While being interviewed on the Today show, Russell was happy to reveal that they had a boy and called him Sam.
Today host Matt Lauer confirmed that the 40-year-old had not revealed the baby’s gender or name publicly.
"You just had a baby about a month and a half ago. Am I correct in reading, Ms. Russell, that you have not yet revealed the gender of the baby or the baby's name?"
When it was confirmed that she hadn’t yet, Lauer said she could reveal this information during their interview.
"He's so good. He's big and fat and nice," she said.
Russell was on the show to promote her upcoming film Free State of Jones.
