Gellar's Baby Name Revealed! Is He Named After Classic Boxer?
Sarah Michelle Gellar's choice of baby name for her second child has finally been revealed, some two months after she and husband Freddie Prinze Jr welcomed the baby boy. Since the birth, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum, 35, has managed to keep the name under wraps - until now.
After rumors began flying around the internet, Gellar's representative was forced to confirm to US Weekly that Rocky James is the name of their first little boy. Married for ten years, Gellar and Prinze Jr are already parents to 3-year-old Charlotte Grace, though it looks as though they've got a real fighter on their hands this time. Of course, Rocky is also the name of two of history's most famous fighters, Rocky Marciano and the fictional Rocky Balboa, played by Sylvester Stallone in six movies. The name is actually of English origins, and in its most literal sense means "stony" or "craggy", however, it's also used as a nickname for the Italian "Rocco" (the 14th-century saint). It's perhaps easier to locate to reasoning behind Rocky's middle name James, with father Freddy sharing the name middle moniker.
With no projects on the horizon, it seems as though Gellar is enjoying motherhood for the time being. Freddie recently voiced a character for the animation Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, though his schedule looks pretty empty too. With Rocky about, they're probably going to need all the spare time they have.
