Wait, American Pie's Chris Klein is a dad now?

American Pie star's bitty baby gets a name he can grow into

If you still think of Chris Klein as the slightly less chauvinist character in the American Pie movies, get ready to see him in a whole new light. Klein's now a proud papa! Wife Laina Rose Thyfault gave birth to the couple's first child, a little boy, on Saturday, July 23.

The couple was able to bask in the glow of a newborn for a few days, but now they've decided to come out and share the little guy's first photo — as well as his name. First... the cuteness!

So how'd do Klein and Thyfault fare at naming? Pretty darn well! Frederick Easton Klein is a mix of classic and trendy, with the first name falling right smack in the middle of the Social Security Administration's top 1,000 names for boys in 2015 at 517.

The name peaked in popularity back in 2000, when it was 395th on the list, so chances are little Fred won't have to label everything with "Frederick K" when he starts school. The name itself means "peaceful ruler," which bodes well for the little guy's future.

Easton, on the other hand, was number 78 on the list last year and was bandied about as a possible moniker for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's little boy (they went in another direction... yes, we had to). Ironically, although the couple is using it as a middle name, the name actually means surname!

In a world where parents are always trying to top one another with unique baby names and sometimes take it a little too far, it's nice to see a celebrity couple giving their little one a name he can grow into with pride.
