Michael Shalenko-Jackson

A Russian woman from Novosibirsk region [has decided to name](http://en.rian.ru/russia/20090701/155402377.html) her newborn son after Michael Jackson.

Jackson fan Yevgenia Shalenko, 29, gave birth to a boy on the day of the pop legend’s death.

“My son’s birthday is both the happiest and the saddest day of my life, as the first thing I learned after recovering from labor was that Jackson had died”, Shalenko told.

The woman has already filed a request to register her son as Michael Shalenko-Jackson.
