"I had a short list of names and actually had a different second name picked that I felt VERY confident in it up until the moment he was born -- to a point of certainty. However, when I sat with him after the chaos and reflected on our journey together to this point and who he could become in his life, it was switched," Christmas shared with ET.
"The name, which was not my first choice until this moment, stayed stuck on my tongue as I watched him in this new world. My heart sang and I knew he was special and needed a strong, unique name to remind him of his what he can contribute to this world."
Christmas admitted to Us Weekly after the season aired that she could see herself dating Paul and had feelings for him, but a romance outside of the house never came to fruition, possibly due to their 11-year age gap.
Christmas was previously engaged to Geoff Kercher.
She announced their engagement in October 2016 on Instagram, and according to the former couple's website on The Knot, they originally set a wedding date for September 3, 2017 in Raleigh, NC.
