First season American Idol contestant Justin Guarini and his wife Reina Capodici welcomed a baby boy Tuesday, April 26, 2011.
The couple’s first son, William Neko Bell Guarini, was born at 6:26 a.m. and weighed 7 lbs., 2 oz.
“Quite a polite fellow for waiting until late Monday, early Tuesday to make his entrance,” Guarini told People, referring to the fact that he just wrapped his role in American Idiot on Sunday evening.
“Reina is doing wonderfully and should be given a medal for going 10 months and 1 week with child,” Guarini said. “She performed beautifully and only had to push for 15-20 minutes before the babe arrived. We’re resting comfortably in the hospital and can’t wait to introduce him to his big sister (who was asleep for the whole experience) when visiting hours commence.”
Capodici also has a 5-year-old daughter, Lola, from a previous relationship.
