Fitz and actress Kaylee DeFer have first child

NEW YORK (AP) — Kaylee DeFer and Fitz of Fitz and the Tantrums are the proud parents of a baby boy.

The lead singer of the rock band and the “Gossip Girl” actress welcomed Theodore Ignatius Fitzpatrick on Friday. The baby weighed 8 pounds, 13 ounces.

Fitz, whose real name is Michael Fitzpatrick, said the couple had a doula to help with the birth. He said DeFer was “amazing” in the delivery room.

Said Fitz: “I’m so proud of Kaylee … she is the rock star in the family.”

DeFer celebrated her 27th birthday on Monday.

Fitz, 43, has a few weeks at home with his new baby before his band kicks off a U.S. tour in Richmond, Va.

DeFer is working on a TV pilot.
