    Well, you think Susan is going to say, “NO, you have to stay and rehearse till the cows come home”? Of course she would be understanding..

  • Amy

    Adrian and Adriana……..seriously people? You couldn’t come up with two names or what?

  • Moore

    Amy, I thought the same thing cause, really, could you not have come up with individual names? Yes, they are twins but more than that they are two separate people.

  • Nicole

    There was a reporting error by People – the baby’s name is actually ARIANA, no d in there!

  • Amy

    Well I guess that’s a little better, but still very close. Oh well, when I have kids, I’m sure I will get criticized by somebody about the names I pick.
