Kaylee DeFer Welcomes First Child: Theodore Ignatius Fitzpatrick

Congratulations to Gossip Girl’s Kaylee DeFer and her rocker boyfriend Michael Fitzpatrick who welcomed a baby boy on Friday (September 20).

The couple have named him Theodore Ignatius Fitzpatrick. Theodore was born at 10:14 p.m. and weighed in at 8 pounds and 13 ounces.

“Kaylee was a rock star!” the proud new dad said of the birth.

Fitzpatrick was supposed to perform with his band in San Diego on Friday – but that changed when DeFer went into labor.

The band Fitz and the Tantrums tweeted on Saturday, “Congratulations to our partner in crime Fitz and our beautiful friend Kaylee on the birth of their beautiful son!!”

Defer’s pregnancy was a surprise. She told US Weekly in May, “We weren’t planning on getting pregnant, so right now we’re just enjoying being pregnant. We think it’s a boy. Well, the doctor is 95 percent sure it’s a boy. The baby was really shy that day. He was sleeping. We had a girl name, and when we found out it was probably a boy, for some reason we felt like we needed to meet him.”

She also said the pregnancy was great timing.

“I’ve been thinking about venturing into new creative outlets. Mostly writing, still in the acting genre. I have a lot of time on my hands. I’ve been wanting to take a break, and now I can do the things I didn’t have a chance to do before.”
