Sarah Levy's son may only be a few weeks old, but he already has a special bond with his grandfather, actor Eugene Levy.
In a new interview with Babe by HATCH, Levy shared that her father was "incredibly touched" by her decision to name her son James Eugene.
"Honestly, I couldn't think of another middle name for James," she said, noting that her family has a tradition of honoring other members with children's middle names. "It was just a nice way of honoring my father."

Levy, 36, welcomed her now 11-week-old son three weeks before her due date, meaning her family was spread out by the time she was born.
"Both my brother and dad were so excited to meet him. They were both away and planning to be home around the due date," she explained. "So we had the week to ourselves at the very beginning before everyone descended."
"James is also my parents' first grandchild," she added, noting that they've spent a lot of time together since James was born.
“It was a really incredible summer. He brought everyone even closer together.”

Levy was in labor for days before welcoming her son, but her doctor noted that there were "no signs of labour, no dilatation, nothing felt alarming at all".
Later, the contractions became so severe that she texted husband Graham Outerbridge to her doctor.
"Luckily we were a two minute drive from the hospital because I was already an inch dilated," she revealed. “That was at 12:45 a.m. and he was born at 10:30 a.m. the next morning. The labor and delivery went super smoothly and there he was and he was perfect.”
Despite the messy preparation, Levy said she was grateful for her "peaceful" work experience.
“My labor and delivery were so peaceful and I felt really relaxed. I was able to connect with my husband and our midwife and our doctor," she shared. "I heard Kacey Musgraves. I'm so glad it was."

Sarah first revealed she's expecting her first baby in May and shared a photo of herself smiling and cradling her baby bump while wearing a pair of striped shorts, an unbuttoned linen top and a fedora.
"We'll take all the salt and vinegar chips and the hottest hot sauce you've got, thanks!" she captioned the post, tagging Outerbridge.
Fellow Schitt's Creek star Annie Murphy expressed her excitement in the comments, writing, "Remember how pregnant you are?!"
Sarah married actor and producer Outerbridge in October 2021.
