Actress and performer Jenna Dewan and fiancé Steve Kazee are figuring out a routine with their newborn son, Callum Michael Rebel, and enjoying every moment together.
In an Instagram story shortly after Callum was born, Kazee explained that his son’s name means “Dove” in Gaelic. The couple, he noted, chose the name “because he has been so sweet and peaceful since landing in our arms.” Michael is Kazee’s middle name, while Rebel was chosen as a way to “honor my mother,” Kazee said. “Her name was Reba but from a very young age her father called her Rebel.”
The couple, who got engaged last month, has been sharing images and videos of their 1-week-old ever since he was welcomed into the world. Some of the photos include shots of Dewan snuggling up with Callum on her chest and Kazee taking care of his son during the “early morning shift.”

Dewan also shared a photo of Callum last week noting that hanging out with her son was “social quarantine at its finest.” The star later corrected herself, rewriting the caption so that it said “social distancing,” rather than “social quarantine.” She then poked fun at herself by adding the hashtag, “#babybrain”. The couple welcomed Callum, their first child together, on March 6.
“And just like that, our hearts exploded in to all of eternity and beyond,” Dewan wrote when she shared the news. “Welcome to the world, you little angel.”
Kazee also used a sweet pic of himself holding his son’s hand, saying, “In an instant, our universe burst wide open and nothing would ever be the same. Welcome to earth star child.” Dewan is also mom to Everly, whom she shares custody of with ex-husband, Channing Tatum.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
