Ciara Shares the Sweet Backstory Behind Her Baby Son's Name: "I Give Credit to Dad"
Ciara and Russell Wilson's baby boy is finally here, and his name is a win! Actually, his name is actually Win. The newborn, who is the second child the couple share and Ciara's third, was born on July 23. Both Ciara and Russell shared the birth of their little one on Instagram, Ciara writing in the caption of her video announcement: "Happy Birthday WIN!!! Mommy & Daddy Love You! Win Harrison Wilson 7.23.2020 8lbs 1 oz." Russell shared the same caption on his own account alongside a photo of the proud parents and baby Win.
The name Win is certainly a unique one — so much so that it doesn't appear in the Social Security Administration's top 1,000 popular names at any point since 1900. However, his middle name, Harrison — which is of English origin and means "son of Harry" — was the 115th most popular boys' name in 2018.
Ciara shared in an interview with ET that the idea for their son's name came from Russell. "That is Daddy. I give credit to Dad. Oh my gosh, I'm gonna get emotional," she said, adding that her husband would act out scenes using the name, as it was always on his baby name list. Win shares his middle name with his late grandfather, Russell's dad, Harrison Wilson, III. "There was a lot of love and thought put into it," Ciara said.
We can't wait to see more of baby Win soon, especially with his older siblings Future and Sienna. Congrats to the new family of five!
