Megan Gale and Shaun Hampson FINALLY have a name for their daughter

Megan Gale baby hospital

Bloomin’ brilliant! Megan Gale and her partner Shaun Hampson have finally decided on a name for their precious baby girl who was born a week ago and it’s a perfect moniker for the little one who’s brought some more sunshine into their growing family.

Life’s just Rosie

After much deliberation, model Megan Gale has revealed on Instagram last night that the name of her new baby daughter is the delightful, Rosie May Dee Hampson.

Accompanied by a gorgeous snap of the raven-haired bub snoozing and looking all snugly and cute, the model explained that the reason why it took her and her baby daddy, AFL player Shaun Hampson, so long to decide was that they “just wanted to be really sure that it was the one for her.”

🌹Rosie May Dee Hampson 🌹 We were lucky we had so many great names for this little girl. We just wanted to be really sure that it was the one for her. This was a name I had really liked initially when I was pregnant , Shaun wasn't a fan so I'd crossed it off the list and we focused only on one other name that we both liked. Then when she was born Shaun said she really suited Rosie but we still weren't 100% and also still keen on some of the other names too. Talk about indecisiveness! Anyway, yesterday we stared long and hard at her while she was snoozing and it just all came together. No other name seemed to suit her more than Rosie. And the name has a beautiful significance too, much like River's. Rosie is a nod to my Nana (Dad's Mum, Rosella), May is my Mum's name, Dee is Shaun's Mum's name and obviously Hampson, the family name from Tom, Shaun's Dad. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

So many choices!

Apparently the new parents had lots of great name options for their second child (they also have a son River, who’s 3), making the selection process quite tough – especially as Shaun wasn’t originally keen on the floral inspired name.

“This was a name I had really liked initially when I was pregnant, Shaun wasn’t a fan so I’d crossed it off the list and we focused only on one other name that we both liked,” she explained in her post.

Their little flower

Once their new bub entered the world it was a different story, with Megan saying that Shaun felt their daughter really suited the name Rosie. But they were still keen on some of the other names too, so they decided to wait a bit longer to be 100% sure.

Finally, more than a week after her birth, the indecisive parents decided on their daughter’s official name.

“…yesterday we stared long and hard at her while she was snoozing and it just all came together. No other name seemed to suit her more than Rosie.”

WHEN 3 BECOMES 4 ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Our darling little bun came out of the oven earlier this week 🍞 Sweet little soul. You are already so blessed. Healthy as can be with a family that has fallen head over heels in love with you. A big brother that is already so attentive and protective, (who has also handled all these big changes like a boss ) a Dad who is so smitten with you and that you already have firmly wrapped around your little finger. And myself, who's been so lucky to have carried you in my belly for 9 months and to have had the pleasure and privilege of birthing you into this world (and can I just say .. we nailed it kid 👊🏼). I'm so committed to being the absolute best mother, friend and role model for you. Thank you for choosing me to be your Mama, my darling girl 💖

Inspired by family

Apparently the name Rosie is a nod to Rosella, the name of Megan’s Nana, with May and Dee also the names of Megan and Shaun’s respective mothers. How lovely is that?! Big brother River also got a family name when he was born, with Rivers being the maiden name of Megan’s mother.

Both Rosie and River are reflective of nature too and we think they sound great together – so nice work there mumma Megan!

After the model opened up earlier this year about a miscarriage and their struggle to conceive another child, things are certainly looking a lot brighter now for Megan and Shaun with their new rosy little family member. Congrats guys!

Did you take a long time to decide your child’s name?
