'Bachelorette' Star Melissa Rycroft Gives Baby Boy a Name With a Unique Spin

The Bachelor family is growing! First Deanna Pappas Stagliano gave birth to a daughter earlier this year, then Ashley Hebert announced that she's expecting a little babe with her husband, J.P. Rosenbaum, last month. And now, Melissa Rycroft 'hatched' on Easter Sunday and delivered baby #2 with her husband, Tye Strickland!


Baby boy Beckett Thomas arrived on April 20 weighing 7 pounds, 7 ounces and measuring 19.2 inches. The little guy was a few days late on his arrival and his impatient momma expressed her eagerness on Twitter earlier this week:

What an adorable name, too. The last name as first name trend is quickly gaining ground in Hollywood. Think of Lincoln (Kristin Bell and Dax Shepard's daughter and Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin's son), Kingston (Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's son), and Flynn (Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom's son). They're definitely strong surnames, but they're even cuter as first names.

They're both classic and totally unique when flipped to the front. Sure, they might be fairly common names in general, but when used as first names, they take on a completely different spin.

What do you think of the name Beckett?
