LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- It’s a boy for former “The Sopranos” star Drea de Matteo and her fiance, musician Shooter Jennings.
“Waylon Albert ‘Blackjack’ Jennings has arrived folks!” Shooter announced via Twitter on Thursday. “Thanks for all the kind words folks! We’re super lucky to have so many kind friends!”
Waylon, named after his famed late grandfather, country legend Waylon Jennings, is the second child for Drea and Shooter. The newborn baby boy joins the couple’s 3-year-old daughter, Alabama Gypsyrose.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Shooter, 31, and Drea, 39, who recently starred on “Desperate Housewives,” announced their second pregnancy in December.
The longtime couple has reportedly been together for nine years. They got engaged in June 2009 — when Shooter proposed to his ladylove onstage during a show in Utica, New York — but have yet to walk down the aisle.
