You’ll NEVER guess who actually named Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo’s newborn daughter Dusty Rose! In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the singer got super real about why he and his wife chose the unique name — and who was actually behind coming up with it! Watch his hilarious confession here and check out Ellen’s priceless reaction!
Choosing a name for his and his wife, Behati Prinsloo‘s, 27, baby girl was no easy task. But lucky for Adam Levine, 37, he had MAJOR help from Ellen DeGeneres, 58! And he gave her huge props during the Nov. 3 episode of her talkshow, revealing that it was actually the comedian who came up with baby Dusty Rose‘s super unique name. Who would’ve thought!
“She has a great name,” Ellen prodded with a smile when telling the audience about how adorable little Dusty is. “Shall I do the honors of telling them?” Adam responded. “We had a name that we won’t mention on television…the name game is a tough game. It’s a very hard, arduous…it’s like, imagine you’re writing the best song you’ve ever written in your life and you have to name it, it’s really screwed up to have to put yourself through that.”
Clearly the whole name thing had Adam a bit stressed. But thankfully Ellen swooped in and came to his rescue! “So I’m going through it, and I think I have a great name, so I texted Ellen, like, ‘What do you think of this name?’ And she’s like ‘I hate it. I think it’s a terrible name.’ I was like, ‘Cool, okay…’ She gave me like five names to think about. This, this, this, this…and Dusty was in there. You basically named my kid.”
Pretty sweet, right? But next Adam had to convince Behati that Dusty was the right choice. “I ran it by my wife and she’s like, ‘Eh, no, I don’t like it.’ And 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!'”
Ellen added that rose is “a beautiful color as well…I’d already thought of Dusty, and then somebody said ‘Dusty Rose,’ and I said, ‘Oh, that’s her name.’ And so I texted you, ‘Dusty Rose.'” “If anyone needs to name their child,” the Voice mentor said, “Ellen’s really good at it.” So sweet!
Little Dusty was born on Sept. 21 and her parents are already totally in love with her — and so is Ellen! “He sends me pictures of her. She is adorable,” Ellen revealed on her show. “If a day goes by, I’m like, ‘Where is the baby? I’m jonesing for a baby picture.'” Aw!
