The couple welcomed their second child in LA last month. According to TMZ, baby Bowen Amell, their son, joins his sister, Maverick Alexandra Jean Amell, born in 2013.
Sources speculate that their son's birth was via a surrogate as Jean did not have a baby bump during her public appearance in April, a few weeks after Bowen's delivery.
Currently, the couple is keeping details of their son very private. This was unlike Maverick's birth, where a few minutes after her arrival, a post was shared welcoming and announcing the tiny human.

These two have emerged triumphant in their marriage by working together to build a loving home. In 2019, Amell walked away from the "Arrow" series to focus on his family life.
Everything appeared fine for the perfect couple, and nobody had a cause to doubt their love until last year when numerous outlets alleged that the actor was "forcibly removed" from a Delta flight that transported him and his wife.

Jean refused to comment on the situation, but her husband took to the internet to clarify the news. In his words:
"My wife and I got into an argument Monday afternoon on a Delta flight from Austin to LA. I was asked to lower my voice and I did. Approximately 10 minutes later I was asked to leave the flight. And I did so immediately. I was not forcibly removed."
The pair had been working on a short film and were on their way to promote it when the incident happened. Amell later booked another flight. So far, there has been no controversial news about the couple.

WHO IS CASANDRA JEAN?
Jean is the woman after the "Arrow" star's heart. But she is more than a wife and mother. She is also an accomplished actress with acting experience of over ten years.
She is also a former model who competed in 2005's "America's Next Top Model." Jean left the pageant because the judges asked her to trim her hair lower after she had bleached it and cut it.
Indeed, Jean has a mind of her own and chooses not to be intimidated or conform to people's expectations. The actress has talked about her preference for high fives instead of hugs. In 2018, she implemented a fundraising project with a design that read "High-Fives Only."

This never upset him, as the actor mentioned that it is indeed the "best" experience. Also, many fans have admired the sweet display of affection between father and daughter that comes with the reveal.
