Mother and Baby

Hilary Duff's son has chosen a name for his new sister, and it's. . . different!

Choosing a name for your new arrival is no easy feat.

Does it flow off the tongue? Do the initials accidentally stand for something incriminating? Will everyone in nursery share the same moniker? Will it age well or will Amazon name it's new digital assistant after it (cough, Alexa, cough).

Someone who has abandoned every name-choosing guide is Hilary Duff, who has seemingly settled on something completely different. 

The 30-year-old, who only announced her pregnancy one week ago, appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden to discuss how she has let her 6-year-old son Luca decide the name for his new sibling.

The name Luca is set on, you ask? Cofant Croissant. 

Well, it sure has a ring to it...

"Luca thinks Confant Croissant is the coolest name and I agree. There will be no confusion either and no-one at school will be called Cofant!" Hilary laughed.

James also asked how Luca reacted to the news he is about to have a little sister. 

"He was surprised and now he’s warming up to the idea," the former-Disney actress admitted. "He told his friend at school that he’s having a sister that’s half red butt monkey, so we’ll see!"

A half red butt sister named Cofant Croissant... only in the Duff household!
