justin guar 'American Idol' alum Justin Guarini, Reina Capodici welcome son William Neko“American Idol” alum Justin Guarini, 32, and his wife Reina Capodici welcomed their first child together on Tuesday, Apr. 26. Their son, William Neko Bell Guarini, was born at 6:26 a.m., his rep Jeff Ballard tells People. William weighed in at 7 lbs., 2 oz.

Guarini wrapped his role in “American Idiot” on Sunday and says William is “quite a polite fellow for waiting until late Monday, early Tuesday to make his entrance. With a full hear of curly brown hair, wide open and alert eyes he came charging into the world.”

He adds, “Reina is doing wonderfully and should be given a medal for going 10 months and 1 week with child. She performed beautifully and only had to push for 15-20 munutes before the babe arrived. We’re resting comfortable in the hospital and can’t wait to introduce him to his big sister.”

Capodici has a daughter, Lola, 5, from a previous relationship.
