Did Kelly Clarkson just name her brand new baby after a piece of defunct office equipment?!
Hold up: First of all, congrats to the singer on the birth of her son! Clarkson announced the news on Twitter today, adding that the bouncing baby boy was born healthy on Tuesday. If you’re not playing along, this is Clarkson’s second child with her hubs Brendan Blackstock.
Now back to the name. In that same tweet, Clarkson announced he was named ‘Remington Alexander’, and no, you’re not alone if you immediately thought ‘typewriter’ (also possibly: ‘rifle’) when you heard that unusual first name.
There was no explanation about the name choice given, but we must admit: It does have a certain old school, hipster gravitas to it.
