Ashley Groussman Tom Arnold Baby

Tom is finally a dad at 54! The ‘True Lies’ actor and his wife of three years welcomed their first child on April 6, and it’s a boy! Congrats to the happy couple!

Tom Arnold, 54, and his wife Ashley Groussman welcomed a sweet baby boy on April 6, and the couple couldn’t be happier!

Tom & Ashley Name Their Baby Boy Jax Copeland

The couple, who married during Thanksgiving weekend in 2009, decided on the name Jax Copeland Arnold for their bundle of joy, who weighed in at 8 lbs., 12 oz when he was born early in the morning at 9:53.

Tom and Ashley dealt with a lot of fertility issues before Ashley finally became pregnant after undergoing a few rounds of in vitro. This baby is a dream come true for the duo, who didn’t know if they’d ever have a child together because of all the difficulties they were having.

“We are still in a bit of shock,” the Tom and Ashley tell People magazine. “It has been a long journey and the healthy birth of our son is a miracle.”

Tom Finally Becomes A Father

Ashely is Tom’s fourth wife, but his first to have a child with. He tried to have children with his prior wives, but always had fertility issues and admitted to having a “very low sperm count” in an interview back in January. Tom also revealed in the interview that it all worked out the way it was supposed to and he is happy it took this long because now he is having a baby with the right woman!

“I’ve tried with other people, but since there is a God we were unable to conceive. Now God said, ‘This is it!'” Tom said while announcing the pregnancy news on The View in January.

Congratulations to the happy couple! What do YOU think of Tom finally being a dad, HollyMoms?
