Sterling K. Brown on The Ellen DeGeneres Show May 2018

The Touching Reason Why Sterling K. Brown Changed His Name at the Age of 16

Sterling K. Brown is the gift that keeps on giving. The Hotel Artemis actor surprised fans on The Ellen DeGeneres Show recently and explained the meaning behind the K in his name — turns out his mother randomly found it in a name book. The 42-year-old This Is Us star also shared that he went by his middle name for the first 16 years of his life until he changed his name to Sterling to honor his late dad. I'm not crying. Watch the video above to find out what the K stands for (no, it's not Kenneth or Kevin), then swoon over his cutest family photos.
