Earlier this week, reality star and influencer Kaitlynn Carter announced the arrival of her second child with her partner Kristopher Brock. At the time, she did not reveal the name of her little one. This morning, she shared her child’s name and the first photo of the little one’s face.
Kaitlynn and the fashion designer welcomed a baby girl on February 23rd. The Hills: New Beginnings star has now shared that the couple chose to name her Willow Riven Brock. The name choice of Willow makes for a naming pattern Kaitlynn has used with her children. Her first child, who she welcomed in September 2021, also has a tree name: Rowan.
Choosing nature-inspired names is not out of character for the influencer who often posts about her adventures outdoors, from soaking up the sun at the beach to tracking through the woods in her home state of New Hampshire. Kaitlynn is even an ambassador for the American Wild Horse Campaign, a non-profit organization that fights to keep wild horses in the Western public lands free to roam. Before welcoming Willow, Kaitlynn had shared that she and Kristopher were having difficulty choosing a name. Two days before her daughter was born, she posted in the caption of a photo, “having the hardest time with names. I love too many and nothing feels quite right. send help!!”
Kaitlynn and Kristopher, who has a son named Charles Wright from a previous relationship, began dating in May 2020. Prior to her relationship with Kristopher, Kaitlynn dated Brody Jenner. Kaitlynn and Brody, who is expecting his first child this year, dated from 2013 to 2019. The couple had a wedding ceremony but it was not official. It is reported that before their breakup, Kaitlynn gave him an ultimatum: they either get married officially or have a baby. He allegedly chose neither, resulting in their breakup.
Congratulations again to Kaitlynn and Kristopher on the arrival of baby Willow!
