In April of this year, The Bachelor alum Bekah Martinez announced she was expecting her third baby with her partner Grayston Leonard with an intricate claymation video. Now, one week after announcing she gave birth, she has revealed her little one’s moniker.
Bekah and Grayston welcomed a baby boy on September 28th and the little one shares a birthday with his dad. The couple didn’t settle on a name for their son right away but ultimately chose to name him Ernest Allison Leonard and will go by the nickname Nesto. The reality star revealed that the moniker is “after my mom and abuelo.” Bekah candidly shared in her post, “Naming a baby is hard!” She went on to explain, “Ruth took 4 days to name, Franklin took 6, and this baby set a record at 8 days old.”
The Good Alma owner has been with Grayston since July 2017 and the couple share two children together. They welcomed their first, a daughter named Ruth Ray De La Luz, in February 2019 and their second child, a son named Franklin James, was born in June 2020.
While Bekah shared the full story of Nesto’s birth on her Patreon, she did share a selection of images from her home water birth. She also divulged alongside the images, “That one time I pushed out our baby on the toilet, the midwife almost missed it, and we all sang happy birthday.”
Congratulations to Bekah and Grayston on the arrival of baby Nesto! We wish them lots of love as they welcome their new arrival into their family.
