Locash’s Preston Brust and his wife Kristen welcomed their second child on, and the couple chose an unusual name for their bundle of joy, who surprised his parents arriving earlier than expected.
The vocalist of the country music duo Locash learned that his wife had gone into labor before the estimated date as the band was about to give a show in Marysville, Ohio, and had to leave in a rush to be with her, as Country Rebel reported.
Needless to say, Locash’s presentation at the All Ohio Balloon Festival had to be canceled, with the festival only citing an “unforeseen circumstance” as the reason for this, leaving fans worried about the refund of the tickets to the concert.
The day after the show was supposed to take place, an apology was released via Locash’s Twitter account, mentioning the birth of Preston and Kristen’s baby, and explaining that the refund of tickets was not up to them.
“Shows will go on as usual tonight and so on. But wow, if no one understands the birth of a baby, oh well,” read the Tweet, posted on August 11.
Preston and Kristen got married in September 2015 and are also parents of 2-year-old Love Lily, born in January 2016. In 2017 they tried to give Love Lily a sibling, but Kristen sadly had a miscarriage.
“Hello. My name is Legend Wilde ‘…and just like that our hearts have opened up in all new ways. We’re so blessed’,” read the caption of the image, on which each parent holds one of the baby’s hands.“So in love with that name, congrats,” wrote user “tiffinicole.” “Congratulations on your new bundle of love and joy. Great name you chose”, added “chambersdolores.”
Legend Wilde joins the many other children of celebrity parents who were given unconventional names, a trend that has been on the rise in the last years, with names such as Gravity, Pilot Inspektor or Fuschia.
While it appears to be a rather modern phenomenon, rock legend Frank Zappa, whose children were born between the late 60’s and the mid 70’s, gave them the names of Moon Unit, Dweezil, and Diva Thin Muffin.
