Nope, this isn’t an April Fools’ Day joke.
J.L. and Jackie Redd of Alabama, inspired in part by their surname, decided to name their baby boy Crimson Tide Redd in honor of the University of Alabama’s Crimson Tide football team.
J.L.’s family was “extremely excited” about the name, but Jackie’s family “couldn’t understand why we’d name our child after a football team.”
Little Crimson will go by the nickname Ty.
