“That’s what we wanted to do with Leo.
“I feel with a lot of people when they’ve had a child, they name them after their grandparents or parents that they might have lost.
“It’s a natural thing to do but these trolls thought it was me trying to get attention.”
He added: “I think we give trolls, I do especially, too much of a spotlight.
“I’m just going to try and stop doing that.”
What else did Jake say?
Jake concluded: “I don’t understand why somebody would hate on, not only a newborn baby but also somebody they’ve never met.
“It just doesn’t make sense to me. It is really upsetting but we’ve tried to not let it tarnish the moment because I haven’t stopped smiling.
It’s a natural thing to do but these trolls thought it was me trying to get attention.
