Congratulations are in order for Johnny Knoxville and girlfriend Naomi Nelson, who welcomed a baby boy on Sunday night in Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Times. Rocko Akira Clapp weighed in at 8 pounds and measured 20 inches long. Both mother and baby are reportedly doing fine.
Back in August, Knoxville announced on his blog that he and Nelson were expecting their first child together, and that he was “excited as hell” to meet his new baby. “[Naomi and I] have been together a few years now and felt it was time to start reproducing (if you know what I mean). Anyway, we are excited as all hell, and can’t wait ’til the little booger gets here,” the “Jackass” star wrote.
The couple, who have kept a low profile, are very supportive of one another, and according to Knoxville.com, he’s happier than ever before. “I’m lucky enough to be with someone, and I am happy,” he wrote on the site. “I feel very lucky. I’m not out running around all the time. I don’t party as much as I used to. I’m not partying constantly and constantly battling myself. I’m with someone, and we are very, very happy.”
Knoxville, whose real name is Phillip John Clapp, has a 13-year-old daughter named Madison with ex-wife Melanie Clapp. Prior to son Rocko’s arrival, Knoxville wrote on his blog, “My daughter Madison has already started becoming a big sister too and is helping pick out clothes, strollers and beds for her new little sister or brother.”
