"OK, well, his name, we haven't said anything. My husband hopefully won't kill me for saying it, but his name is Rennie David Foster," she told co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager in the interview, which will air on March 19. "We picked Rennie 'cause I'd actually been in labour for a while. We didn't have a name picked out."

"We had a couple names," she added. "But my husband was on a text chain with his sisters and one of his sisters suggested an old family name. It was his great-grandfather's name, his great-uncle's name, so it has a long history in his family. My husband said, 'Hi, Ren Foster,' and so we said, 'That's a good name. It's a strong name.'"

McPhee shared her first photo of newborn Rennie in March via her Instagram Story.

"Just in case you were wondering, I love being a mommy," she wrote alongside the snap.

"Katharine McPhee and David Foster have welcomed a healthy baby boy," a rep for the couple said in a statement to People. "Mum, Dad and son are all doing wonderfully."
