The Lachey family just welcomed its newest addition! What do you think of the unusual—yet totally appropriate—name they chose?
Brooklyn. Camden. Phoenix. What do those three proper nouns have in common? Well, for one thing, they're all names of American destinations—but they also happen to be the names of Vanessa and Nick Lachey's children.
The Lachey family got an extra special gift this Christmas: The family's newest member, a boy named Phoenix Robert Lachey, was born on Christmas Eve.
Vanessa shared a sweet shot of the newborn's tiny hand on her Instagram page: “It's a very Merry Christmas indeed! We had our Christmas Miracle. Phoenix Robert Lachey decided to show up early and was born on Christmas Eve,” she captioned the sweet snap. “Mommy, Daddy, Camden & Brooklyn LOVE You very much! #LacheyPartyOf5," the mother of three wrote alongside the photo.
Nick and Vanessa announced their third pregnancy in adorable fashion a few months ago—they followed that up with a clever little gender reveal (that included a musical feature from 98 Degrees, natch!) Back when we shared a video from the gender reveal with you, we speculated that the couple would select a geographically-inspired name for their third child as well—and it turns out we were on to something! What do you think of the Lachey family's decision to name their third child Phoenix? We think it's pretty perfect—a name that's unusual, yet not too out there (at least by celebrity standards!) and fits in so well with the theme the family has established.
This set of parents isn't the only famous pair that's into this trend—celebrities are looking to places to inspire their baby names more and more these days, with monikers like Bronx and Tennessee stepping into the spotlight.
