After naming their first-born girl Moxie CrimeFighter last June, comedian Penn Jillette and wife came up with something a bit more mainstream for their new son — Zolten Penn, who was born Monday.
“Zolten is a common Hungarian name, it’s my wife’s maiden name and most importantly, it’s the name of Dracula’s dog,” Jillette, the 51-year-old larger half of the comedy-and-magic duo Penn & Teller, said in a statement.
Jillette left in the middle of his daily radio show on the CBS/Free FM network to be with his wife, 40-year-old Emily, in a Las Vegas hospital Monday afternoon, publicist Glenn Alai said.
Zolten Penn Jillette weighed 8 pounds, 13 ounces.
Penn & Teller perform nightly at the Rio hotel-casino in Las Vegas and star in their own television show in its fourth season on Showtime.
