In the wake of rapper M.I.A. naming her child Ickitt and then sending out reports she did no such thing, perhaps other celebrities are rethinking the <a href=”Read the Baby Lifestyles feature about odd celebrity baby name choices.“oddity of their children’s names as well. Others, like Meg Ryan, name their child and as they develop their own personality (Ryan originally named her adopted daughter Charlotte, then renamed her Daisy when she was two.), find that their child’s name does not suit their personality. No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani knows what’s that like. In an interview with 104.7 KISS FM, she revealed that her sons — 2 ½-year-old Kingston James McGregor and 6-month-old Zuma Nesta Rock — had “the wrong names given to them,” she explains that a swap may be appropriate.
“[Kingston] is in that terrible twos. Gavin [Rossdale] calls him Sid Vicious. He’s like, ‘You gave birth to Sid Vicious.’ I’m like, ‘Oops!’ He’s definitely got an attitude and Zuma is the opposite. He’s like this cool, laid back, easy-going guy — is that always how it is?”
While Zuma — or ‘Baby Zooms’ as his big brother calls him — is perfectly content to sit back and relax, Kingston seems to be taking after his musician parents, turning into quite the rock star himself! Along with his passion for “[Top 40] hits like his mom,” Kingston enjoys keeping up to speed with the tunes. “Any song that comes on, he’ll get pissed if you turn the station. He’ll be like, ‘That’s my song! That’s my song!’” A true lover of music, the toddler already has his eye on one icon: Britney Spears. With the popstar living right down the street from the family, Kingston has been known to stop over at her house for a quick hello.
“He’s really into Britney’s songs. He’s really into her! He thinks she’s really great and cute and he flirts with her and stuff.”
Clearly smitten with their two boys, Gwen shares that she and Gavin are often left in amazement by their beautiful family. “It’s really mind-blowing to be together all these years and then all of a sudden these little creatures come. You’re like, ‘Who are these guys? Where did they come from? And they’re around the whole time,” she laughs. However, despite being “really tired,” the proud mama reveals the couple are about to embark on a new adventure: a No Doubt tour. Scheduled to bring her family out on the road, the group is in for a wild time! “All the No Doubt guys [except Tony] all have kids as well,” she explains. “We basically have to have a playroom on tour! It’s going to be really really fun having them all with us.”
