Tom Arnold Welcomes First Child: Jax Copeland

Congratulations to Tom Arnold and his wife Ashley Groussman who welcomed a baby boy on Saturday (April 6). The couple have named the baby Jax Copeland Arnold. He arrived at 9:53 a.m., weighed in at 8 lbs., 12 oz. and measured 21 inches long.

The actor and comedian tweeted: “Maternity is the only section of the hospital where all the nurses constantly say “congratulations!” Oncology, not so much.”

He also wrote: “My son wants to watch My Big Redneck Vacation and The After Show right now @CMT…at least I think he does. He’s a man of few words.”

In a statement the new parents told People, “We are still in a bit of shock. It has been a long journey and the healthy birth of our son is a miracle.”

In an interview on The View in January Arnold revealed that he and his wife ended up turning to in vitro fertilization. When they got the happy news he admits it came as “a complete shock.”
