Alex Meraz plays a werewolf named Paul in the “Twilight” series, splendidly I’m sure. I just received an exclusive e-mail bulletin from Life & Style Weekly informing me that he and his lovely wife Kim are expecting their second child.
They named their first one Somak, which should probably be a disqualifier from further progeny, but that’s not why I’m passing this along. What I loved about the announcement from Life & Style was this:
”They’re having another boy,” a source close to the couple reveals to Life & Style. ”They’re ecstatic and can’t wait to meet the newest addition to their family.”
There’s actually some valuable information in that paragraph. I now know that Somak is a boy’s name. But does it really take an anonymous source to reveal that an expectant couple is happy and eager?
I would be more impressed if the source had said, “They’re hoping Kim will have a 36-month pregnancy, like an elephant, so at least by then Somak will be out of diapers and they can come
up with a name that makes some freaking sense.”
