Their son, Luka Bodhi Colicchio, was born on August 1 at 7:55 p.m, weighing a healthy 6 lbs. 9 oz. and measuring 19 inches long. And according to a press representative from the Bravo network, "they're doing great!"

Proud father Colicchio also has another healthy 16-year-old son, Dante, from a previous marriage. Interestingly, in an interview two years ago, the "Top Chef" judge revealed the nerve-wracking situation behind his older son's birth. Dante was barely over 2 pounds when he was born, and was in the hospital for 2 months following. During that time, Colicchio was never certain that his son was going to survive. But over time, his son slowly healed. With a past newborn experience like this, it makes a healthy pregnancy and delivery that much more meaningful to Colicchio.

Tom will be taking some time off from work so that he can spend more time with his family during this important transition period in his life -- and the timing couldn't be better. Filming has already wrapped for season six of "Top Chef," set in the ever-lively city of Las Vegas, and will premiere August 19th.
