‘My wife wanted Wolf. She was fighting hard for Wolf,’ said Kieran revealing they ‘found’ the name ‘in the hospital the day that he was born.’

The brother of Macaulay Culkin joked: ‘And we thought: “That’s great, but instead of pulling the trigger on it let’s torture ourselves for about seven weeks disagreeing with names before we come around to the name that we picked.”‘

They were unaware of the sex of the baby before the birth and ‘had a long list of names’ to choose from at that point. 

Jazz found herself in a medical situation where she needed to ‘hold the kid in’ for over an hour to avoid having to spend an additional day at the hospital.

‘So she did this, she’s in bed and we have a dry erase board and we just went over every name that we had thought of and being like: “Let’s focus on girl names ’cause, you know, we like these,”‘ he recalled.

‘And we narrowed it down to two girl names that we really liked and we agreed that it’s gonna be one of those two names if it’s a girl and if it’s a boy we’re screwed. And we had a boy and spent seven weeks arguing about names.’

Ellen jokingly asked why they waited for the delivery room to narrow down names instead of ‘during the time of pregnancy – which I believe is nine months.’

‘Uh-huh, yeah, that would take some organization and some planning – that’s not something that either of us do,’ said Kieran with a laugh.

He and Jazz, who married in 2013, used Tito as a stand-in name for their new baby before finalizing Wilder Wolf as their choice, according to The Hollywood Reporter. 

Kieran recently appeared on the ITV program Lorraine and confessed to feeling ‘dad guilt’ for managing to sleep while working out of town after Kinsey was born.

‘When we had a kid the first time, I actually left town to do a talk show and was out of town those first few days and I was getting a lot of sleep, and felt guilty,’ he said.

During the interview he dished that ‘I actually love the diaper changing’ which he regards as a ‘connected moment’ and a ‘bonding thing.’
