"I love Florence, I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle," he said. "And I think we conceived our daughter North here, among the masterpieces of the Renaissance. It was our first honeymoon."


In 2012, two days after the rapper and wife Beyoncé welcomed daughter Blue Ivy, he released the single "Glory" as a tribute to their first child. In the track, he raps, "The most beautiful-est thing in this world / Is Daddy's little girl / You don't yet know what swag is / But you was made in Paris / And mama woke up the next day / And shot her album package."

Victoria Beckham

Contrary to popular belief, her and David Beckham's eldest child, son Brooklyn Beckham, was conceived in Copenhagen, not in New York.

"I remember when we were making Jaden–for me, I like things to coalesce at the same time. You know?" Smith said in his speech. "I like things to come together for both of us at the same time…She was like, 'I'm coalescing! I'm coalescing!' and I was like, 'I'm coalescing too!' Things coalesced…In the moment, she sat up and she said, 'Oh my god! I'm pregnant.'"

"You take Jada Pinkett Smith, an obscure town in Mexico and some tequila and you end up with great kids," Smith added."

Nick Lachey

The singer and TV host told People in 2015 that he and wife named their daughter and second child Brooklyn because she was conceived in New York, adding, "Not in Brooklyn, per se, but we felt the Upper West Side didn't have a good ring to it and we wanted to pay an homage to New York."

Dakota Johnson

The Fifty Shades of Grey actress revealed in her 2015 SNL hosting monologue that her dad, Don Johnson, proposed to her mom, Melanie Griffith, after she made her own SNL debut in 1988 and noted, with some innuendo, that she was conceived about nine months later.

Bryce Dallas Howard

The Jurassic World star and daughter of Ron Hoaerd says her middle name is the name of the city where she was conceived.

"The rule was it's wherever we were conceived, it's so disgusting!" she told film critic Peter Travers in 2015. "For me, it was a city, for my sisters, it was a hotel [Carlyle]. My brother, his middle name was Cross after a place we used to live...that was our road where our house was, my dad would make this joke, 'I didn't want to call him, 'Back of the Volvo!'...'No, stop it!'"
