Tom Arnold welcomes son Jax Copeland
Tom Arnold is a first time father. The actor and his wife Ashley Groussman welcomed their first child on Saturday, April 6. Baby boy Jax Copeland Arnold arrived at 9:53 a.m., weighing in at 8 lbs., 12 oz. and measuring 21 inches long.
“We are still in a bit of shock. It has been a long journey and the healthy birth of our son is a miracle”, the couple told People in a statement.
Tom and Ashley tried for a baby for years. The 54-year-old actor couldn’t be happier when he announced the pregnancy on January. “I’ve tried with other people, but since there is a God we were unable to conceive. Now God said, ‘This is it!’”, he said at the time.
The actor has been married three times before. He and Ashley tied the knot in 2009 in Maui.
