After giving birth to her first child back in July, The Hills alum Whitney Port has shared the story behind her baby's name -- and she's giving all the credit to her husband, television producer Tim Rosenman. 


"I have to give all the credit to Timmy," she said to People. It turns out the inspiration for their son's name, Sonny, came from one of their favorite songs.

Port told People:

"He heard it in a Paul Simon song called 'Obvious Child.' There's a lyric in it about a little boy named Sonny.

We just have always loved that song. So he was in the car and heard it and came home and told me about it, and I was like, 'Oh my God.'"

The fashion designer and author also likes that her son's name is unique. "I heard Sunny for a girl, but I don't really know any little boys named Sonny with an 'O,'" she said. "So it was just the cutest little name, and now he's such a Sonny."

In the interview, Port also mentioned the possibility of more kids. But don't get your hopes up just yet -- the couple plans on enjoying Sonny as an only child for the time being. 

"We'd love Sonny to have a brother or a sister. We want to continue to grow our family, but definitely not anytime soon."
