'Glee' Star Naya Rivera Gives Her Baby a Gender-Neutral Name & We Love It

Naya Rivera baby name

Well folks, it looks like the cat's out the bag. Glee star Naya Rivera is now a mommy to a baby boy. The new mom and her husband, Ryan Dorsey, reportedly welcomed their bundle of joy on September 17 in Los Angeles, and gave him quite the adorable name.

Now before you start guessing, just know Baby Dorsey was not named after a piece of fruit or some country. While there's nothing wrong with "unique" names (um, have you seen mine?), Naya and Ryan didn't seem to go that route.

So, what pray tell is his name? World, say hello to Josey Hollis Dorsey.

Go ahead and do your happy dance, Naya. All that labor and delivery stuff is ova -- though we hear things were easy for you in the pregnancy department. If that's not reason to bust a move, I don't know what is.

I don't know about you but I like the name Josey. From the looks of things, Josey appears to be pretty gender-neutral -- even though it might look like a girl's name off the bat. Whether it's short for Joseph, or a switch-up on Josie (or Josephine), it seems cool.

Naya and Ben, you should soak in all of these precious moments -- they go by fast!

Congrats again you two! Feel free to show us a picture (just sayin').

Sounds too much like a girl's name, and sounds goofy with the last name. Hopefully they go with the middle name as his name.
