Actor took weeks to name son Otis
Spiderman Tobey Maguire has admitted his big baby struggle, not the sleepless nights or dodging the paps with a pushchair, but deciding what to name 3-year-old Ruby and 7-month-old Otis.
Confessing it took him and wife, Jennifer, weeks to choose their son’s name, the pair only decided on Otis when the un-named little one needed a passport. “We didn’t name either of our children before the birth. We like to meet them and react to them. I went down for the birth certificate on the last day we could do it and we were so excited.”
Realising they hadn’t actually decided on a spelling for Otis, cheeky chappy Tobey played a bit of a mean joke on wife, Jennifer, taking home a fake second birth certificate form with their new son named, Oatis. “I spelt it ‘Oatis’ on a second form and brought it back to my wife, acting very innocent!”
Luckily poor Jen saw the funny side!
