The couple named their little boy Phoenix, after the late actor River Phoenix. He also happens to be Joaquin's brother. The deceased Phoenix has always been an influential figure in Joaquin's life. In the actor's reflection he says:
"I feel like in virtually every movie that I made, there was a connection to River in some way. And I think that we've all felt his presence and guidance in our lives in numerous ways."
