Suzy Preston & Matt Hoover Baby

SECOND SON FOR REALITY SHOW SWEETHEARTS ~ A People exclusive just in time for a whole new season of The Biggest Loser, alumni Matt and Suzy (Preston) Hoover delivered their second boy on September 11th, 2008. Jax Paul arrived in Seattle at Valley Medical Hospital and weighed 7.6 lbs. and measured 18.75 inches long. He is a little brother for Rex Timothy, 14 months.

"We're so excited to add a new member to our family!" says Matt. "We're adding another healthy Hoover to our family and look forward to raising both boys in a healthy way with information we learned on the show."

As for the name Jax, Matt says, "Our first son is named Rex, and that was unique and we wanted something that sounded similar that was also unique."

The couple met when they were both competitors on the second season of The Biggest Loser in 2005. Matt, a former wrestling coach, ended up winning. He proposed to second runner up Suzy Preston on the Today Show in March of 2006 and they were married in 2006 in Jamaica.

The couple have started a new company,, a site that seeks to help people reach their health, fitness, financial, romantic and spiritual goals. Matt also co-wrote a diet and fitness manual "Matt Hoover's Guide to Life, Love and Losing Weight" with exercise physiologist Dr. Sheri Colberg, which is slated for release later this month.
