She said, “I always loved it, and when we found out we were having a baby, Kean loved it too and wasn’t sure if it was actually a name.
But when I was pregnant I looked at it and it means ‘the best’ so it was perfect for us. I love I don’t know anyone else by name! I think sometimes it’s nice to have an unusual name. ‘
Now that Mexx is six months old, Brooke admitted she found the weaning process quite difficult.

She said, “Frankly, I think weaning is quite difficult. Everyone has an opinion about what to feed your baby, and it’s also hard to know what to cook.
“I usually ask friends and advice from others. It is difficult to know whether you are giving enough or correct.
“But we’ll get there, and as he gets older, it’s funny to look at his face when he has something new.”
Brooke also opened her bedtime routine with Mexx, saying, “He’s always been good at sleeping and going to sleep alone.
