Tom Arnold has made a fortune in his life by being funny!
Which is why we were not surprised to learn of the hilarious backstory of how he and his wife landed upon the name Jax for their recent newborn baby boy.
It's definitely a knee slapper!
Here's what he said:
"My dad's name is Jack and I wanted to honour him, but not too much. I am a fan of and worked on Sons of Anarchy and my favourite character's name is Jax. We just thought it was a cool name. Of course I called Kurt Sutter, the show creator, to get his blessing. I'm best friends with Dax Shepard so that was also in the back of my head, too. We almost named him Jaxson, but the night before the birth I found out one of my brothers had named his mangy dog Jaxson. Obviously that made a change absolutely necessary!"
Best origin story of a kid's name ever!
It's pretty intricate, though.
We hope he remembers ALL the details, so he can share its amazingness with his son when he grows up!
It's THAT good!
