Chris on

Cool yet classic name!

romy on

Congrats to them. I always thought they were so cute when they appeared on mtv’s Newlyweds. Hudson doesn’t seem to go with the classic Isabella, but they both sound ok and not too out there. I don’t care for the last name as first name trend though.

Henri on

I love the name Hudson (I’m a little biased… that’s my nephew’s name!). Congratulations!

Rebecca on

Congrats to the Lacheys!!!!! Love, love, love the name – my 1 year old nephew’s name is Hudson, so I may be a little biased (teeheee) 🙂

Shannon on

Aww how sweet, I hope Nick too will have a lovely family one day – he would make a great dad.

Sara on

Hudson is my son’s name and I hope it doesn’t get too popular. I had a popular name growing up and I hated it. Good choice though Drew!

kate on

Let’s hope he doesn’t inherit the Lachey nose!

Nikki on

aww love the name. congrats, Drew!(:

Shannon on

I grew up across the river from Cincinnati, in Covington, KY. How refreshing that Mr. Lachey has relocated his family there. Congrats to him and his family!

Melanie on

JMO on

Love the name Hudson. In fact I know one and he’s super cute!! conrats!

annica on

happy for you all of you, love your children like you never loved any thing more. they grow up so fast, hoping all is healthy, and stable in their lives.

romy on

Haha Kate. At least a bigger nose on a guy isn’t so bad! That reminds me of my brother and his wife. They were always joking about the kids getting his nose.

Kristine on

Awww..Love the name! I am kind of partial to it though because my sons name is Hudson Cole and I have a little girl named Kaydence Avery 🙂 Congrat’s you guys

I’d forgotten that they were even expecting! Congrats to them!

Luna on

I love that name, Hudson Nicholas. Isabella Claire is gorgeous too. I love how they used Uncle Nick’s name as Hudson’s middle name. Congratulations Drew, Lea, and Isabella on baby Hudson. 🙂

Elizabeth on

Congrats!! Kate that was a rude comment- the Lachey mean are HOT!!!
