Troye Sivan’s latest single, “Angel Baby,” is a song dedicated to celebrating queerness and fantasy, but the prideful song isn’t the only “Angel Baby” in Troye’s life. The Australian-born singer is the loving father of a sweet, 4-legged dog, who hilariously almost had the same name as Audacy’s Bubba from The Bubba Show.

“I almost named by dog Bubba,” The 26 year-old told Melanie Taylor and Bubba of the Bubba Show. “I’m Jewish, so we call cute things ‘Bubba’ or ‘Bubby,’ and I kind of loved it as a dog’s name. But it’s nice as a human name as well,” he laughed

“I call him Bubba all the time, I’m like ‘Hey Bubba, how’s it going?!’ But it’s not his name,” Sivan, who ended up naming the playful Pit-mix, Nash shared.
