Megan Fox chooses unusual name for newborn baby boy

It’s another boy for Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green.

E! News have confirmed that the couple welcomed their third child together on Thursday 4 August.

And it seems as if the 30-year-old actress and her husband have decided to look towards the natural world for baby name inspiration, as they have fallen upon an unusual moniker for their newborn son.

That’s right; he’s been named Journey River Green - which is oddly fitting, considering what Fox said about her pregnancy a few months ago.

Sitting down with Jimmy Kimmel in May, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actress claimed that her unborn baby had been communicating with her – and that he wanted her to go on a journey.

“You don’t hear an audible voice, but you hear messages, if you’re open to it,” she explained to the late-night host.

“For instance, this baby wanted me to live somewhere else so we’re moving to a whole different place in Los Angeles because I feel like that’s where this baby wants to be raised.”

Journey joins three-year-old Noah Shannon and two-year-old Bodhi Ransom, the couple’s other two sons together.

He also has a big brother in 14-year-old Kassius, Green’s son from a previous relationship.

Fox's pregnancy came as a surprise to the couple, as she and Green, her husband of ten years, had announced their separation less than a year earlier.

They've since been working to repair their marriage, spending Father’s Day together earlier this year.

Speaking to Extra, Fox revealed that their plans for the day were going to be low-key.

She said: “I don’t think we’re gonna celebrate… [although] he never gets to eat anything fun because my house is so clean and I make him eat really clean, too, so maybe I’ll get him a German chocolate cake or something.

“He’ll be so happy to see junk food.”
