Jon Jones’s wife Sarah gave birth to a baby boy on New Year’s Eve. His name is Hudson Lennon. He weighed in at 7 lbs., 8 oz. and is 21 inches long.
The couple tell PEOPLE, “We are ecstatic about this beautiful baby boy that came into our world. Words cannot describe our excitement and joy.”
With their son arriving a week past his due date, “Sarah and I feel very fortunate that we were able to stick to our birth plan and have Hudson naturally.”
“The birth was extremely smooth. We left our house at 10 a.m. for the birthing center when contractions were four minutes apart and he was born just a few short hours later. We had a great birth team who helped us through everything.”
“The rest of the band went on stage without me for the second time in our careers. They are truly great friends for letting Sarah and I share this wonderful experience together. We were home within four hours of the birth to celebrate New Year’s Eve as a family — mostly holding Hudson in amazement.”
