Jason Priestley is a Second Time Dad
Actor Jason Priestley must be feeling pretty good right now. In the latest bit of good news, his wife Naomi Lowde-Priestley gave birth to a baby boy last Thursday. This is the second child for the couple. They also have a two year old daughter, Ava. So far not many details have been offered about the newest Priestley. The only thing we know is that the baby was born in Los Angeles. Priestley and Naomi have been married since May, 2005. After the birth of Ava, the actor was quoted as saying, “I love being a father. It’s totally ineffable. I love changing diapers. I love the whole thing — I’m all in.” No doubt having to do this times two should bring even more joy to the pair.
Priestley won a legion of fans playing all around good guy Brandon Walsh on the hit series, Beverly Hills 90210. The show had quite a run from 1990 to 2000. Maybe only diehard fans know that Priestley was actually born in Canada – Vancouver British Columbia to be exact. During an appearance on Late Night with Conan O’Brien in July 2007, he revealed that he had become an American citizen weeks before.
He had been previously married to makeup artist Ashlee Petersen in 1999, but that union fell apart in 2000. His current wife is also a makeup artist. He has a twin sister named Justine Priestley who also acts. In fact he tried hard to get her to attend auditions for Beverly Hills 90210 so she could play his sister on the show.
Over the last few months celeb babies seem to be arriving almost every week. Congratulations to Jason Priestly and his wife Naomi on the birth of their second child. I wish him the best with his growing family.
