We were delighted to see such a peaceful and contented Mama-and-baby duo grace the pages of the May 20th issue of Us Weekly. In the spread, celebrity mom Lisa Ling, who hosts Our America, proudly shows off the precious baby girl she recently had with husband Paul Song.
Born in early March, the daughter of the 39-year-old journalist and her oncologist husband, 47, was given quite an adventurous-sounding name that is new to us – Jett. How fantastic!
Ling admitted to the magazine that the couple had considered adoption after enduring two miscarriages, one in 2010, and another in 2011. Then, along came such a pleasant baby-on-the-way surprise.
While the name Jett reminds of so many things we adore – jet-setting around the globe, high-speed jets that fly us in style to exotic locales (okay, in our daydreams, but still), the New York Jets (rah, rah)– the coupled revealed to US Weekly that the name was actually based on Jet Li, of martial arts lore, and Joan Jett.
Hey, we simply cannot argue with that level of coolness! We can see that, already, this chick Jett Ling has got it going on.
