Lee Ryan Debuts Rayn Lee Amethyst

Former Blue singer Lee Ryan and his fiance, Sammi Miller, introduce their now 6-week-old son Rayn Lee Amethyst in Hello! magazine this week.

Lee and Sammi met on MySpace in 2006, and after a year of chatting, they met in person and got engaged. The couple denied rumors of a break up when Sammi was five months pregnant, and plan to marry this year. The 25-year-old says fatherhood is the best thing that’s ever happened to him, gushing, “I’ve got this incredible feeling of responsibility and protectiveness. It’s great – I love it.”

Miller, 25, adds, “I couldn’t do it without him. It’s been an incredible year for us. We keep looking at Rayn and saying to each other we just can’t believe he’s ours.”

Of the birth, Lee says,

“As soon as he arrived, I can remember we both started crying. It was a very emotional moment. We’d waited nine months for this and finally we were at the end. On seeing him come out, I think I went into a bit of shock. We’d chosen the name some time ago. We both just liked it. It’s an anagram of Ryan. And Amethyst came about because we wanted a precious stone in there. If we ever have a girl, she’ll be called Rose Quartz.”

And does Lee want his son to follow in his footsteps? You bet!

“Rayn’s everything that I’m working for. I can’t wait till he gets older, then I can teach him the guitar and piano and how to sing. I also can’t wait for him to appreciate my jokes.”

David Alan Basche & Alysia Reiner Introduce Livia Charles

David Alan Basche, 40, and Sideways star Alysia Reiner, 38, introduce their 7-week-old daughter, Livia Charles Basche.

“She knows how to mess up that diaper right on cue,” David, 40, tells Life & Style about his new baby girl. He went on to say, “She has perfect comedic timing, just like her mom.”

Incidentally, timing was everything when it came to Livia’s birth. “We made it to the birthing center just in time,” says Alysia describing their ride in rush-hour traffic on Dec. 5. “I went into labor at 2:45 p.m. and gave birth at 5:14. She came so quickly. I was very, very lucky.” David went on to say, “I think it happened too fast for me to be a basket case,” says David, who stars on USA’s The Starter Wife. “I’m a little bit of a basket case now.”

Congratulations to the Reiner-Basche family!
