“This kid already has it all figured out,” Kazee captioned the Instagram post. “This is definitely not his first go round the cosmic wheel. Say hello to the world Callum Kazee! You certainly know how to make an entrance pal!”
Dewan – who shares 6-year-old daughter Everly with ex-husband Channing Tatum – told PEOPLE about welcoming their son, who was born via cesarean section, while one of her go-to soothing songs was being played in the background.
“It’s a very peaceful song,” the 39-year-old actress said. “It always puts me at ease. I put that on our playlist and I said to Steve, ‘If I ever start to look like I’m getting anxious or if I was having a rough time, just please play that.’ [Callum] was actually born to that song.”
The new mom of two said the Kazee was “incredible” throughout the pregnancy and the birth.
“It was incredible to watch the awe in his eyes of experiencing birth for the very first time, and the first time he laid eyes on our son,” Dewan recollected. “He was crying the whole time and he cut the umbilical cord. Seeing his transformation of becoming a dad was one of the best things I’ve ever witnessed. It was beautiful.”
She added, “Birth is such a bonding experience, you’re transformed at the end of it.”
When announcing Callum to her fans via Instagram, Dewan shared a black-and-white photo of herself holding her baby boy for the first time earlier this month. “And just like that, our hearts exploded into all of eternity and beyond ❤️🌈❤️ Welcome to the world you little angel! ❤️,” she captioned the post, sharing details about her son’s birth date and full name: Callum Michael Rebel Kazee.
The first time dad also shared details about the name he and Dewan chose for their son, writing, “We’ve had lots of questions about the name we chose for the little peanut so figured I would share a few things … “
He went on writing they were inspired to call their son Callum, which means “Dove” in Gaelic, “because he has been so sweet and peaceful since landing in our arms.” Michael is Kazee’s middle name, and Rebel was chosen in honor of his mother Reba.
“I wanted a way to honor my mother. Her name was Reba but from a very young age her father called her Rebel,” he added. “And so … Callum Michael Rebel Kazee was born.”
