Olympic champion ice skater Scott Hamilton and his wife, Tracie, celebrated the birth of their second son on Monday at a Tennessee hospital, the couple confirmed exclusively to PEOPLE.

"Mom and son are doing just fine," Hamilton said in a text message.

Maxx Hamilton arrived at 7:51 a.m. He weighed in at 7 lbs., 8 oz., and measured 20 inches long, Hamilton said. He joins big brother, 4-year-old Aidan.

Hamilton, 49, and Tracie, 38, have been married since 2002, and they reside in Nashville, Tenn.

Hamilton won the gold medal in men's ice skating at the Sarajevo Olympics in 1984. He is expected to provide commentary for the upcoming U.S. Figure Skating Championships this weekend in St. Paul, Minn., but those plans could change due to Maxx's arrival.

The champ played a skating announcer in last year's comedy Blades of Glory starring Will Ferrell and Jon Heder. Last fall, Hamilton completed taping a series of episodes for the ABC TV series Wanna Bet? and AOL Television's Jury Duty.

Hamilton continues to co-produce Stars on Ice, which he conceived and co-founded in 1986. He retired from full-time touring with the production during its 2000-2001 season. Known the last several years as Smucker's Stars on Ice, the show entered its 22nd consecutive U.S. touring season this month.
