Congrats go out to American Idol 4 alum, Anthony Fedorov, and his fiancee Jennifer Paz. The couple welcomed their first child.

Their son, named Julian Paz Federov, born at 6:08 p.m. CDT in suburban Chicago, weighed in at  7lbs, 2 oz.

“We thought he was going to be an Easter baby,” Jennifer told The Hollywood Reporter, exclusively. “We tried to avoid having an April Fool’s baby but we decided he’s a fool for love.”

Anthony adds, “We sent private messages to our families, quoting the song lyric, ‘Wise man say, only fools rush in, and I can’t help falling in love with you.’ We can’t help falling in love with Julian.”

The couple were originally scheduled for a Caesarian on April 8, but her doctor advised moving up the birthdate when she began having contractions early.

“ I’ve wanted to be a father ever since I was a teenager,” Anthony explained. “When I was 14 years old, all I wanted to do was find the love of my life. I had no idea how that was going to happen or who that ultimate person would be. When I met Jennifer, I knew she was the one. Outside of being an artist/performer, I felt like my calling in life was to be a father.”

“The nurses were very excited because Anthony was so enthusiastic about changing Julian’s diapers in the hospital,” says Jennifer.

“Now I live for poopy diapers,” said Anthony, “It means his body is working properly. With every poop, I’m the happiest father in the world.”
