Pregnant Teddi Mellencamp is almost at the finish line. With just two months left to go on her pregnancy journey, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her husband Edwin Arroyave have finally come to a decision on their top names for baby number three.
Teddi, 38, revealed her top choices to Us Weekly at the 2020 iHeart Radio Podcast Awards on January 17. “The three options are Presley, Shay and Dove,” she said.
“We’re going to wait until we meet her, but I know what’s going to go down," Teddi gushed. The wellness coach is due to give birth in March 2020. Edwin, 42, and Teddi are already parents to daughter Slate, 7, and son Cruz, 5. Edwin is also dad to his 11-year-old daughter Isabella.
In October 2019, the Bravo celeb asked fans for help on Instagram with the baby names. Teddi shared a video of herself and Edwin asking her followers for their ideas. "We are on the struggle bus. We can not come up with a baby name," she began. "We want something unique, cute that goes well with the other kids' names..." Edwin chimed in, "Maybe a Spanish name so my mom can pronounce it right." Teddi replied, "That's up for discussion."
In December, Teddi shared on social media that the top candidates were Presley, Shay, Selena, and Dove. “Sound off with your fave and why?!!” Teddi captioned the pic. “We are a house divided.” The Teddi Tea Pod podcast host announced she was pregnant with her third child in September 2019. She initially kept her pregnancy under wraps.
Teddi gushed over her pregnancy at the event and told Us Weekly, "I said to my husband, ‘We don’t even fit in our cars anymore!’ Think about it, there’s six of us! I’m like … ‘We’re going to start having to look at minivans! What’s happening? We have to really figure it out. We’re like, ‘Do we convert the playroom? What do we do?’ We haven’t even made those decisions yet, but we have to.”
Slate was a big fan of the name Selena. However, Cruz wasn't so keen on the idea. “My son is so pissed that I’m having a girl that he’s picking out names like Catboy, Pugsley,” Teddi added.
