Two years ago on May 9th, 2017, New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel gave birth to a healthy baby boy, who she named Charlie Wolf. On October 9th of 2019, there was a second baby named Charlie Wolf, the son of none other than fashion designer Lauren Conrad. Both births were announced from People magazine.
Though the birth happened at the beginning of the month, Zooey hasn’t yet commented on the unique name stealing, until today. When asked about how she felt about Conrad naming her son the same name two years after Zooey did, she said: “That was so weird, right? I don’t think she knew it.”
“We have a really good mutual friend,” said Zooey, “and she was like, ‘Did you know that Lauren Conradâ¦’ I said, ‘No, that’s so funny!” So she’s evidently pretty okay about the existence of two Charlie Wolf’s in the celebrity child circuit.
She did, however, note that Charlie Wolf was a “really specific name” which some fans think means she holds some resentment for the name game. Zooey is also mother to four-year-old Elsie Otter. Conrad is the mother of Liam James, age two.
