Baby born in Australia, named Aussie


A baby boy named Aussie Trooper was born in Australia several weeks ago to patriotic parents Ben Kenna and Adele Plane.

The baby’s first name is (of course) a tribute to Australia. His middle name comes from the Iron Maiden song “The Trooper,” though his mother adds:

Trooper has two meanings really – for Ben it’s about Iron Maiden, but for me it’s about it being a harsh world and Aussie’s going to have to be a trooper.

Aussie Trooper has three older siblings: Lucy, Travis and Ava.
