One of my favorite moments ever😭Ember meeting Bode for the first time😍She is just the sweetest big sister already. We took some videos that I’m sure we’ll share in our stories soon. Jer and I can’t stop smiling and laughing at the things she says about him and to him. She’s so eager to take care of him and give him lots of lovies💗Postpartum has been hard on my body, but cuddling with these precious little loves makes my heart so full. What an honor it is to be their mama.
Now, Audrey has posted on Instagram and shared all about the little boy’s special name. Since he arrived, fans have been curious about the pronunciation. They also wanted to know how the family came up with his name.
LPBW alum Audrey Roloff shares about Bode’s name
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Audrey shared about Bode’s name. She shared a series of photos of the baby boy. In two photos, Ember is holding Bode on a rocking chair. In the last photo, Audrey is holding her new son in the rocking chair and is giving him a kiss. Behind them is a gorgeous balloon display that features his name.
The former LPBW mom wrote, “Bode’s name means messenger. We pray for our Bode to be a messenger of the Gospel. That his life would be a message of hope, truth, and love to many🙏🏻“.
Then, she continued, “His name is a nod to my maiden name ‘Botti’ pronounced ‘bo-tee,’ as a way to honor my side of the family. His middle name ‘James’ is a family name on the Roloff side. Jeremy, his dad, his grandpa and his great grandpa all have the middle name James☺️”
Of course, LPBW fans were curious about when they came up with the name. Audrey answered this question in her post too and said, “We were pretty set on Bode (pronounced ‘bo-dee’) during my pregnancy but we’re still tossing around other ideas into my 3rd trimester. Then one day randomly Jer’s grandma called him and said, ‘I have a really good name suggestion for you! What about Bode?!’ We were shook😱 It was a confirming affirmation.”
Fans in the comments of Audrey’s post love the meaning behind Bode’s name. They think it’s pretty special that it was even suggested by Jeremy’s grandma.

LPBW should return to TLC this spring. Though Audrey and Jeremy are no longer on the show, you can catch up with the rest of the family.
