Kevin Federline talked to MTV about why he and Britney Spears did not release their second son’s name or cleared up the confusion. It was originally believed that the baby’s name was Sutton Pierce but never confirmed. On October 16th, we exclusively reported that his name was actually Jayden James and then TMZ dug up the birth certificate and confirmed it.
Here is what Kevin said:
"It’s the first time that I’ve ever really sat down and talked to somebody about it. Everybody’s been asking me the name and wanting me to verify and all that stuff, and it becomes a little bit tiring. I don’t understand. Why can’t you wait until we’re ready to talk about it? Why does it have to be right after the baby’s born? Why can’t it be two, three, four months later? You know what I mean? Why right now?"
"We just had a baby and didn’t say anything. We didn’t make the name up — that’s the media for you. They try to capture all that and get people interested in our life, so I figured they made the name up to go with one of their stories, and it blew up everywhere. It was funny. It almost proves a point: They don’t really know everything like they seem to think they do, you know?"
"You feel that you owe them a piece, you know? The world, people, whoever. You owe them a piece of something, and you want something for yourself. If everyone knows everything about you and what you’re doing all the time, you don’t have any piece of private to yourself, and that was one thing we wanted to keep for us, for right now. It’s our child."
