Do you remember Ingo? He is an Australian actor who has been in General Hospital for a few years now. I think maybe once he was in Baywatch. Care factor about Ingo would be low EXCEPT that you need to know he and his girlfriend Ehiku just had a baby.
AND THEY NAMED IT: PEANUT JAI RADEMACHER
This is a huge bummer because Peanut Jai was my first choice if I had a boy. Or a girl. Or a sandwich filling.
Celeb Baby Blog says:
General Hospital‘s Ingo Rademacher, 37, is a new dad after his fiancée Ehiku gave birth to son Peanut Kai Rademacher
on Friday, July 11th. The couple’s first child weighed 7 lbs, 6 oz.
and was 20 ½ inches long. A spokesperson for the show stated that
"dad, mom and baby are all great."
Ingo himself told People magazine: "We were calling him that when he was in mommy," Rademacher told PEOPLE about the unusual name. "It kind of represented joy and happiness to us. It puts a smile on everyone’s face."
I look forward to the day when Peanut decides he want to become a bank manager. Or a politician. Or anything other THAN A BABY. The whole wacky celeb baby names situation requires a longer post so I’ve done one for this weekend’s Sun-Herald and Sunday Age columns. Will post here late Sunday.
