An Andalusia couple are getting a lot of attention for naming their son Krimson Tyde – in honor of their favorite team.
As WHNT’s news partner AL.com reported, Summer and Steven Steele had a new baby boy on Dec. 17.
“The reason we named him Krimson is that we are big Alabama fans and it is a very unique name and we loved it,” Summer Steele told Alabama Media Group on Sunday.
Weighing seven pounds and five ounces, Krimson did have a health setback on Saturday that put him back in doctor’s care. He’s now home with medicine but “still having stomach issues.”
Summer told AL.com she’s “surprised at the media attention as well as some of the vitriol she’s received” for giving her baby his unusual name.
“I’m very shocked, I didn’t think people would make a very big deal about it,” said Steele.
