Kate Hudson named her baby Bingham Hawn Bellamy. How did the star come up with the original moniker?

Kate HudsonKate Hudson gave birth to her second son last weekend, and the new mama chose an interesting baby name for her new bundle of joy. How did she come up with it?

As a refresher, Kate Hudson named her baby Bingham Hawn Bellamy. It’s no Bronx Mowgli, Kal-El or Pilot Inspektor but it sure isn’t what you usually hear when you drop little Jacob and Emma off at daycare, either.

So how did she come up with it? Baby daddy Matthew Bellamy explains:

“For those wondering, Bingham is my mum’s maiden name and Bing Russell was Kurt’s dad. Family connections all round!” Bellamy wrote on Twitter.

Kurt is Kurt Russell, Kate’s stepfather who raised her. Her older son Ryder has the middle name Russell in his honor. Bingham’s middle name Hawn is a nod to Kate’s mother Goldie Hawn.

Now that this Kate Hudson baby name mystery has been explained, the only thing left is to show us the baby pics!
