The comedian and Room 101 host welcomed son Buzz Cody with girlfriend Cath Mason earlier today (May 26), announcing the news on his Absolute Radio show.
According to the Daily Mail, Skinner explained that he had named his new child, who weighed in at 9lbs, after US astronaut Buzz Aldrin, adding: "Now I know celebrity types get condemned for giving their babies unusual names.
"So this is the name that I went for. He's called Buzz. B-U-Z-Z. If you're my age, obviously he's after Buzz Aldrin, the second man on the moon. For you youngsters listening, yes, it's that puppet from Toy Story."
He also described Buzz's birth, saying: "Cath was already in mighty labour when we arrived. We had the exciting five o'clock drive across London with me very worried about her and slightly worried about the upholstery.
"I'm just glad he's out and he's well and his mother is okay and all that."
Skinner had revealed that Mason was pregnant on his radio show in January.
