Jack White of the White Stripes and his wife, model Karen Elson, are the parents of a baby boy.

Henry Lee White was born Tuesday, a publicist for White said Wednesday. It’s the couple’s second child: He and Elson also have a 15-month-old daughter, Scarlett Teresa White.

“The new child and his mother are both feeling very healthy and happy,” White’s rep, Chloe Walsh, said in a statement to the Associated Press.

White, 32, married Elson, 28, in 2005. The couple started dating in 2004. Elson stars in the video for the White Stripes’ song, “Blue Orchid.”

Meanwhile, The White Stripes are on a break from their North America tour, which will resume Sept. 13 in Albuquerque, N.M.
