Reggie Bush welcomed a healthy baby girl last week — and now Life & Style can reveal her name!
In an exclusive interview with the NFL star, who also happens to be Kim Kardashian's ex-boyfriend, Reggie says that he and girlfriend Lilit Avagyan decided to name her Briseis.
"It's Greek," he told Life & Style at Mission Athletecare's launch for its new line Enduracool Instant Cooling Gear event in NYC today. "We were watching the movie Troy and my fiancée, who was my girlfriend at the time, said, 'If we ever have a daughter, can we name her that?' And a couple of months later, wouldn't you know! The name was picked out months before she was even thought about. It's crazy."
Reggie and Lilit became parents on May 6. "I was nervous, I was excited, I was scared, I was happy," he recalls of the first moment he laid eyes on his little one. "Every emotion possible was running through me. And then you're like, 'I can't believe this is my baby.' It was really emotional when I was first holding her."

With his very busy schedule, the 28-year-old says he's figured out a few different ways keep in touch with Lilit and Briseis.
"Skyping constantly, putting her on the phone," he says. "Every time I hear her cry in the background, it breaks my heart. She's beautiful.
And since becoming a father, Reggie admits it's changed him forever.
"It has grounded me more. When you have a child, everything you do is about them," he confides. "You're thinking about your child first. Everything. It's grounded me a lot more."
It also helps that he has a wonderful woman by his side. "Lilit's really amazing. I'm very lucky," the athlete shares, adding, "She has a great personality and such a calming spirit. She's there every step of the way and with the baby all day. She's just a great mom."
