'Man vs. Wild's' Bear Grylls Has a Baby Boy


Who's your huckleberry? Nope, it's not Doc Holliday, but Bear Gryll's newborn son.

The "Man vs. Wild" host and his wife Shara welcomed their third son, Huckleberry Edward Jocelyne Grylls, on Thursday, Jan. 15 in the UK.

The 7 lb., 7 oz. baby and the mother are both "doing great."

Huckleberry, a reference to Mark Twain's lovable scamp Huckleberry Finn, is a name shared by Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley's son William Huckleberry.

The couple has two other children: Jesse, 5, and Maramaduke, 2 1/2.

Grylls, 34, who had injured his shoulder while in Antarctica in December, appears on Discovery Channel's "Man vs. Wild" on Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The upcoming Jan. 19 episode has the adventurer visit the Yukon.
