Olympian Jennie Finch Celebrates Tongue Twisters, Fossil Fuels with New Baby’s Name

"Mom named my little brother WHAT...?!

Olympian Jennie Finch and hubby, San Francisco Giants pitcher Casey Daigle, welcomed their second son yesterday, naming him — wait for it… wait for it… — Diesel Dean Daigle.

And I thought Candy Kirby was bad.

But laugh not!  Diesel’s parents have set him up nicely for a future rap career as D-Cubed, if he should so choose.  And as an added bonus for the little guy, it will be nearly impossible for them to admonish him by his full name due to hazardous tongue-twisting conditions.

“Get back here, Dies Dag… I mean, Diesel Der, Der… oh, forget it.”

Diesel weighed in at 8 lbs., 2 oz. and is 22¼ inches long.  He joins big brother Ace Shane, 5, at home.

Congrats to the all-star athlete parents and their little bundle of fossil fuel!

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
