“We just threw a bunch of letters together,” Scarlett shared. “I just really thought it was charming and our friends liked it.”

While Scarlett and Colin‘s, 40, friends liked the unique name, Colin‘s mom wasn’t a big fan of it.

“Colin’s mom had a little bit of a harder time with it,” Scarlett explained. “She kept suggesting other versions of it for a while. I was like, ‘He’s already here. He’s out. Like, it’s past that time.”

Kelly then noted the floral connection of Cosmo and his 8-year-old sister Rose‘s name.

“Cosmo is a really sweet little flower that comes in different shades of orange and yellow and stuff like that,” Scarlett added. “That’s why my daughter liked it too.”

In an interview from earlier this year, Scarlett revealed the one thing she hopes her kids never find out about her past.
