This is a baby, not Baby (Picture: Getty)We love a story about parents naming their children all sort of weird and whacky things.
The latest unusual moniker to be given to a baby is…Baby. Single mum Susie Bradley, who is set to star on TV show Married at First Sight in Australia, revealed how she and her ex-partner decided to name their four-year-old daughter Baby.
The cosmetic nurse, from Queensland, said that it was always on her list of baby names since before she had children.
The 25-year-old, who was 21 when she became pregnant with her high school sweetheart, had written a list of names since she was a teenager.
When it came to choosing one, she asked her partner what he thought about Baby. He liked it and they went forth with it.
Susie has also added a full stop to her daughter’s health insurance card to signify that Baby is her name and not a description.
Maybe they could have used a ‘naming consultant’ to help them think of something a bit more inventive.
Now, having been single for the past year, Susie is looking for a new husband to bring into the family.
No one puts baby in a corner, remember? (Picture: Getty)‘When I was in high school, I used to write a list of names I liked for my children and that was always on my list,’ she said to The Telegraph.
‘Then when it came to naming our daughter, we just weren’t set on anything so one day I jokingly said to my partner at the time, “we should just call her Baby,” and he agreed.
‘On her Medicare card it has her name, Baby, but then it has a full stop after it which signifies she’s not a baby, her name just is actually Baby.’
Susie revealed how she’s become single for the first time since she was 14 and so decided to take part in the reality TV social experiement.
The premise of it includes two people being matched on their personalities and getting married the first time they meet each other (the clue is in the name).
For Susie, she was predicted to be paired with Billy Vincent, an aspiring model and personal trainer from New South Wales.
The show has also been popular in the U.S and Denmark where it is said to have started.
As part of it, the couples spend their wedding night in a hotel before leaving for a honeymoon. Upon returning home, they live together as a married couple for eight weeks. Thereafter they choose to divorce or stay married.
We wonder how Susie will get on.
