John Henson & Jill Benjamin Welcome Baby Jackson

It’s a boy for Wipeout co-host John Henson and his wife, comedian Jill Benjamin!

Jackson Wright Henson was born on March 7 in Los Angeles, weighing 7 lbs., 11 oz., and measuring 22 inches long. And according to a rep for 43-year-old Henson, “Mom, dad and baby are happy and healthy.”

Already, baby Jackson is making a splash at the Henson household.

“I love watching him laugh,” the proud new father tells People. “There is nothing better than a spit take with breast milk!”

Hoping that their son will share the same zest for life as they do, the couple decided to decorate the baby’s nursery in the theme that they used for their wedding reception – a circus!

“It seemed logical for us to carry that circus theme over to the nursery,” says Henson, “because, as we like to say, we took our love and made a person out of it, so we want the child to grow up with that kind of sense of fun and imagination.”

Congrats to John and Jill!

  1. Just wanted to make contact with yourself having the same name. My husband and I have an antique business, and have been operating in Australia for 40 years.
    Congratulations on enjoying the arrival of your son, I think, two years ago.

    Best wishes, Jill Benjamin.
