What’s behind Maggie Gyllenhaal’s baby name pick? G-L-O-R-I-A Ray’s rocking moniker was explained during the Hysteria star’s Tuesday night appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
“We thought of her name when we were at this concert that Patti Smith played at . . . she played [a cover of Van Morrison's] ‘Gloria,’” Maggie Gyllenhaal explained. “It was a couple of years ago and we just thought, maybe we’ll name our daughter that one day.”
The lovely name of Gloria Ray, born April 19, was almost ruined shortly after the couple had filled out her birth certificate, however!
Maggie Gyllenhall went on to say, “My husband played me The Doors’ version of ‘Gloria’ two days after my daughter was born, and it was so dirty, I couldn’t handle it. It was like a super, super dirty version.”
