A MUM confessed she thought the name she picked out for her newborn was pretty normal.
But fitness influencer Ashy Bines has left fans confused after revealing she's called her baby girl Tala.
The blogger announced her newborn's name on Instagram, alongside a picture of her daughter in a white romper, writing: "TALA".
In comments on the post, numerous people were quick to ask Ashy how to pronounce the moniker – apparently confused as to whether it was "Tala" like "Nala" or like "Taylor".
"Congratulations. How do you pronounce her name?" one wrote.
“Pronounced like LALA or NALA but TALA (for those asking),” Ashy responded.
