Celebrity Baby Name Alert: American Idol's Michael Lynche Welcomes Son Kingston
Season nine American Idol alum Michael Lynche and his wife Christa welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday. Kingston Michael is the newest addition to the happy family and joins big sister Laila Rose, who was born in January, 2010.
The name Kingston made a splash in 2005 when Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale named their first child Kingston James, after Bob Marley's frequent home in the capital of Jamaica. The next year it broke the top-1000 most popular names and then skyrocketed to No. 214 in 2010, becoming one of the fastest rising names of the decade.
It seems the Lynches are fond of popular name choices for their children. Laila, who was born while Lynche was competing on American Idol, also has a newly popular name. After climbing the charts over the past decade, Laila was ranked No. 138 in 2010. Like Kingston, Laila is also the name of a celebrity baby, though one a bit older than Kingston Rossdale. Laila Ali, who just had her first baby in April, is the daughter of boxer Muhammed Ali.
What do you think of Kingston and Laila as a sibset? What celebrity baby names would you choose for your baby?
