LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Kevin Costner and his wife are proud parents of a baby boy. Costner's wife Christine Baumgartner, 34, gave birth to Hayes Logan Costner on Thursday night in Los Angeles, said his publicist Arnold Robinson. He weighs 8 pounds, 15 ounces.

Costner went back to the old West to find a name for his new son. The 54-year-old actor told AP Radio before the baby was born that he would call him Hayes after "a cowboy character" in a Western he plans to film. Costner calls Hayes "a great Western name."

He's the second son for Costner and Baumgartner. Their other child, Cayden, is 21 months old.

Costner also has three grown children from a previous marriage.
