Aaron Paul is changing his name! The Breaking Bad star has filed a legal petition to change his last name officially. While the 43-year-old actor is legally named Aaron Sturtevant, he has decided to get it changed to Aaron Paul, a name he has been known within the industry for years.
Additionally, the actor is also filing a petition to change the name of his seven-month-old baby boy. Continue reading to know more about the development.
Aaron Paul Legally Changes his Last Name
Tabloid TMZ has obtained the legal documents filed by Aaron, which state that he wants to officially change his last name to Paul. His wife, Lauren Parsekian, is also joining him in changing her last name to Paul.
The reason they have given behind their decision is that they want to conform to Aaron’s professional name and also want to keep the family name consistent. Meanwhile, the only family member who is not getting her name changed is Aaron and Lauren’s four-year-old daughter, Story Annabelle Paul, since she already had the desired family name.
Aaron is also Changing his Son’s Name
Aaron’s son, who was born in April this year, was initially named Casper Emerson Paul on his birth certificate. The star is now changing his son’s name to Ryden Caspian Paul, the same name with which he introduced him on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in April.
Aaron had also referred to his son as Ryden Caspian Paul while announcing his birth on Instagram. “My little man. Ryden Caspian Paul. So happy you are out in this world you beautiful boy you,” he wrote, sharing some adorable photos of his newborn.
“I promise to make you proud little guy. We have been absorbing this baby boy for the last month and feel it’s time to finally share the news of his arrival. We love you endlessly,” he added.
Meanwhile, Lauren had written, “Ryden Caspian Paul 💙 We’ve spent the last month getting acquainted with this little guy and we couldn’t be more in love. Born on a full moon, he has such a gentle and knowing spirit. I’m so deeply thankful that he chose us to be a part of his journey.”
The Star had Announced his Son’s Birth on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
Soon after Ryden’s birth, Aaron appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s show, and announced, “His name is Ryden and I love him,” adding, “he’s the best,” while showing photos of the baby to the audience.
The star also said that his daughter was also in love with her brother, stating, “She can’t squeeze him enough. Like, lays on top of him, suffocates him. It’s her doll.” He also added that he had asked his Breaking Bad co-star Bryan Cranston to be his son’s godfather.
“I asked Bryan on his birthday if he would be our baby’s godfather. He’s very excited, very honored. I love the man to death. He’s one of my best friends in the world, and, so yeah, it was just a no-brainer,” he continued.
