Just when we thought we had about as much in common with celebrity power couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend as chia seeds have with Big Macs, it turns out they have the same family quarrels we do.
After revealing earlier this month that they had adopted an adorable bulldog puppy as a playmate for 18-month-old daughter, Luna, the pair have hit a thoroughly relatable roadblock faced by many a parent or pet owner before them. They can’t agree on a name.
In an Instagram post over the weekend, Chrissy explained that she likes the name Paul, while husband, John, prefers Pablo.
Chrissy is anti-Pablo because she and Luna can’t pronounce it (we’ll give the baby the benefit of the doubt, but Chrissy, really?) but John refuses to accept the pup is a Paul, and so on, and so on.
For the love of tear-inducing piano ballads, please God, don’t let this tear America’s most beautiful family apart.
Followers quickly weighed in on the couple’s dilemma, including Kim Kardashian, who was, unsurprisingly, pro-Pablo.
Some floated the idea of a hybrid name like ‘Paulo’. Or ‘Paublo’. Then there was the bloke who suggested ‘Bob’, because, ‘Straya.
So what do you do when your household reaches an impasse in the naming process? When each person has finally settled on their one perfect name, but they just don’t match?
