Kelsey Grammer Channels 'Frasier' When Naming Newborn Son

Kelsey Grammer and wife Kayte Grammer have welcomed a baby boy and the reason behind his name is giving us major "Frasier" vibes. 

Auden James Ellis Grammer - what a name!

"The name was chosen to honour the great poet W.H. Auden and James is after another great poet and singer James Taylor—two of our favorites," the couple said in a statement. 


Meanwhile the "Ellis" name came from Grammer's own maternal great-grandfather.

"He was a colourful character to say the least and we wanted to give the name a second chance."

This is Kelsey's seventh child, the third with wife Katye.

The pair also have four year old Faith and two year old Kelsey Gabriel Jr. 

Kelsey is also the grandfather, with his eldest daughter Spencer giving birth to Emmett in 2011.
