Today host Allison Langdon reveals the sweet reason why she named her daughter Scout

As any parent will tell you, choosing a name for your child can be very difficult. 

But for Today show host Allison Langdon, there was never any doubt that she would name her daughter Scout. 

She revealed this week that the inspiration for her one-year-old daughter’s name came from the character Scout Finch in the classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird.

‘My favourite book is To Kill a Mockingbird and I just love the character of Scout,’ Allison told Essential Baby.

‘I’ve always loved the name Scout so when our own daughter came along, I knew what name I wanted.’

The 41-year-old journalist revealed that she loved the ‘headstrong’ character for her ‘sense of justice’.

‘The name perfectly suits our Scout… she’s maybe a little too much like the book’s character though!’ Allison added.

Allison and her husband, Michael Willesee Jnr., welcomed their second child, Scout, in March 2019. 

The couple also share a three year old son, Mack.

Speaking to 9Honey last year, Allison admitted that her approach to motherhood was very different the second time round. 

‘I’m such a different parent this time, I’m so much more relaxed – I think I’ve got it this time,’ she said.

She admitted that when she fell pregnant for the first time she wasn’t ‘naturally maternal’.

‘Because it didn’t come to me naturally I thought, “That’s okay, like everything else I can just learn it. If I read enough books, I’d be awesome at it,”‘ she explained.
