New Baby Alert: Liberty Grace Lawrence
Whoa, baby! Liberty Grace Lawrence has arrived. The new baby, born March 4 is the second daughter for Joey Lawrence of Blossom and Dancing With the Stars fame and his wife Chandi Yawn-Nelson.
The baby's name is no surprise. Back in November we wrote about the name Liberty Grace when the parents-to-be announced the name for their yet-to-be-born baby. Back then we wrote:
"Liberty has had a huge upswing in popularity in the last few decades. Not in the top 1000 names in the 1990s, Liberty reached spot 502 by 2003. As Baby Name Wizard comments, Liberty "surfaces at historical moments when Americans contemplate their freedoms," such as after the 9/11 attacks. Currently the name is at spot 620, at a time when America is engaged in two wars overseas and home front domestic battles."
In an interview in PEOPLE , Joey explained the name choice: Liberty “is something I’ve always loved,” he said, while Grace is in honor of his grandmother, who passed away in 2009.
Baby Liberty is younger sister to Charleston Lawrence, Joey and Chandi's 3-year-old daughter.
How do you like the name Liberty? Is it a good sibling match for Charleston?
