Uchitel (Frazer Harrison/Getty Images for Relativity Media)The trend of giving baby girls "boy names" continues with the news that Rachel Uchitel became a first-time mom yesterday and named her daughter Wyatt Lilly. The baby, whose dad is Uchitel's businessman-husband Matt Hahn, was born in San Francisco on Tuesday evening and weighed in at 7lbs, 1 oz.
Uchitel became a fixture in the gossip world when the Tiger Woods cheating scandal broke in November 2009. Then a nightclub promoter, she was one of the many women linked to the golfing great. She also reportedly had an affair with "Bones" star David Boreanaz.
In a subsequent stint on "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew," Uchitel was treated for what was described as a "love addiction" as well as misusing Ambien and other prescription medications. Show host and addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky said Uchitel's condition was partly triggered by traumatic events in her past, including the death of her fiancé Andy O'Grady who died in the Sept. 11 attacks.
Uchitel married Hahn last October at the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. Soon after they shared their baby news on Twitter. The new mom has used the social media site to share updates throughout her pregnancy. Just last Saturday she wrote, "Today is my due date. Spent it swimming laps, taking dogs to the beach and catching up with friends. Now what?!"
Well, now she has a bouncing baby girl. Helm shared their baby name selection on his Facebook page. Wyatt, which is of Old English origin, means "war strength" and is largely viewed as a male name. (In 2011, it was No. 48 on the Social Security Administration's Popular Baby Names list for boys.)
Parents giving their daughters "boy names" is a hot trend right now. Earlier this month Jessica Simpson named her daughter Maxwell, then there's Johnny Knoxville who has Arlo, and Jason Lee with Casper, to name a few. New mom Marla Sokoloff is also in on the trend but she modified the traditional male name Elliott to Elliotte for her little girl.
What do you think of the name Wyatt for a girl? Let us know if you're a fan.
