When "The Hills" star Kristin Cavallari and her NFL player fiancé Jay Cutler named their son Camden, they probably thought their baby name choice was somewhat unique. So Kristin must have been rather shocked to learn that her ex Nick Lachey chose the same name for his son with wife Vanessa.
At least she couldn't help but tweet about Nick purloining her name pick. According to Us Weekly, here's what she wrote when she learned about the arrival of Nick and Vanessa's new son: "Apparently Camden is a popular name!"
She then quickly made sure to let her followers know that she wasn't trying to attack Nick and Vanessa by writing, "By the way that wasn't a bitchy tweet at all. I obviously love the name and I'm glad other people do too."
If she does secretly feel like Nick stole her baby name, she's not alone. Here's a look at some other celebs whose baby monikers have been mimicked or snatched away before their child's birth:
According to The National Enquirer, Kourtney was upset that Nick Lachey's other ex Jessica Simpson "stole" her idea of using the name Maxwell for a little girl. So instead she picked the name Penelope, which the tot now shares with the daughters of Tina Fey and Taylor Hanson. But she shouldn't really blame Jess for stealing the name since she wasn't the first star to think of naming a daughter Maxwell - about three months before Jess gave birth, "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" actress Lindsay Sloane bestowed her baby girl with the moniker.
Last year Eva said that she hadn't felt "the urge" to become a mother just yet, but that didn't stop her from coming up with the perfect baby name. According to People, here's what she said about fellow lovely Latina Salma Hayek stealing her top choice way back in 2008: "[She] took my baby name, though. Valentina Paloma. I was like, 'Salma, you took my baby name.' And she's all, 'What are your other ones so that I don't take them." Now Eva allegedly wants kids with boyfriend Ryan Gosling, so hopefully she's sent Salma a list of her new favorite names.
This funnyman thought he was being clever by giving one of his adorable twins the name Harper, but Victoria Beckham just had to decide to "borrow" it for her baby girl. According to Hollywood Life, here's what NPH told Jay Leno about his tot's pilfered moniker: "The Beckhams named their daughter Harper Seven. (Mine's) Harper One. Isn't that exciting? Once the Beckhams have a kid with your name then it's really cool all of a sudden. Now we just have to have the Pitt-Jolies name their next kid Gideon and we're in!"
So do you think that Nick and Vanessa Lachey copied Kristin by choosing the name Camden? Or is it just a crazy coincidence that the couple also came up with it?
