"It's definitely an amazing feeling," Loney said. "You don't know what to really expect until it happens. It's a feeling like no other."
James Jordan's due date had been July 24. Loney explained that Nadia wanted to give birth naturally, but given the baby's size, the couple chose to have labor induced, which led to Friday's birth.
When asked if the name had any significance, Loney responded: "I know I came up with the name, but she liked it also."
Loney arrived in Toronto Sunday at 2 a.m. ET and said he actually managed to get some sleep in the aftermath of the birth.
