Chili Pepper talks fatherhood

Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis spoke publicly for the first time this weekend about being a dad to new son Everly Bear. "We had a long list of names, but I suppose it came to me by way of the Everly Brothers, which is one of my favorite bands," Kiedis said at a fundraiser for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in LA on Saturday night. "And sometimes last names made good first names. Kiedis's girlfriend Heather Christie came up with the rest. "The mama came up with Bear," Kiedis says. "That made sense to me because he's from me and I feel like I'm part of the bear clan, and I think it's nice to have a little bit of earth in your name." Kiedis and Christie welcomed their first child on October 2. "Being a father is different, it's much different," Kiedis says. "I sleep when I can, but he's letting me off pretty easy so far. He's a very calm and peaceful kid."
