Scout and Bill, who are married, began the adoption process last year.
“We are in awe of Simone and thrilled that our dream of becoming parents has finally come true,” the couple tells PEOPLE. “From the moment we saw her we instantly fell in love — she has us wrapped around her little fingers.”
They already have the cutest nickname for her!
“Nugget” or “Nugget of Love,” says Bill. “I sing Sade’s ‘Soldier of Love’ to her and replace the word ‘soldier’ with ‘nugget.’ Yup — she’s already embarrassed by me.”
The pair chose the name Simone out of a baby book under ‘Activist Names.’ “We liked that the name denotes a strong woman. Plus we love Nina Simone.”
Too cute! Congrats! We wish them a happy first Father’s Day this weekend!
