Tom Brokaw welcomed a grandson on Monday, a spokesperson for NBC confirms to PEOPLE.

The NBC News Special Correspondent’s daughter, Sarah Brokaw – a licensed therapist specializing in relational dynamics and a New York Times best selling author – gave birth to Archer Thomas Merritt Brokaw.

Sarah’s book, Fortytude: Making the Next Decades the Best Years of Your Life – through the 40s, 50s and Beyond, explores the core values of aging.

Archer is the first grandson born to the news anchor, 73, who has six granddaughters.
