Jack White and his model wife Karen Elson welcomed a new life into the world yesterday with the birth of their second child, a baby boy they've named Henry Lee White. The couple also have a 15-month-old daughter, Scarlett Teresa White.

One can only wonder if Henry Lee will grow up to be a bass player. The Stripes resume their current tour in Albuquerque, N.M., on Sept. 13th.
