While visiting the PEOPLE offices earlier this week, Bear Grylls shared some exciting news with the Celebrity Baby Blog — he and wife Shara are expecting their third son! The baby is due in January and the couple is considering the name Huckleberry for their new addition. He’ll join big brothers Marmaduke, 2 ½, and Jesse, 5. When asked about the unique choice of names for his boys, the Man vs. Wild star, 34, laughed and said,

"Jesse, Duke and Huck! Won’t that be great when they’re 18?!"

Bear and Shara have been married for eight years. Man vs. Wild airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on the Discovery Channel.

Congrats! Isn’t Marmaduke a kind of animal?


lmfao I’ve always found his choice in names amusing. The only “normal” name is Jesse.

I can’t wait to see the photo.

Well, considering his name is Bear, I don’t really think any of his names are that odd. Just a bit different. But cute! He’s a cutie pie, congrats to the family!

I’m probably the only one, but I love the name Marmaduke. Not something I would name my own kid, but I think it could be pulled off in the EU. I also love Huckleberry.

Congrat’s to Bear, Shara, & the whole family!

Momtotwo, Bear is his nickname since he was younger. He’s real name is Edward Michael, I looked it up!

Congrats to Bear & Shara! And ofcourse to Marmaduke & Jesse, it must be fun for them to have such an adventurous dad 😉

Nicole, Marmaduke isn’t a KIND of dog, it’s the name OF a dog. Kind of like how Casper is a name of a ghost but it’s a real human name! Isn’t it funny how certain cartoons impact our perception of certain names?

Bear’s name is actually Edward. Bear is just his nickname!

I like the name jesse…. Marmaduke sounds like a chocolate shop. “Welcome, to Marmaduke’s chocolate” Huckleberry? idk…. But its their kid…. LOL love the show and Bear
