Rooney's Baby Girl Named After Welch

RASCAL FLATTS guitarist JOE DON ROONEY has named his baby daughter after Hollywood sex siren RAQUEL WELCH.
The star's model wife Tiffany Fallon gave birth to little Raquel Blue Rooney in September (10) but Rooney admits it took a little while for them to settle on the tot's name.
He tells People magazine, "We had so many names picked out. It's harder to choose a girl's name because there are so many that are beautiful - it's hard to narrow it down."
But the new mum-of-two just had to look to the actress for inspiration.
She says, "I have always like Raquel Welch. I always liked her and her name. It's unusual - you don't hear about many Raquels.
"I wanted an 'R' to go with Rooney. So I threw it out there one day and Joe Don was crazy about it."
The couple wed in 2006 and are also parents to two-year-old son Jagger.
