Superman lives on.
Alexandra Reeve Givens, the daughter of actor Christopher Reeve, has named her newborn son after her late father. She and husband Garren Givens welcomed Christopher Russel Reeve Givens on June 13, a family representative confirmed to People and Us Weekly.
Born in Washington, D.C., and weighing in at 8 lbs., 3 oz., little Christopher is the couple's first child after five years of marriage. His middle name comes from his paternal grandfather.
“The entire family is thriving during their first few weeks home,” the family rep told People, which also published photos of the baby.
Alexandra Reeve Givens, 31, is the second child of Reeve and then-partner Gae Exton. She currently serves as senior counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee and teaches at Columbia Law School. Garren Givens is director of the White House's Presidential Innovation Fellows program.
Christopher Reeve, who starred in four Superman movies, died of cardiac arrest in 2004 while directing the animated film "Everyone's Hero."
