Adam Levine has revealed that he and wife Behati Prinsloo have Ellen DeGeneres to thank for giving their baby girl her beautiful name- Dusty Rose!
Levine says he originally had another name in mind which he texted to good friend DeGeneres to get her opinion. She hated it and gave him another option.
“So, I’m like, going through it, and I think I have a great name, and I texted Ellen and was like, ‘What do you think?’ And she’s like, ‘I hate it. I think it’s a terrible name.’ I was like, ‘Coolll …” Levine says.
Amongst DeGeneres’ other suggestions was the name Dusty Rose.
“You basically named my kid,” Levine says to the 58-year-old host. “Because I ran it by my wife and she was like, ‘Ehhh, I don’t like it.’ And then I brought it back to her in the 11th hour and I’m like, ‘Dusty’s pretty cool,’ and she’s like, “I love it!'”
Although Dusty may be a common name, Levine didn’t realise Dusty Rose was an actual colour.
“That’s how I thought of it,” DeGeneres said. “Because I had already thought of Dusty, and then someone said Dusty Rose, and I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s her name.’ And so I texted you, ‘Dusty Rose.'”
Hmmm…perhaps this means Ellen DeGeneres is the unofficial godmother?!
