“It took me so long to name the baby because I was trying to work with baby daddy Chris Lopez to agree on the name,” Kail told “But we just couldn’t agree.”

“Until we ended things between us for good and I decided I would just pick something I loved, and he agreed to the first name we picked prior to me deciding it would be the name for sure,” Kail explained.
