Entertainment Tonight correspondent Brooke Anderson has welcomed her third child – a son named James Arthur Walker, IV.  The baby boy was born on April 19th, weighing 7 lbs. and measuring 20 inches long.

Anderson shared the happy news via Instagram by posting a photo of herself holding her baby boy.  “A newborn baby is truly like touching the hand of God.  It is the closest thing to perfection that will ever be.  The outside world simply stopped and ceased to exist when I finally met and held my seconds old little one.  Welcome to the world sweet angel.  Our baby boy. James. We look forward to guiding you through life as best we know how.  We love you. Always.”

Anderson told People that April 19th was already a special date for their family. “[It] also happens to be my father’s birthday, so it is also super special for ‘Papa’ that he got a new grandson on his birthday.”

Anderson and her husband, Jim Walker, announced their pregnancy in January and chose not to find out the baby’s gender until delivery.  James joins big sisters Kate Victoria, 6, and Lily Georgina, 2, whom Brooke described as “pumped” for a new sibling.
