Brandon Routh Welcomes a Son

Routh and FordIt’s not a bird, and it’s not a plane. It’s a baby. A baby boy to be exact.

Superman star Brandon Routh, 32, and his wife of five years, actress Courtney Ford, 34, became proud first-time parents on Friday. “We are in awe … we can’t take our eyes off him!” the two said. Leo James Routh weighed 8 lbs. and was 20 1/2 inches long, his rep confirmed in a statement to Hollywood.com.

The baby news comes a little more than a month away from the premiere of Routh’s new CBS show, Partners. In the fall series — which debuts on Sept. 24 — Routh plays the boyfriend of Ugly Betty’s Michael Urie’s character. If life imitated art, he would have some ‘splainin’ to do, Lucy.

Before joining the Hollywood.com team, Lisa spent one year traveling the world in search of culture, and a country that wasn't Kardashian obsessed. FYI: none exist. But since she wasn't born a Hilton — and therefore needed multiple jobs to pay for the many airline miles — she wrote about her trip experiences and other celebrities for 'TV Guide,' 'InTouch,' 'OK!,' 'Redbook,' 'Marie Claire' and many others. Her last job was as a senior associate editor at EW.com, and she blames her love for reality TV and teen dramas on the little amount of sleep she gets thanks to her newest title, Mom.
