Kelsey welcomes new baby boy

Kelsey Grammer has become a father again.

The 'Frasier' actor's wife Kayte gave birth to their second child, a son, on Tuesday and the little boy will be known as Gabriel, though it seems that is actually his middle name.

Kelsey - whose full name is Allen Kelsey Grammer - told 'Entertainment Tonight': "Our son will be called Gabriel as there is a tradition in our family of going by our middle names.

"We are blessed and excited to have this lovely young man join our family -- he is magnificent!"

The little boy was born at 8.28am in Los Angeles and weighed in at a healthy 8lbs 2oz.

Kelsey and Kayte are already parents to two-year-old Faith, while the 59-year-old actor has four other children from previous relationships.

The couple were left devastated when Kayte was carrying Faith as they were initially expecting twins, but sadly lost their baby boy.

However, Kelsey - who has been married four times - revealed last year he was keen to have more children with Kayte.

He said previously: "I think we'll have at least two more, if not three or four. I think it's a great way to live a life."
