Philip & Lindsay DeFranco Announce The Birth Of Their First Child

After months of pregnancy updates on Twitter and Facebook the time has finally come. YouTube Royalty Philip & Lindsay DeFranco have announced the birth of their first child – A baby boy!

Baby DeFranco was born yesterday afternoon at a Los Angeles-area hospital, weighing just 8lbs 11oz. Friend and fans have waited patiently and with bated breath to learn the name of the baby, which the couple kept a secret… Until now.

The jubilant new father took to Twitter to share the name of his new child: Philip DeFranco III, or ‘Trey.’

Many fans guessed Phil and Linz would continue to Philip DeFranco line, naming the baby after PhillyD (Philip DeFranco Jr.) and PapaDeFranco (Philip DeFranco Sr.). DeFranco is, of course, a stage name adopted after people kept butchering Phil’s real last name Franchini (pronounced Fran-keeny).

After hearing Lindsay was in labor, the crew at Phil’s company (DeFranco Creative) got in touch with a number of popular YouTubers and made a touching video with the rest of the team. Check it out below:

Philip DeFranco Jr., 28, and Lindsay Jordan Doty, 26, were dating for almost seven years before DeFranco finally popped the question on August 16, 2013 during his live show in Tempe, Arizona, “DeFranco Loves Dat AZ.” The surprise proposal was filmed by the SourceFed crew and the video has now been viewed over 1 million times. Two months after the proposal, on October 8 2013, the couple announced they were expecting their first child in April.

Congratulations to the new parents – We wish you all the best!
