Sarah Levy and Eugene Levy have leveled up their bond and it’s all thanks to her bébé. Sarah recently welcomed her first child with husband Graham Outer bridge, a baby boy named James Eugene.

“My dad was incredibly touched that we named him James Eugene, and honestly, I could not imagine any other middle name for James,” Sarah said in a recent interview with Babe by Hatch. “In my family we name people after middle names. It was just a nice way to honor my dad. As if the little one’s arrival couldn’t be any more special, Sarah noted that James is the first grandchild for her parents, Eugene and Deborah Divine, which has “brought everyone even closer.”

As a mom, Sarah shared that she now grasps things she didn’t before about their family being in the spotlight. I think about it now and understand why my parents worked so hard to divert me and my brother from show business,” she told the outlet. “It’s obviously so challenging. I see my son now and understand the desire to protect him.”

Sarah explained of her time on Schitt’s Creek, “I’m so grateful I had that experience with my family pre-baby, so if bringing him into our fold and having that same experience again is possible, I’m more than open to it.
