The extended Glee family just got a little bit bigger. Glee vocal producer and recording engineer Alex Anders has just welcomed a baby son!
On March 27, Alex announced the news on Twitter, writing, “At the hospital this morning. Our baby decided he wants to be born a couple of weeks early! : )”
Blake Jenner (Ryder) saw the news and responded, “@alxanders YEAH MAN!!! Congrats!!!”
He’s not the only one. Alex Newell (Unique) wrote, “@alxanders yay!!!!! Congratulation!!!”
Later, Kevin McHale (Artie) tweeted, “@alxanders congrats!!!! :)))”
Lea Michele (Rachel) wrote, "Congratulations to @alxanders on a healthy baby boy!!!! A new member of the #glee family!"
Amber Riley (Mercedes) tweeted, "@alxanders @ValerieAnders congrats guys! Aaawwww looks like you’ll be building a nursery in Studio G! Lol"
Alex is the brother of Glee’s executive music producer, Adam Anders, who Glee Project fans may recognize from his appearances on the series. Adam’s wife, Nicki Anders, will certainly be familiar. She is The Glee Project’s vocal coach, and has appeared on every episode of each of the two seasons.
In fact, Nicki was pregnant during filming for The Glee Project 2, and she gave birth to a little boy on May 12, 2012. This means that Alex’s newborn son will have an older cousin who is less than a year older than him.
We can only imagine how much fun those two will having growing up together — and how much trouble they might get into!
