Tom Delonge welcomes 2nd child - family a greater priority than Blink-182
The newborn tyke was delivered at a Los Angeles-area hospital at 5:03 p.m., tipping the scales at seven pounds, three ounces and topping out at 20 and 1/2 inches.
According to DeLonge's rep, the bouncing boy earned his unusual--though maybe not comparatively--middle name thanks to his big sis, who began referring to her unborn sibling as Rocket after finding out her mama was expecting.
It's the second child and first son for the couple, who welcomed daughter Ava Elizabeth on July 15, 2002.
LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - Former Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge has become a dad again.
Jonas Rocket was born on Wednesday (16.08.06) in a Los Angeles hospital, and weighed in at a healthy 7 lbs 13 oz.
It is the second child for Tom and his designer wife, Jennifer. They already have a four-year-old daughter, Ava Elizabeth.
The new mum recently revealed why the couple picked the unusual name for their son.
She explained: "Rocket is a nickname that my daughter came up with shortly after we found out I was pregnant. We have called the baby Rocket for several months, evveryone seems to love it."
Jennifer has also previously admitted that Ava was looking forward to having a little brother.
She added: "She is so excited. She can't wait to teach him all the goofy things she does."
