Bust out the baby-blue cigars: There's a new celebrity baby on the scene.

E! News confirms that Glee actress Naya Rivera gave birth to a baby boy on September 17 in Los Angeles. He's her first child with husband Ryan Dorsey.

What's the kiddo called? Rivera and Dorsey went the traditional celebrity route by giving their son an untraditional name: Josey Hollis Dorsey. Josey is listed as a girl's name of Hebrew origin meaning "Jehovah increases" on baby name sites, and doesn't immediately register as a boy's name. So, hey, here's to being the first!

We're also not sure if Josey is pronounced like "Josie" (as in, "and the Pussycats"), or like the Portuguese pronunciation of José (as in, soccer manager José Mourinho). Here's hoping the new parents enlighten us. Welcome to the world, JoHoDo.
