The actor opened up about his son's name on his Instagram Story on Tuesday night, sharing that he and Dewan had gotten "lots of questions" about it. He shared that the couple chose Callum, which means "Dove" in Gaelic, "because he has been so sweet and peaceful since landing in our arms." Michael is Kazee’s middle name and the newborn was given Rebel as an additional moniker to honor Kazee's mom, Reba. "I wanted a way to honor my mother," he wrote. "Her name was Reba but from a very young age her father called her Rebel."

"And so … Callum Michael Rebel Kazee was born," Kazee's story concluded.

Dewan and Kazee confirmed that they were expecting in September after around one year of dating. Dewan also shares 6-year-old daughter Everly with ex-husband Channing Tatum.

"[Steve] you are a gift from above and i couldn't be more excited to be expanding our family together...! Thank you guys for all the love!!"
