Chris and his wife, Kaitlyn, welcomed their third child and second daughter, Violet Reid Lucas, on Sept. 3. The couple plans to call her by her middle name, but chose “Violet” in honor of Kaitlyn’s great-grandmother.

Chris tells People, “We are just blessed to have another absolutely beautiful little girl in our family. My wife is my rock and backbone that enables me to do what I do. To see her with our three kids makes me look up to God and say, ‘Thank you for giving me this life and showing me what it’s all about!’ ”

Chris and Kaitlyn are also parents to son Caden, 7, and daughter Remi McKenna, 17 months.
