The Pirates of the Caribbean star, who welcomed the little boy in January (11) with wife Miranda Kerr, reveals the child’s name was born out of a period of extreme sadness and joy.
During an appearance on U.S. TV chat show Live With Regis and Kelly on Wednesday (27Apr11), he said, “I was convinced we were going to have a girl. Because my grandmother actually passed when Flynn was conceived and she was really dear to my heart.
“Evelyn was my grandmother, on my father’s side… I was thinking Evelyn. We’re going to have a girl, it’s going to be called Evelyn. And it was a boy. And so Flynn! Evelyn, Flynn. Flynn, Evelyn.”
