Hayden appeared on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family along with Kate Bosworth, to talk about their new movie, 90 Minutes in Heaven, and also opened up about the origin of his daughter’s unique name.

Hayden said that Rachel is such a big Disney fan, and was the main reason Briar's name came to be.

"We both love all things Disney, but Rachel especially was very keen on the name," said Hayden.

Rachel and Hayden have been dating since 2007, and had their first child together in late 2014.
