FEED founder and all-around do-gooder Lauren Bush is probably one of the nicest famous people in America, so it makes us feel just a teeny tiny bit bad (notice it doesn't stop us) when we giggle about how, after marrying son-of-Ralph David Lauren, her married name might just wind up being Lauren Lauren.
Bush puts our tee-hee-ing and speculation to rest in an interview in the new Harper's Bazaar. She says:
"Out of all the people I could've met and fallen in love with," says a laughing Bush, now 26, of her husband-to-be, "it's just ironic that David would end up with someone named Lauren."· Lauren Bush: An American Princess [Harper's Bazaar]
The only uncertainty surrounding their marriage arose when it came to the question of her future moniker. "I think it will be Lauren Bush-Lauren. That's not final, but I think it's nice to have the same name as your husband. I am sort of old-fashioned in that way."
