Hilaria Baldwin’s latest confession will make every indecisive parent say “same.”
In a recent interview with People, the mom of four discussed the meaning of her new son’s name, Romeo Alejandro David, and revealed that she and her husband, Alec, originally picked out a different name.
“He didn’t have a name for two days,” she said. “His name that we were pretty set on the entire time was Diego, which I still really love. I told my kids, ‘Diego is gonna come,’ and they were all waiting for him.”
But that all changed when Hilaria neared her May due date. “I don’t know why I just started getting this sense really close to when I was gonna give birth that that was not his name,” she added.
The 34-year-old went on to discuss how they settled on Romeo’s moniker, saying, “We tried on a bunch of different names [for Romeo]. The first two days when [I was] still in the hospital, I kept trying to call him different names and see how [they] fit… The first place Alec took me was Rome. We’re big Rome fans.”
Of course, the couple’s other children—Carmen Gabriela (5), Rafael Thomas (3) and Leonardo Ángel Charles (almost 2)—haven’t forgotten about the last-minute switch-up.
She continued, “But for the past three months, Rafa [will] just look at me, sweet innocence. And he’s just like, ‘¿Dónde está Diego? Where is Diego? Mommy, you were telling me for nine months that this person named Diego is gonna come, and Diego never came and you brought somebody named Romeo, but nobody named Diego came, so when is Diego gonna come?’”
Pleased to meet you, Diego—er, we mean—Romeo.
