Brooklyn Decker: I was named after horse

Brooklyn Decker has revealed she was "named after a horse".

The actress explained that her parents didn't find inspiration for her name in a baby book, but somewhat closer to home.

She said it was her father who had the idea to call her by a more formal version of a family friend's steed.

"I'm named after a horse. My mom's best friend had a horse named Brooke, so my dad suggested 'Brooklyn' as a more formal version, and it just stuck-and now I live in Brooklyn part-time, so go figure," she told Vanity Fair.

Brooklyn is currently promoting her new movie What to Expect When You're Expecting.

Married to tennis ace Andy Roddick, the 25-year-old spoke about her own plans for motherhood.

While the former cover star has turned her back on modelling for now, she wants to juggle a career in movies with raising children.

"I think that I'd like to try to be a superwoman and have kids and work, so we'll see if I can actually accomplish that. But, if we're talking dream scenario, that would probably be it," she said.
