Jax Taylor Gets Monkey Namesake At Columbus Zoo

Jax Taylor has had a busy year. From the loss of his father back in December to his engagement to Brittany Cartwright recently, the Vanderpump Rules star has been doing a lot of soul-searching. Things have started to come together for Taylor, something many fans didn't see happening anytime soon.

Yesterday, Jax Taylor got a surprise from the Columbus Zoo. According to Us Weekly, the zoo announced that the latest baby monkey born is named Jax Taylor. They confirmed the little guy was named after the Vanderpump Rules star in the official announcement made on Instagram. Taylor was excited when he found out, offering to help with anything the baby monkey may need, and promising a visit to the zoo in the future.

Brittany Cartwright also chimed in on social media to mention how cute Jax Taylor the monkey is. Fellow Vanderpump Rules star, Tom Schwartz also was included in sharing the news. His friendship with Jax Taylor has been highlighted on the show as he is the most forgiving and defensive of the things his friend does whether they are right or wrong. This news was definitely something exciting for both the reality show and Taylor himself.

Even though the name of the baby monkey was just revealed yesterday, Vanderpump Rules fans are hoping that a trip to the zoo can be woven into the show. Jax Taylor already mentioned he wanted to make a visit, and Season 7 is currently filming. A monkey namesake is definitely a different way to express being a fan, but apparently, someone at the Columbus zoo has seen an episode or two of the popular Bravo reality show.
