Darren Criss mocked his baby’s name online

Glee star Darren Criss and his wife Mia Swier have welcomed their second child, but not everyone is on board with the newborn’s unusual name.

Criss, who started out as Blaine Anderson in Joywas questioned by fans after announcing the happy news on social networks.

The couple are already the proud parents of a two-year-old daughter, Bluesy Belle.

When Bluesy came along, Criss and Mia wrote: “We’ve been making music for years, but this time we made a BEAT. »

“The ultimate collaboration, releasing spring 2022.”

But it was his brother who caused the confusion.

His brother: Brother.

“M&D just delivered their next single,” Criss wrote on social media.

“I feel so bad for this kid,” one fan wrote in response, summarizing the feeling of many.

“I’ll change it as soon as I can.”

Others said the child would have a hard time growing up with the bizarre nickname.

“Darren… I love you… But you just condemned your child to mockery for the rest of his life,” one person wrote.

“Just because you can doesn’t mean you should,” said another. “I’m sorry, but your child is going to be teased.”

One person noted that Brother’s future romantic partners would be faced with calling him by his name.

Glee co-stars Matthew Morrison and Kevin McHale bucked the trend, along with other fans, by praising Criss and his wife for their blessing.

For some, all they saw in the paperwork issues he might encounter in the future.

“It’s going to create so much confusion in his life.” Poor child,” one person wrote.

“Imagine applying for a visa and being rejected, as if you were supposed to state your name and not your brother’s.

“How was this approved? »
