It’s a boy for Top Chef alum Nikki Cascone!
The chef and husband Brad Grossman welcomed their first child, son Jackson Robert Grossman, at 3:17 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 3 in New York City, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
The baby boy, whom the couple plan to call Jax, weighed in at 7 lbs., 4 oz. and is 19 inches long.
“We both love the name Jackson from one of our favorite shows, Sons of Anarchy, and his middle name is after my stepdad who died of cancer a few years ago,” Cascone explains.
“We had a natural childbirth and after suffering from endometreosis for several years I am ecstatic that we were able to conceive this beautiful miracle baby! We will be taking him to work with us very soon!”
The couple are the owners of Octavia’s Porch, which opened on the Lower East Side in early December.
