Now, via a post on Instagram, Ik Ogbonna is explaining why he chose that name.
According to him, he wanted his son to have a name that embodies everything excellent. He also shared synonyms for the name including genius, master, winner, etc.
“I got a few emails asking me why I chose Ace for my sons name, While going through names I saw a name with all these and I said to myself instantly … His name is Ace : A person who excels at a particular sport or other activity. Synonyms: expert, master, genius, virtuoso, maestro, professional, adept, master, doyen, champion, star, winner….. excellent, very good, first-rate, first-class, marvellous, wonderful, magnificent, outstanding, superlative, formidable, virtuoso, masterly, expert, champion, fine, consummate, skillful, adept. All I can try to be is a good guide to him and I am sure that won’t be a problem with God by my side and the best mother in the world for my kids @sonialareinaa . Amen”
While Ace is not the most common name, it has become more common for celebrities to give their children unique names from Kim Kardashian’s North West to Beyoncé’s Blue Ivy Carter and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Apple Martin and more.
Ik Ogbonna and Sonia Morales made things official over the weekend by going to the registry to get hitched.
