After welcoming his youngest daughter, Lennon Love, in February of this year, the superstar is finally sharing the story behind her unique name.

After his wife Lauren took the lead on naming their first two children, Willa Gray and Ada James, Thomas had full control over naming their third child. And yes, she’s named after a Beatle, in case you were wondering.

“Lennon came from John Lennon, from the Beatles. I knew I wanted some sort of musical name for our third child, and me and Lauren both loved the name Lennon,” the “Be A Light” singer recently explained.

He went on to share that her middle name actually changed at the last minute when a friend suggested something different than they had originally planned.

“And Love – her middle name was gonna actually be Louise, but in the hospital one of her friends text her,” he revealed. “She was like, ‘Hey, since it’s Valentine’s Day, maybe you should name her Lennon Love.  And it kind of started as a joke but kinda became cemented. That’s what we kind of decided in the hospital.”

Thomas Rhett has enjoyed plenty of extra time with Lennon Love, Ada James and Willa Gray as he’s been off the road since March due to the coronavirus outbreak. His Center Point Road Tour, which was originally scheduled to take place this summer, has now shifted to a June 2021 start date.
