Opening up on the reason behind the names, Nicolas shared how his own father August would blast out The Beatles’ Let It Be album.
He especially loved the son Across The Universe and would play it at his radio station, which left Nicolas “frozen, paralysed” upon first hearing it.
He added that it is his “favourite song ever written”.
Nicolas said: “Because of Across The Universe, her name is gonna be Lennon Augie, Augie after my father.”
Speaking on having a baby girl, he added: “I’m thrilled. It’s going to be the biggest adventure of my life”.
