Ginnifer Goodwin


Ginnifer Goodwin gives her new baby boy a surprisingly normal name!

New parents Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas have opted for a perfectly ordinary name for their new baby.

Most of the time, when we hear a celebrity has just given birth, we have to brace ourselves for – let's face it – a ridiculous name.

But new mum Ginnifer Goodwin and her partner Josh Dallas have settled on a pretty normal moniker for their brand new baby boy, opting for Oliver Finlay Dallas over anything outlandish.

The pair welcomed their first child into the world on May 29th, just two months after getting married in April, and released his name today. Ginnifer, who met Josh on the set of Once Upon A Time, was treated during her labour by the same doctor who delivered Kim Kardashian's daughter North last summer – and who helped her sister Kourtney Kardashian with both of her previous pregnancies at LA's top hospital Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Previously, 35-year-old Ginnifer had explained the difficulties they were having in coming up with a name for their little one.

"Naming a child with the last name of Dallas is a little more complicated," she said. "[We won't have] a first name that begins with a D because it gets porn-y. And nothing geographical because it sounds like an airport.[Josh] was like, 'Boy or girl, Austin Dallas'. I was like, 'That is an actual place where planes land. We can't do that.'"

It's a fair point well made, Gin.
