A precious son after his own father, well at least in name, since, at just a few weeks old, we don’t know much about who new Stephen L. Hightower, III, son to 32-year-old businessman Stephen Hightower, II and 27-year-old former Young and the Restless actor Julia Pace Mitchell, will be (though we imagine he’ll be every bit as charming as his parents).
The babe was born in Middletown Ohio, on May 22, reported People. The couple, who entered wedded bliss in September, 2011, also had their reception in Ohio, at the Shaker Run Golf Club, in Lebanon, in front of 150 family members and friends, after completing their nuptials at Hightower’s home church in Middletown.
With Greek origins, the name Stephen translates to “crown.” Saint Stephen is regarded as the first Christian martyr, as written in the New Testament. Nine Popes have shared the name Stephen, as has one King of England.
With his mother’s theatrical roots (Mitchell’s mother, Judy Pace Flood, and father, Don Mitchell, were both actors), father’s business sense (Hightower, II is VP of Hightowers Petroleum) and home addresses in L.A. as well as Middletown, this newborn is sure to become one well-rounded little prince.
