and a vanilla and chocolate frog cupcake cake.

The Fosters returns June 8 at 8 p.m. on ABC Family.
