Nearly two months after Paulina Rubio and her boyfriend, musician Gerardo Bazua, welcomed their first child together, the singer has revealed the baby’s name. In an interview with Hola! magazine, Rubio shared that the little boy is named Eros.
In Greek mythology, Eros is the god of love whose Roman counterpart is Cupid.The Mexican superstar, known to her fans as “La Chica Dorada” (the golden girl), told the magazine, “From the beginning we decided to name him after the son of a Greek god.”
Eros is Paulina’s second child. She has a five-year-old son, Andrea Nicolas, from her marriage to Nicolas Vallejo, which ended in 2013. Rubio and Bazua met that same year when he auditioned for La Voz… México while she was a mentor.
The singer described this time as “a new chapter” in her life when “family is the most important.” Nevertheless, her fans need not worry that Paulina will abandon her career as an entertainer; she is set to perform in Miami tonight (April 28th) at the Billboard Latin Music Awards, her first performance since welcoming her second child.
