Biggest Loser Stars Suzy & Matt Welcome A Boy: Jax Paul!

The Biggest Loser alumni, Matt and Suzy Hoover, welcomed their second son, Jax Paul, on Thursday, the 11th of September. Baby Jax was born in Seattle, weighing in at 7.6 lbs., and measuring 18.75 inches long. He joins 14-month-old big brother, Rex Timothy. Matt says everyone is thrilled about the new arrival,

“We’re so excited to add a new member to our family! We’re adding another healthy Hoover to our family and look forward to raising both boys in a healthy way with information we learned on the show.” Matt went on to comment on Jax’s name, “Our first son is named Rex, and that was unique and we wanted something that sounded similar that was also unique.”

Matt and Suzy, both 32, first met in 2005 as competitors on the second season of The Biggest Loser, which Matt, a former wrestling coach, ended up winning. He then proposed to second runner up Suzy, a hairstylist, on the Today Show in March of 2006. The couple wed in 2006 in Jamaica.

The fit couple have started a new company,, to help people reach their health, fitness, financial, romantic and spiritual goals. Also, Matt co-wrote the diet and fitness manual Matt Hoover’s Guide to Life, Love and Losing Weight with exercise physiologist Dr. Sheri Colberg, which will be available in bookstores on Sept. 23.

Congrats to the Hoover family!
