It's a... Jackson!
Stars often go out of their way to name their newborns something completely original (rapper M.I.A. recently opted for Ikhyd!), but first-time fathers Carson Daly and Scott Wolf decided to go more traditional -- and ended up naming both their sons, who were born one week apart, Jackson!
The Last Call with Carson Daly host, 35, and girlfriend Siri Pinter welcomed their baby boy on March 15, one week before Wolf's wife Kelley gave birth on March 22.
Jackson, a name which originated in 14th century England as a patronymic meaning, simply, "son of Jack," is a common choice. It rose in popularity in the early '80s, and in 2007, it was ranked the 33rd most popular boy's name, as reported by the Social Security Administration.
Both dads are happy with their respective Jacksons.
"Kelley and I are having the time of our lives, Wolf said in a statement to Usmagazine.com. "Words can't describe the love we have for our son Jackson. He is the most fun person we have ever met, and we feel so lucky he has joined our family."
