“I’m in no position to comment,” the Give Them Lala author, 30, said when asked about Shay’s moniker choice, Summer Moon Honey. “I named my baby Ocean so, like, anything can be a name now.”

The Utah native and her fiancé, Randall Emmett, welcomed Ocean, now 1 month, in March. Kent spoke exclusively to Us Weekly in April about the inspiration behind their daughter’s name.

“First of all, Randall loves the water,” the Give Them Lala Beauty creator explained last month. “A complete ocean fanatic. I don’t mess with it because I feel like it’s very powerful, and I can’t explain it. I don’t know what’s in there, but I’m the crazy person on the Santa Monica boardwalk that’s like, ’Save the dolphins!’ … I have an orca tattoo. I’m a huge fan of the ocean.”

She and the producer, 50, first thought of the moniker during a trip to the Bahamas. “Randall and I walked past a yacht that was called The O​​cean Alexander,” the former SUR server said. “And I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, the name Ocean is fantastic.’ And I told Randall that I loved it. And he was all for it. So we’ve had the name and we knew whether it was a boy or a girl, that was the name.”

As for Shay, 36, the “One More Time” singer gave birth to her and Brock Davies’ first child together in April. While the California native has yet to describe the name’s meaning, she did accidentally reveal it one month ahead of her birth with the Instagram handle for her baby-to-be’s account.

“We have [been talking], and it’s very, like, mommy-oriented,” Kent told Us in April. “I check in on her, she checks in on me. I just can’t help but look at her and be like, ‘I love you. So, can we stop the nonsense? Why do we keep attacking each other?’”
