'Sopranos' star Drea de Matteo has given birth to a baby boy.

The actress - who also appeared in 'Friends' spin-off 'Joey alongside Matt Le Blanc - and her musician fiance Shooter Jennings welcomed their second child into the world this week.

Hierophant rocker Shooter announced the happy new on his twitter account on Thursday (07.04.11), and revealed he and Drea had decided to name the tot after his late father, country music star Waylon Jennings.

He tweeted: "Waylon Albert 'Blackjack' Jennings has arrived folks!"

Lots of the couple's friends took to the micro-blogging site to congratulate them, with one well-wisher being Samantha Ronson.

And the DJ - the ex-girlfriend of Lindsay Lohan - is already making plans for the baby when he gets older.

She wrote: "Congratulations to @ShooterJennings on the arrival of his new baby boy!! Can't wait to take him to a casino! (sic)"

Drea, 39, and Shooter, 31, already have a three-year-old daughter Alabama Gypsy Rose together.

The couple got engaged on June 11, 2009, when the musician proposed to the actress on stage during a concert at the Stanley Center in Utica, New York.

The baby's grandfather Waylon famously escaped death while he was touring with Buddy Holly as his bass player.

He was due to be a passenger on the plane that crashed and killed the 'Peggy Sue' singer on February 3, 1959, but gave up his seat to singer-and-songwriter J.P. 'The Big Bopper' Richardson.
