Best name origin story ever!
Busy Philipps and her hubby Marc Silverstein had a bit of an inkling what name they wanted to give to their second daughter.
After all - they did a pretty awesome job with their first daughter's name which is Birdie, age 5.
But the Cougar Town actress admits that they waited too long because when their second baby popped, they had no idea what her name would be!
"Oh my God, it was so hard because we had all these names and then she came out. I looked at her and she just couldn’t be one of those names."
So the couple took home their baby WITHOUT naming her, and got away with a week of a no named baby before the hospital came a calling.
"I got a call from Cedars and they said, 'You have to come back and name your baby.'"
Luckily her husband, who is a screenwriter, asked his wife what she thought of the name Cricket Pearl, and everything became clear for Busy!
“A lot of times your name dictates the kind of personality you have and [Marc's] like, ‘Everyone likes Cricket, Cricket is just the greatest, happiest kid on the block, the coolest camp counselor, she’s hot in college,’He just had this whole narrative for what that name was.”
We can dig it!
And how is life going for her other daughter Birdie now that there are little girls in the house?
“That first month was really tricky because I think she was expecting the baby to come out and be more interesting. Once the baby really started smiling and connecting with Birdie, [she was] able to be a little more playful with her.”
Aww! That sounds amazing!
We can't wait to see dem pictures of your two lovely girls!
