“I am putting up the name bracket right now,” the “Mommies Tell All” podcast cohost, 33, said on her Monday, August 31, Instagram Story. “Tanner and I have had some last-minute disagreements so we were trying to make sure all the names that we both wanted — a couple that I like that he doesn’t like, a couple that he likes that I don’t like — are on.”
The Colorado native explained how the bracket worked, noting, “I’m going to show you a sweet 16, and we’re going to go down probably every couple days because it’s 12 weeks until I’m 40 weeks … and I want to make sure the bracket is completed before the baby gets here.”
The Bachelor in Paradise alums’ end goal is to “narrow down” the list of monikers until there is only a single name left.
So far, the former reality stars’ list includes Reed, Cohen, Westley/West, James, Dean, Roper, Callum, Rivers, Jack, Atticus, Forrest, Porter, Landry, Baker, Connor and Thatcher.
“Some of the names are repeated from last year because we still love them, but also included some new names we love for baby boy,” Roper concluded. She and Tolbert, also 33, who also share daughter Emerson, 3, and son Brooks, 13 months, used the same method to vote on names for their son before his July 2019 birth.
Not only was the little one’s first name in the bracket’s final four, but his middle name, Easton, was as well, along with Reed and Beckett.
“[Reed and Brooks] are actually my top two choices so I’m cool either way,” the Missouri native told E! News following Brooks’ arrival. “We have to decide tonight because we have to go fill out the birth certificate tomorrow morning so I’m going to let Jade make the final decision. Since she’s the one that pushed him out, she can decide between those two names.”
