Stage actors and married couple Jenny Powers and Matt Cavenaugh welcomed George Matthew Cavenaugh into the world July 24 at 1:56 AM ET.

George Matthew, who shares a birthday with Powers' father, Dave Powers, weighed in at 7 lbs. 2 oz. and is 20 inches long. Mother and child are doing very well.

"George is definitely soothed by music," Powers told Playbill.com "Singing to him helps with the diaper changing!"

Cavenaugh added, "And he has huge feet, which make us think he could be the next LeBron!"
