The ‘Teen Mom 2’ star took her Eminem fandom to a whole new level: she named her son after her favorite rapper!
Kailyn Lowry and her husband Javi Marroquin welcomed their first son together on Nov. 16 — and named their little of bundle joy Lincoln Marshall! The unique name was inspired by Mr. Marshall Mathers, Eminem himself! Kail and Javi are mega fans of Eminem’s songs — but they also share an emotional connection to his work.

Kailyn Lowry & Javi Marroquin Love Eminem Songs
Kailyn has a really powerful relationship to Eminem’s songs, and she tweets out recommendations of his songs frequently. In fact, right before she gave birth to little Lincoln, she tweeted out a list of his chart-topping songs for her fans to groove to! (Most epic birthing playlist ever?)
On a more serious note, Kail has previously revealed an emotional link to Em’s lyrics. She tweeted:
Eminem’s song Headlights is literally the exact same relationship that I have with my mom.

Javi then tweeted after he and Kail were listening to the song together:
Headlights by eminem. If you haven’t listened to it. You need to go listen… Right now.

Not only do the pair share the same taste in music, they have officially permanently honored Slim Shady with their baby’s name!
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Are you surprised that Kailyn named her son after Eminem?
