Arrow star Stephen Amell and wife Cassandra Jean ‘welcome second child’

Stephen Amell and his wife Cassandra Jean have reportedly become parents together for the second time.

Arrow star Stephen, 41, and his wife Cassandra, 36, welcomed their new arrival in Los Angeles last month and have named the child Bowen, according to TMZ.

The couple already have a nine-year-old daughter named Maverick, whom they welcomed into the world in 2013.

The media outlet hinted that the baby may have been welcomed by a surrogate, as Jean was apparently not pregnant when she attended a music festival in April.

The couple and their daughter had also reportedly attended an event a few days before the new baby was born.

Prior to his current marriage to Jean, Stephen was married to Carolyn Lawrence.

The couple married in 2007 but ended their relationship three years later.

He later met his now-wife, Jean, and the couple married in a ceremony in the Caribbean in 2012, and the newlyweds held a second ceremony in New Orleans the following year.

Canadian actor Stephen is known for playing the lead role of Oliver Queen on the CW superhero series Arrow, which he held for eight years between 2012 and 2020.

Though the series has come to an end, the star said he wouldn’t rule out returning to the series should the opportunity arise.

“Oh sure,” actor Den of Geek said of a potential return.

“I owe so much to the people at DC, The CW and Warner Bros. Television. I love the character so much and love her even more now that it’s been two years since we wrapped the show… But having a little space now, I saw that I miss it.

“I look back on it very, very, very fondly… Listen, I’m the namesake. So if I can ever help in any way, if I can serve the Arrowverse in any way, shape or form, or even better take it to a new place, which I think would be the more interesting way, be it in a limited capacity or on another platform, maybe one where we could show blood, that would be really cool.”

He added: “What means a lot to me is that we were able to control the ending. It’s so rare. To have this conversation [producer] Greg Berlanti during season 6, and deciding that seven and then an abridged version of season 8 would wrap up the story is just such a blessing because we have to get it right. We have to say goodbye to people properly. How it should end up for any superhero without superpowers is in the bottom of my mind.

“Although I think Oliver just turned into energy. So you know, never say never.”
