Tom Arnold was spotted taking his son Jax to his first birthday party in Century City, Calif. last Sunday (April 6). The celebration was held at Giggles N’ Hugs.
The actor later tweeted a photo along with the caption: “Jax turned one today and ate his first cake. It was daddy’s 10,000th.”
The actor recently wrote an essay for Today claiming he lost 100 pounds.
He wrote: “I’ve heard parents say their children saved their lives. I always thought that sounded lame. I thought a lot of things parents said sounded lame until the moment my son was born and they all rang true. I’ve always wanted a child and it was a terribly long, 25-year journey for me to get here.
“But when my son Jax was born last April, I immediately knew that this is the exact time I was supposed to become a father. Of course if I’d known that 25 years ago I would’ve saved a butt-load of money and stress but … I am in the right place in my life, with the right partner.”
He continued, “It’s as if all the times I prayed and begged my son to come, he just said “Dad, I love you and I will be there as soon as you get it all together.”
