Chris Lane and wife Lauren Bushnell welcomed their first child on June 8, announcing the happy news on social media last week. The couple shared that their son's name is Dutton Walker Lane, and according to the new dad, the moniker was inspired by the hit show Yellowstone.
"You can take one guess where we got that from, is from the TV show Yellowstone," Lane told PopCulture.com and other media in April of the name Dutton. "And we really love the name a lot." He added, "I know it's a little different, but I think it's pretty cool." Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, who own the largest ranch in the United States and have their fair share of family drama. There's also a character named Walker on the show, though Lane didn't specify whether his son's middle name was also inspired by the Paramount Network series.

The 36-year-old had previously joked that his wife shot down his initial baby name suggestion of Rambo. "I was halfway joking, halfway serious and Lauren shut me down really fast," the "Fill Them Boots" singer recalled.
"But I thought it was kind of cool," he said. "I wanted to name him Rambo and Lauren shot me down really fast." Lane explained that he "thought it actually was like a tough name. I'm like, 'What can I name him that stands out and is tough?' And I feel like coming up to bat, Rambo Lane, I mean, how could he not drop bombs, you know what I mean? Now teeing off on the first tee box, Rambo Lane, how does that not stick out in a cool way? But yeah, shut down so hard."
