In an interview with Pep.ph, Coleen revealed the precious meaning behind their son's chosen name. "His name is Amari. Billy was the one who chose it," she reveals. "He says it just popped in his mind, and when he searched it, he saw that it means 'promised by God,' and as we shared in one of our vlogs, that is definitely the story of this baby and this pregnancy, so it’s perfect."
In Preview’s September cover story, which features a heartfelt letter penned by Coleen herself, the actress wrote: “In spite of everything that’s been happening around us, I’m still so grateful that I got to enjoy this pregnancy. I want to look back on this pregnancy and remember all the happiness that each milestone brought us. I want to remember that, even in such a gloomy time, this was more than enough, and it was all we needed for us to be filled to the brim with joy and hope.”
“I’m gonna tell him that he was that ray of hope that kept us going, and he’s the reason why we never had a bad day in what many consider to be a bad year.”
Congratulations, Coleen and Billy! We can’t wait to see more adorable photos of Amari!
