I just can't believe they named their child John Ira Shepherd Hanson. I joked to my friend that someone needs to buy them a better baby name book. However, I think it's great they've reached the point in their relationship they're ready for a child.

I think their whole family needs a better baby name book. Most all of their kids have some strange names. And yes, at least they did wait until they were ready in their relastionship and marriage, unlike both his brothers whose wives were expecting when they got married, although Isaac and Nikki were already engaged anyway it just caused them move the wedding date earlier.

Book - A book has name's,places as well as other information in it.
Maybe the name's are family names.For example maybe Kate's deceased grandfather's name was John and his Ira.I don't know that that was their grandfather's names or even that they are deceased.And Shepherd sounds like a surname,perhaps one of their mother's maiden names.That way the names covers a lot of people that is loved and want to be remembered.The point is thou that it is the love for the people close to their hearts and that is better then just a name picked from a baby book.Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with the names in the book.Heck,the names John and Ira are in there. Matter of fact I named my daughter,with her first name from a character in my favorite show at the time.Her first middle name was a name that I like that was supposed to be my middle name and is also my great grandmother's middle name.Her second middle name was my grandmother's maiden name.That name is also my sister's middle name and lots of other family member's middle name.Therefore my daughter carry's on name's of a lot of family.

From what I've heard I think in her family that Ira is a family name. I think that was her grandfathers name. The other names I'm not sure where they came up with them. I think my thing with the name is sticking the kid with that many names. I mean just think when he gets older and has to fill out something where you have to put your full name. He'll need a line a mile long to write it.

Fine. I can't really access the link being as your ling is in my new window as opposed the my myLot window but I really don't care. I'm glad that a couple have had a healthy child--yeah, I know, if not there would be a different headline and it would take prescience over my or my friend's birth of an abnormal child. I'm glad for anyone that has a healthy child these days but I'm more glad for my neighbor than for a "celebrity"" who can afford the expenses of a special needs child. Their situation is not uni

OK, here's the rest of it. Sorry. Hollywood people have an advantage, they have MONEY! The usual person with a special needs child has no such advantage. They take what they can get while trying to maintain a lifestyle that advantageous to the child and maintaining the lifestyle that the child can tale advantage of. In short, they usually screwed. VOTE THIS WAY!! Please, vote our representatives OUT!! they're not doing you any go od, they are just serving Their own self interests.

As a parent of a special needs child myself I know exactly what you mean. As a Hanson fan, I just posted this for any other Hanson fans on here who might not have known this yet.

Celebrities have been held above us as special people when, in fact, their children are "special" in that sometimes they turn our "normal" despite their parents' self-interests and self-absorption. Not only celebrities are guilty of this, but countless self-absorbed parents who thought that they would get love from their progeny that they lacked from their own parents...one can only hope that reason will prevail in the coming generations and parents will love their children for what they are and not what they can make up for in the parents' emotional deprivations.

Yay Zac and Kate! I hope they are having a wonderful time with little Shepherd. I like the fact that their names are unique, though River is not what I would have chosen. Penelope isn't bad, and neither is Viggo. I wonder how big their tour bus is going to have to be? That makes seven little ones (Tay-4, Ike-2, and Zac-1) in one little bus...yikes!

Thanks for the link. I read this. I can't believe one of the Hanson boys is old enough to have kids. LOL Makes me feel very aged.

Well actually at 22 years old he's the youngest of the three. And both his older brothers already have kids. The oldest Isaac(27) and his wife Nikki have a son Everett who is almost 2 and Nikki is expecting their second in either June or July. And the middle one Taylor(25) and his wife Natalie have three Ezra 5, Ellie 3, and River 2, and it hasn't been confirmed yet but there is a rumor that she is expecting their fourth and if it's true is due in either Novemeber or December.

Wow, that is so amazing. I can't believe how grown up everyone is! Just wow! I feel so old now, yet so behind! LOL I was like 13 when they came out, and they were my life! It's just so strange to think of them as husbands and fathers! LOL But I am definitely very happy for all of them! I think a part of me will always see them as they were. I mean, Taylor is just under a month older than me! It's just so amazing to me.

As I said in a reply to someone's post,that the name's can be family member's that they are showing love and rememberance of by naming their child those name's.My daughter has 2 middle names and I do not have a problem with it.Royality has more name's then that.I just looked at the link and saw the other children's name's in the family,the one boy is Ezra.Ezra is from the bible.Penelope is a very old fashioned name,again can be a relative or in a book or a movie they read or saw.River,actor River Phoenix and I have heard the name several times.The name River is a bit different,but I guess name's have to get stated somewhere,huh?lol.And Everette is a perfectly normal name.
