Six days after welcoming her first bundle of joy into the world, former Bachelor contestant Bekah Martinez finally gave her little cutie a name! On February 8, she took to Instagram to introduce “Baby Ruth” to the world!
“Introducing… Ruth Ray De La Luz Leonard ✨ (aka Ruthie Ray),” she captioned a sweet photo of the baby girl. “Ruth= Grayston’s grandmother’s name, and one of my favorite biblical stories. Hebrew for friend or companion.” She also went on to explain the sweet reasons that she and boyfriend Grayston Leonard chose the rest of her moniker.
She chose “Ray” to be part of her daughter’s name simply because she liked the way it sounded, saying, “Ruthie Ray is too damn cute.” De La Luz is her father’s middle name and means “of the light” in Spanish, which sounds perfect for the little ray of sunshine and was also serves as a “tribute” to Bekah’s Mexican heritage. Last but not least, Leonard is “her daddy’s last name,” so there ya go!
A couple of days before finally sharing little Ruth’s name, Bekah explained that she wasn’t just holding out to keep fans on their toes. “We didn’t have any names picked out when she was born so it took a few days as we got to know her little personality,” she explained to a fan on Instagram. Makes sense to us!
Soon after announcing the name, Bekah gave fans some very real insight into new motherhood by sharing a photo of herself with breastmilk all over her shirt. “Breaking out all over the place, everything’s got breast milk on it, running exclusively on naps, crying every other hour … and feeling so lucky to be going through this.” How much more honest can you get?
