Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. gave birth to a bouncing baby boy on September 24 but the name was never released – until now. Welcome to the world, Rocky James Prinze! Following the then-unnamed baby’s birth, People reported that Gellar and her hubby were “thrilled to announce” the news and that “mother and baby are doing great.” But all excitement aside, fans and friends were dying to know the little tots name. The couple exclusively revealed their son’s name to Us Weekly after weeks of secrecy. The name is that of two very famous boxers, Marciano and the famous, fictional Balboa. Rocky is of English origin, meaning “stony” or “craggy” and is sometimes used as a nickname for “Rocco,” according to Us. As for this kiddos middle name, James is the same as Daddy Prinze’s middle name. Gellar, 35, and Prinze Jr, 36, have been married for 10 years and have starred in several movies together in the late 90s early 2000s. Photo Courtesy of
