24 star Marisol Nichols may be used to beating the clock on her television show, but never expected her baby to as well! Nevertheless, daughter Rain India Lexton was born four days early, arriving at 2:18 a.m. this morning, Tuesday, September 30th. Rain, who weighed in at 7 lbs, 5 oz, is the first child for Marisol and her husband Taron Lexton. In a statement, the couple shared,

"We are all doing great. She is beautiful and gorgeous and more amazing than we ever imagined."

Marisol, 36, announced the pregnancy and sex of the baby in May, celebrating her baby shower in August. She also participated in a CBB-exclusive interview while expecting. Marisol’s due date had been this coming Saturday, October 4th.

Congratulations to the couple! I could always see her with a girl. I bet the name suits that little girl just perfectly.

What a beautiful name! I have always liked first names to be longer than middle names, so my instinct was to say that India Rain would’ve been prettier, but I love it this way. Rain India Lexton is a lovely combination.

I like the names as seperates, but put together I am not sure they sound correct. I think the flow of India Rain would be better. Congrats to her anyways!

Congratulations to Marisol and Taron. I for one do like the name, it has a hippie feel throughout. I am not surprised Marisol had her early, I thought she looked like she was carrying on the large side throughout her pregnancy. She’s probably happy to get her out a few days sooner!

I love the name but then my daughter is called India Rose, and Rain is on my fave names list for other daughters so i am biased!

I agree that India Rain would have flowed better, but the name as it is is lovely. I really like it. Congrats to Marisol and her hubby!

I love the name. I think it is funny how often we choose the first and middle names for our children based on the ‘sound’ or the ‘flow’ of the two together- really though, after the child is a few months old, how often are they referred to as both names???? Just a thought. I guess ‘flow’ is the reason that there are so many little girls out there with the middle name ‘Marie!’ It is a middle name that flows so nicely with most first names:)


Very cute name.Congrats to Marisol and her hubby.I like the name Rain,in italian means “pioggia” but in english sounds better!
