“American Idol” alum Justin Guarini, 32, and his wife Reina Capodici welcomed their first child together on Tuesday, Apr. 26. Their son, William Neko Bell Guarini, was born at 6:26 a.m., his rep Jeff Ballard tells People. William weighed in at 7 lbs., 2 oz.
Guarini wrapped his role in “American Idiot” on Sunday and says William is “quite a polite fellow for waiting until late Monday, early Tuesday to make his entrance. With a full hear of curly brown hair, wide open and alert eyes he came charging into the world.”
He adds, “Reina is doing wonderfully and should be given a medal for going 10 months and 1 week with child. She performed beautifully and only had to push for 15-20 munutes before the babe arrived. We’re resting comfortable in the hospital and can’t wait to introduce him to his big sister.”
Capodici has a daughter, Lola, 5, from a previous relationship.
