According to The New York Post, the name of Ricki Lander’s baby girl is Monarch, likely inspired by the butterfly, not the head of state. Lander, the girlfriend of Patriots owner Robert Kraft, posted a photo of her little girl on Instagram on Mother’s Day, writing: “This year has been overflowing with love, light and blessings. A beautiful little angel came into our lives. She has brought more love and joy than I ever could have imagined. I love you so much little one. . . . Thank you for choosing me as your mommy! #mothersday.” Kraft, who’s nearly 40 years older than Lander, has said he is not the baby’s father. Monarch is not a common name, ranking 18,353rd on a list of popular baby names in 2017. In case you’re wondering, the five most popular names for newborn girls last year were Emma, Olivia, Ava, Isabella, and Sophia.
