Stassi Schroeder finally had her baby. The Vanderpump Rules gave birth to a baby girl named Hartford Charlie Rose. Stassi and Beau made the announcement via People on Friday, January 8. Baby Hartford’s name was chosen in honor of Beau’s father and Stassi’s grandmother.
Their names are Charlie and Rose, respectively. However, fans don’t like the name for several reasons. Some claim that “Hartford” is the same name as Hartford, Connecticut or The Hartford auto insurance company. Others can’t believe that the couple would name their child after a controversial journalist.
Vanderpump Rules fans react to the name of Stassi and Beau’s child
On Thursday, January 7, Stassi Schroeder and her husband, Beau Clark, welcomed their first child together. Interestingly enough, their daughter has the same name as Charlie Rose, the disgraced 60 Minutes host. The journalist has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 30 women. According to People’s report, Hartford’s middle name only honors Beau’s father and Stassi’s grandmother, not the infamous journalist himself.
“We truly cannot begin the describe the happiness and joy we are feeling at this moment,” the couple revealed to People. “It’s something that you hear from all new parents right after birth, but something magical happens. We are feeling so blessed and grateful to have a beautiful and most importantly, healthy baby girl.”
Pump Rules viewers took to Twitter to share their reaction. Fan account @LoveAndyC was one of the first to make the announcement on Friday. She tweeted: “Don’t shoot the messenger. For those interested…” Her fellow fans had plenty to say about the name choice. Here are just some of the comments:
- “Do they know why Charlie Rose was ousted from CBS?”
- “Hartford CHARLIE ROSE?!?”
- “We could have decided Rose Charlie… but then, ya know. Charlie Rose. Lolol.”
- “Their first choice was Hackensack Harvey Weinstein.”
- “Sounds like the name of nice future supporter of white supremacy!”
- “Harford ?? sounds like a hospital name.”
However, comments were mixed. Others thought the name was pretty. Most viewers bypassed the controversial name and congratulated the couple. And then some argued that the name was chosen to honor their relatives, no one else.
