‘KISS’ singer Paul Stanley has been over the moon since the arrival of his second daughter, Emily Grace, and jokes that he’s not “cool enough” to have wacky names for his children.
Paul said that he likes sticking with more traditional names so that his children won’t regret them later in life. Paul explains;
“I guess we’re not cool enough for names like Peach or Astro Girl. We were a little more traditional and stick with names our children hopefully won’t regret when they grow up. Your kids aren’t objects for amusement, so why would you give them a name that would subject them to possible ridicule at school? Kids can be pretty tough on each other, and who wants to put a child named Spaghetti through school?”
Stanley joked about having daughters, saying; “I always say I’ve learned that girls are God’s revenge. It’s payback for my past.” Paul went on to gush about how happy he is to have his new baby girl. He said;
“Honestly, it’s just the greatest gift. There’s a relationship and a bond between dads and daughters that only a dad can understand. It’s very unique. To have my last two children be girls is pretty spectacular. My house is really what most people would wish for and dream of. I have the greatest kids, an amazing wife. My 4-year-old was holding Emily like a 40-year-old would. Before we went to the hospital, he dressed up in his best clothes on his own and went there and had her in his lap. It’s really something very profound because you get to see that children really are a reflection of their parents. If you spend the time and the effort, you get something great for it. I couldn’t write a better story if I tried. This has all turned out better than I could have anticipated. My life is blessed but I’ve worked hard for those blessings.”
So often we heard about the fathers that abandon their children or don’t help support their kids, so it’s really inspiring to hear the stories of dads like Paul who love their children more than anything.
