Bellamy Nicole Novogratz, age 12

Although Tallulah was technically the Novogratz’s first choice for a daughter’s name (having already been on the table if Wolfie had been a girl), when first fraternal twin Bellamy was born, “she just looked more like a Bellamy,” said Cortney.

Bellamy means “beautiful friend” in French (belle amie). “France is one of our favorite countries,” said Cortney. “We went there on our honeymoon and go there every couple of years. Plus, we just love the name.

“Her godmother helped us come up with it,” she added. “We were sitting around drinking lots of wine, thinking of something that would complement Talllulah if both twins were girls and Bellamy came up.”

Bellamy’s middle name Nicole is in honor of Cortney’s sister, who passed away when she was younger.
