Colicchio– party of five! A big CONGRATS goes out to Top Chef: All-Stars judge, Tom Colicchio and his wife, Lori Silverbush. The couple just welcomed another son to their family of foodies yesterday (March 22) in New York City! What did they name their newest little bundle? Keep reading for all the details!

It’s a boy!

Bravo’s Top Chef: All-Stars judge, Tom Colicchio took to his Twitter page yesterday to announce the birth of his son, Mateo Lev Colicchio.

The baby was born to the happy couple at 12:11 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon (just in time to catch his first episode of Top Chef!) in New York City, weighing 7 pounds and 9 ounces.

According to a rep for the family, both mom and baby are doing well. And in true Top Chef fashion, instead of noshing on boring hospital food after the baby’s delivery, the family was served a meal prepared by the chef de cuisine at Craft, James Tracey.

We’re sure that Tom’s Top Chef co-stars will soon be sending along their congrats; especially Gail Simmons, who’s been a friend of Colicchio for many years, and was even at the hospital when his son, Luka was born.

“Tom and I knew each other long before the show and I know his older son quite well,” Simmons said after Luka’s birth. “I think he’s an awesome dad. I’m just so excited that he’s reliving it again. He loves kids and he loves his family.”

This is the third son for Tom Colicchio, 48, and Lori Silverbush’s second. Mateo Lev joins big brothers Dante, 17, and Luka Bodhi, who’s 19 months old.

Tom and Lori were married in 2001.

Congratulations again to the entire Colicchio family!
