It's a boy! A boy -- with a very long and hard to pronounce name! Hurray!
Antonio Sabato Jr. and lady love Cheryl Moana Marie had a son over the weekend. Oh and guess what his name is? Just guess! Give up?! ('cause trust me you aren't gonna get it) Well, the little bundle of love's name is … Antonio Kamakanaalohamaikalani Harvey Sabato III.
No, boys and girls I didn't fall asleep on my keyboard -- that's really part of his name -- "Kamakanaalohamaikalani" – 22 letters full of fun. Try getting through kindergarten spelling that one, lil' guy. Check that -- try writing that on every piece of paperwork you have to sign … for the REST OF YOUR LIFE!
Oh celebs and their love of eccentric and complicated baby names! And I thought Megan Alexandra Swertlow was rough.
My question is -- at what point did this name seem like a good idea? I realize I'm asking this question of a man who was the star of his own VH1 dating show and whose next film is a movie called 'Balls to the Wall,' in which the premise is about an engaged guy who is forced by his future father-in-law to take a side job moonlighting as an exotic dancer in order to pay for his extravagant wedding that neither of them can afford -- clearly an instant film classic starring a cinematic legend.
Okay back to the subject at hand -- baby names. The bouncing boy's first middle name, Kamakanaalohamaikalani, is Hawaiian and means "a beloved gift from the heavens."
So umm if this namesake is a "gift" and stuff -- does that mean Antonio Kamakanaalohamaikalani Harvey Sabato III can take it back for something better or get store credit when he is older? Or can the kid can at least regift it to a friend? Ya know, like I did with all those lavender-scented candles and the aqua-colored GUESS handbag, embellished with rhinestones and feathers that my mom got for my birthday?
These are questions I want answers for, Antonio Sabato Jr.!
I guess at the end of the day let's all just be thankful that his son isn't named Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee's son) or Audio Science Clayton (Shannyn Sossamon's son). Can't famous people name their kids normal names -- ya know like Suri, Sparrow James Midnight or Bronx Mowgli?
