Ian Ziering & Wife Welcome Baby No. 2: Penna Mae

Congratulations to Ian Ziering and his wife Erin who welcomed their second daughter – Penna Mae. The baby was born on Thursday (April 25) in Los Angeles. It was also Mia Loren’s second birthday!

Penna was born at 9:21 a.m. and weighed in at 6 lbs., 9 oz. Ziering told People, “We didn’t plan it! Mia was born a week late and Penna was a week early.”

The actor said that Mia got to meet her little sister the night before.

“She couldn’t wait to meet her. When she saw Penna she said, ‘Baby sister!’”

The couple came up with the name through family ties. Penna is in honor of Ian’s late father and Mae has been the middle name on Erin’s side for four generations.

“We are ecstatic,” says Ziering. “Having a family is the realization of a dream for us both.”

When the baby was brought home on Friday afternoon – Mia was all ready for her.

The 90210 alum laughed, “She (Mia) had all her toys lined up and ready to show Penna.”

    Mae is beautiful. But Penna remindes me, too, on the italian word ‘Penne’ for noodles and the German word ‘Penner’, a very worse word for homeless.
