Keri Russell shares how River got his name


Earlier this year, actress Keri Russell, 31, and her husband Shane Deary were eagerly awaiting the arrival of their baby, whose sex they were keeping a delivery surprise. They did have names picked out, but in the end, didn’t use what they had planned on.

We had another one picked out. Then when he was born, he was so calm and realized that ‘River’ just worked.

River Russell Deary arrived on June 9th.
