A new mum has claimed her husband picked their baby’s name while she was ‘out of it’ after giving birth to him.
Melissa Weiss, who shares six kids with Jeff Weiss, posted a video about what happened on their @theweissfamily’s TikTok account, which has 1.5million followers.
The caption read: “This is actually how we ended up with our baby’s name.”
Many people were gobsmacked at the revelation and said they would be ‘furious’ if their husband did the same.
However, the mum then shared a follow-up video and insisted she found the situation ‘pretty funny’.
She explained: “A lot of people were pressed in the comments that how could I let my husband name the baby while I was like out of it or passed out or whatever. So I thought I’d give you guys like, a little more info about it.
“I had a really high-risk pregnancy with him, I had an emergency induction at 38 weeks and during my labour, I was on all sorts of drugs and I was so out of it and so loopy and the labour lasted for days and it was terrible.
“Then when the baby came he had to go to the NICU right away and so Jeff went with him while I was with the doctors, nurses and they were trying to take care of me.
“So six hours later, I mean I literally after having him passed out, we were reunited and Jeff comes in with Jagger and says, I think his name should be Jagger, I think it fits him.

“And I was still really loopy at that point in time because the drugs took forever to wear off so I didn’t really know what to think because it was a name we had discussed but it definitely wasn’t like at the top of our list.
“So basically we’re in the hospital for a week anyway, we thought about it for the next couple of days, I got to spend some time with the baby, meet the baby and we both ultimately decided that that was the best fit for him and we ended up naming him that.
“It’s pretty funny and yes, my husband did come up with it.”
She added: “It’s definitely not the name that I thought we were going to use going into the hospital that day, but we’re really happy with it and I think it fits him.”
