Imogen Thomas came up with the middle name for her and partner Adam Horsley's newborn daughter Ariana Siena by Googling monikers just before she was taken down to theatre to have a C-section
Imogen Thomas came up with her daughter's middle name by Googling monikers just before giving birth.
The 30-year-old beauty and her partner Adam Horsley welcomed daughter Ariana Siena into the world earlier this month, and while they had already chosen their little one's first name, the couple didn't have a second name for her until Imogen looked up "Italian names" on her mobile as she was waiting to have a C-section.
She said: "When I first got pregnant, I came across the name Ariana and it was always going to be that if it was a girl. It's an Italian name and my mum's dad is Italian. We'd planned a boy's name too, but when I was waiting to go down to theatre, I said to Adam, 'We need a middle name if it's a girl.'
"I Googled Italian names on my iPhone, and Siena came up and I said, 'That's it! Ariana Siena.' And Adam said, 'I really like it.' "
Imogen "screamed and cried" when she was told her baby was a girl and she was surprised her pregnancy was over so quickly.
She added to new! magazine: "Adam was standing next to me, holding my hand. I was crying the whole time. I said to them, 'Don't tell me if it's a girl or a boy, just hand the baby over.
"Within five minutes, they were like, 'Are you ready to meet your baby?' I was like, 'What?!' I thought I was going to be there for ages. I heard a little cry and she sounded like a little mouse. It was so cute.
"Then they handed her over and I was like, 'Oh my God, it's a girl!' I just screamed and cried. Everyone kept saying I would have a boy because of the way I carried, and I'd started to believe it."
