The recent cover stars of our sister publication, Fit Pregnancy and Baby, are proud new parents! Get all the details about the baby name they chose.
Dancing With the Stars pro (and recent Fit Pregnancy and Baby cover girl) Allison Holker welcomed a baby boy on Easter Sunday with her husband, So You Think You Can Dance star Stephen "tWitch" Boss. This is the couple's second child, and just like for their daughter, Weslie, they picked a unique baby name: Maddox Laurel.
Maddox is a Welsh name that means "son of Madoc," and it has major celebrity cache. Maddox was relatively unknown until Angelina Jolie picked it for her oldest son back in 2003. After that, it jumped into the top 1000, and it's been in the top 170 baby names for the past several years. It's a wonderful way to get that cool x ending that's so in vogue.
Laurel is a unique pick for a boy's middle name, as it's used most commonly for girls. It's a nature name for a lovely tree whose branches were often used in Roman times as wreaths given to honor those who were victorious, and also became a symbol of peace. (Think about the phrase, "resting on your laurels.")
In all, it's a lovely name with a little poetry to it—perfect for the son of two dancers.
