Twitter in a bunch after Kaitlin Bennett 'names' newborn baby Ravioli


The internet is in disbelief after finding out social media personality Kaitlin Bennett has “named” her baby Ravioli.

As more famous faces welcome their offspring, the internet is getting increasingly familiar with unusual names.

In 2004, Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple, which was unusual to say the least. But Hollywood became even more innovative after Kim Kardashian gave birth to North West, while we’re declaring the most odd name of all as Elon Musk and Grimes’ X Æ A-12. We still don’t know how to pronounce it either.

Kaitlin Bennett is the latest figure with a rare baby name – Ravioli. Yes, you read that right.

Twitter can’t handle unusual name

A user tweeted a screenshot of Kaitlin Bennett celebrating Mother’s Day and referring to her child as “Ravioli”, although the original Facebook post is inaccessible at time of writing.

One Twitter user wrote: “Kaitlin Bennett didn’t know it but she opened the door to a whole new tier of non-binary names when she named her baby Ravioli.”

If it’s true, we wonder how Ravioli will feel about it when he starts school?

The Kaitlin Marie account has referred to her newborn as a pasta dish since before his birth and, judging by the way she calls him “little ravioli”, it’s presumably a nickname rather than a legal name:

What’s more, the account seemingly jokes her baby’s full name is inspired by Justin Moldow’s Italian heritage.

“Libs thinks I named my baby Ravioli. And I did. I 100 per cent legally named my baby Ravioli. Justin is Italian so what else was the name supposed to be? In fact, the full name is Ravioli Tortellini Meatball Moldow.”

Is the aim to squeeze in every pasta dish?

The Focus recommends taking the news with a pinch of salt – Bennett’s official Facebook page is named Kait’s Unsafe Space, not Kait Marie. We are awaiting a response from Kaitlin for clarification.

Bennett and Moldow welcomed their child in early April

The Moldows were legally married in March 2020 and only held the wedding reception a year later due to covid restrictions.

Fast forward to December 2021 and Kaitlin unveiled her baby bump on Instagram and their newborn finally arrived around 8 April.

She noted the gruelling 43-hour labour period alongside a photo of her bundle of joy, which will apparently be one of the rare photos of “little ravioli” for privacy reasons.
