Steve Kazee explained on his social media that fans were questioning where the name came from. He then went on to say, "We've had lots of questions about the name we chose for the little peanut so figured I would share a few things …" Kazee then explained that Callum means “Dove” in Gaelic, which was chosen "because he has been so sweet and peaceful since landing in our arms.” Michael, happens to also be Kazee’s middle name, and Rebel was chosen in honor of Kazee’s mother Reba.

Kazee then further explained, “I wanted a way to honor my mother. Her name was Reba but from a very young age her father called her Rebel. And so ... Callum Micahel Rebel Kazee was born.” The pair welcomed the baby boy into the world last Friday, and each eventually posted about the birth on social media. Dewan captioned a photo of her with Callum by saying, “And just like that, our hearts exploded into all of eternity and beyond. Welcome to the world you little angel! Callum Micahel Rebel Kazee 3/6/20.”

Kazee posted his own photo on social media and captioned it saying, “In an instant our universe burst wide open and nothing would ever be the same. Welcome to earth star child.” Dewan has been fairly open about showing off her pregnancy throughout, with behind-the-scenes IG photos of how she’s been preparing for the arrival of her son. And since giving birth, nothing much has changed, with Dewan posting photos on her Instagram stories of Callum’s feet and of her breastfeeding her newborn son.

Dewan and Kazee have been linked for over a year now, after Dewan split from actor and ex-husband Channing Tatum. The two share daughter Everly together. Dewan met Kazee when he was in the musical Once for which he was honored with a Tony award win. Dewan and Kazee have not been shy about highlighting their love for one another across social media and in interviews, and even just recently announcing their engagement. Congrats to the happy couple on their new bundle of joy.
