The growing family is already gushing about their baby boy and revealed to People in a statement:

We are all doing so great! Jax has the cutest little 10 fingers, 10 toes — and the sweetest little nose. Labor was tough this go [but] worth every second. Bracy was amazing during labor — couldn’t have done it without his jokes, his love and incredible support.

Oteri is already mom to 9-year-old Ben and had quite a whirlwind year last year. First, she married her best friend of 22 years in March. And in July, the star announced she was expecting her second child -- a son.

Now the Bachelor family has grown by one. And his name is right on-trend. The "x" names are certainly becoming more popular (think Maxton, Pax, or Jaxon), and Jax is no different. Plus, major props to Angelina Jolie to starting the trend first. All three of her sons have "x" ending names (Pax, Maddox, and Knox), so it looks like Oteri had some great inspiration. While Jax has become more widespread after the premiere of Sons of Anarchy and the main character, Jax Teller, it's also become a great alternative to the ever-classic Jack.

Congratulations to Renee and Bracy!
