Grey’s Anatomy star welcomes a second child – we LOVE the name

Welcome baby Maceo!

Grey's Anatomy star Jesse Williams is now a father of two, after welcoming a second child with wife Aryn Drake-Lee.

The couple, who already have a 21-month old daughter named Sadie, confirmed the arrival of their son this week.

Little Maceo was born two months ago but the happy parents chose to keep his birth under wraps until now. We're loving his unusual name – it's of Spanish origin and means "son of God."

Former public high school teacher Jesse began to study acting in 2005 and won the role of Dr. Avery on the popular medical drama four years later.

Speaking at a recent Clearasil Teacher Truths event for troubled teens, Jesse said being a parent was equal parts "exciting and terrifying."

The 34-year-old says he's starkly aware of how technology has changed how children live their lives these days, and it's something he'll keep in mind when parenting.

"I try to raise them [Sadie and Maceo] with the greatest values from my life, but times are completely different now," he told Us Weekly earlier this week.

Jesse's Grey's Anatomy co-star Ellen Pompeo also chose to keep the arrival of her second child a secret for several months, when she welcomed a baby by surrogate last year.

"I felt an obligation to keep the surrogate's privacy – that was of the upmost importance," she explained.

Two secret babies in one year – sounds more like a Grey's Anatomy plot line than real life…
