There was an extra special holiday gift for Nick Lachey and his wife, Vanessa, this holiday – they welcomed their third child, a baby boy, on Christmas Eve.

The couple wasted no time sharing the news and the first baby pic on social media, as well as their little guy’s adorable name, Phoenix. Phoenix is Greek for “blood red.”

Nick and Vanessa announced the baby’s birth on Instagram, writing: “It’s a very Merry Christmas indeed! We had our Christmas Miracle. Phoenix Robert Lachey decided to show up early and was born on Christmas Eve. Mommy, Daddy, Camden & Brooklyn LOVE You very much! #LacheyPartyOf5.”

While it’s not a full pic of little Phoenix, the snap shows his tiny hand grabbing his mom’s fingers. Aw!
