AJ Cook brought a baby boy into this world this week with her husband Nathan Andersen close by her side. The new bundle of joy has been named Phoenix Sky, and in addition to a great name and gifted parents, he also has a six-year-old older brother to meet, Mekhai Allan. HNGN News reports this Friday, July 24, 2015, that the “Criminal Minds” actress views the birth of her new son as the greatest belated birthday present her family could have asked for together, given that she just turned 37 on Wednesday.
She may be best known for a leading role on “Criminal Minds,” but to her loved ones, AJ Cook is just a wife and mom. The 37-year-old actress confirmed this week that her new baby, the second son in her growing family, was just born on Thursday, July 23. Her husband Nathan seemed equally excited at the bundle of joy to enter their happy lives.
Courtesy of People News this afternoon, fans of Cook are also privy to some details on Phoenix Sky. He was fortunately born a very healthy boy just before 6 am yesterday morning. He clocked in at a weight of seven pounds and six ounces, and measured just under 21 inches. There is no doubt that the couple are looking forward to introducing their 6-year-old son, Mekhai, to his new baby brother very soon.
Although we only learned of AJ Cook’s baby being brought into the world this week, fans of the “Criminal Minds” star first heard about the coming arrival of the bundle of joy back in March of this year. The actress went on her official Instagram page to share with the rest of the online world that she was going to have another baby. Both AJ and Nathan were thrilled to be growing their family together.
“Miracles do happen and don’t believe anyone who tells you otherwise,” the pregnant mom posted to the social media and photos haring site. She also included a picture of her big baby belly.
Not long afterwards, husband Nathan Andersen also told everyone that they would be having a son. “Since [A.J.] announced we are expecting a new addition to the clan, I guess it’s my responsibility to inform everyone it’s a boy!”
A new child is certainly a wonderful birthday gift for AJ Cook. The “Criminal Minds” actress just celebrated her special day a mere 24 hours before giving birth to her son. The baby boy, Phoenix Sky Andersen, will likely be able to celebrate his own name day with a special birthday bash alongside his mother in the not-so-distant future. Husband Nathan and AJ have been married together for 14 years.
