‘American Idol’ Alum Gina Glocksen’s New Baby’s Name Is ‘Game of Thrones’-Inspired [PHOTOS]

Congratulations to ‘American Idol‘ alum Gina Glocksen — the singer and her husband, Joe Ruzica, recently welcomed a baby girl. And they even took her name straight from a ‘Game of Thrones’ character!

Glocksen, who competed on ‘Idol’s’ sixth season, gave birth to Daenerys Josephine on July 10 in Chicago, People reports. Though Glocksen didn’t explicitly say that she named her baby after Daenerys Targaryen from ‘GoT,’ it’s safe to say that it’s more than just a coincidence — especially since Jordin Sparks gifted the new baby girl a dragon stuffed animal.

“Dany being protected by her dragon hole [as] she sleeps!” Glocksen captioned the sweet pic, which you can check out below. “Thanks for my nighttime security auntie Jordin!”

Little Daenerys entered the world at 8 lbs., 4 oz., and already the proud parents are happily in love — just see the photo of the adorable family unit in the picture above.


PopCrushers, what do you think of Gina Glocksen’s ‘Game of Thrones’-inspired name for her baby girl?
