- Congratulations to Jessie Godderz, who recently became a father. He announced last weekend that he is the very proud dad of Lucas Princeton Godderz. Lucas weighed in at 8 lbs., 6 oz., and measured 22¼ inches long at the time of his birth. Godderz spoke to Entertainment Weekly about becoming a father for the first time.
"I couldn't be happier," Godderz said. "I now fully understand what the expression 'beaming with pride' means. Whenever I look at him, I am overwhelmed with love and devotion. He has my unconditional love and support forever. He truly is my world."
