Congratulations to David Arquette & his wife Christina! The happy couple have officially welcomed their 2nd child into the world and we are so thrilled for the newly-expanded fam! Even better, the actor honored his late sister Alexis Arquette with their son’s name. Find out what it is here!
David Arquette, 45, and Christina Arquette‘s, 35, family just got a little bit bigger, according to E! News! Christina gave birth to the couple’s second child — and second son — on March 8, 2017, naming him Augustus Alexis Arquette. The two have announced they’ll call him Gus — how adorable is THAT? His middle name however serves as a tribute to David’s late sister, Alexis Arquette, who tragically passed away at the age of 47 in September 2016.

David and Christina are already the proud parents of 2-year-old Charlie Arquette, and both sons also have a half-sister, Coco, whom David shares with ex-wife Courteney Cox. Back in October, David was beyond excited to announce that he and Christian were expecting their second little one. Taking to Instagram, the star shared a super sweet video of Charlie, revealing that yet another baby boy was on the way!
“So incredibly blessed and honored that my wife @christinaarquette is pregnant with a baby boy!” he captioned the clip. “Thank you Christina and humbled gratitude to G-D for this tremendous gift!” Aw! And now Charlie gets to be a big brother! At the time of the announcement, David even said, “Charlie and Coco are so excited and I am over the moon!!!”
But the video was the most precious thing of all! Showing Charlie holding up a sonogram and hugging it closely to his face, the toddler gives it kisses as he asks his mom, “A baby?” Christina responded, “Yeah! It’s a baby in my belly! Say, ‘Hi, brother!'” The 2-year-old responded adorably, “Hi baby! Hi brother!” before giving the photo a big kiss. Congrats again to the happy family!
