Nikki Mudarris & LiAngelo Ball reveal son’s name at baby shower, and it is an adorable one, that yes, starts with “L”!


As the former Love and Hip Hop Hollywood star shared her son’s name with the world, she posted a message to her him on Instagram, letting him know that the world is waiting to meet him!

“LaVelo, we can’t wait to meet you. You’re so loved.”

LiAngelo seems to be keeping with the family tradition of naming sons with names that start with “L”. His NBA brothers, guards Lonzo and LaMelo, start with the letter “L”. His father, LaVar Ball, obviously also begins with the letter “L”. Even his uncles all have “L”‘s at the beginning of their names: LaFrance, LaValle, LaRenzo, and LaShon.

The pair broke the news of their pregnancy in April 2023 in an exclusive interview with People Magazine.

“We’re both so excited about becoming parents, we spoke about having a life and kids when we first met, our goals, dreams, life we wanted & then it really happened,” the couple shared in their interview. 

They added, “We can’t wait to meet our baby and begin this new chapter together. It’s super exciting for us both being first-time parents and getting to experience everything together.”

The pair met while hiking. In actuality, it was Mudarris’ dogs who helped facilitate introductions.

“We actually met at Runyon Canyon with our dogs hiking,” Mudarris exclusively told OK! in an interview. “My two little Pomeranians tried to go up to his Rottweiler and his Cane Corso at the time, and I’m thinking ‘Oh no, my dogs are never going to win this fight. We just started talking like that, and then we exchanged numbers, then we started hanging, and now we’re having a kid.”

We know that we are not alone when we say we cannot wait to meet LaVelo! Mudarris is due sometime this summer, so we don’t have very long to wait.
