The Body Coach Joe Wicks reveals his unusual baby name pick

Joe and model Rosie Jones took a little bit of time to pick a unique moniker for their gorge newborn...


Did you know The Body Coach has just become a dad for the first time? 


Joe Wicks and model girlfriend Rosie Jones welcomed their baby girl on 29 July 2018.

Just over a week later, Joe revealed their slightly unusual name pick on social media. His emoji usage suggesting it wasn’t the easiest decision for the couple…

“We’ve finally named our baby ?” Joe wrote on Insta, on 7 August. “We have decided to call our daughter Indie ☺️”


Indie, typically a girls name, can be a shortened version of names we’ve heard before, like India and Indigo.

It can be pretty gender neutral, though, also working as a fab nickname for boys named Indiana.

Generally, we reckon the name Indie means ‘independent’. Think: indie films, indie music, indie brands…


P.S. We love that Rosie and Joe took their time in naming their little one.

For some of us, we’ve got THE name from the get-go, but for others, it definitely requires a little time, and often a lot of discussion ?

We also love the way Joe announced the news to the world, too. His shirtless Instagram showed him cradling his little girl in the perfect daddy-daughter, skin-to-skin shot. Aww!

Have your say
