Busy Phillips Baby #2 Born — ‘Cougar Town’ Star Gives Birth
“Everyone is healthy and happy,” Busy’s rep tells PEOPLE, while confirming the news. Plus, the baby girl weighed in at 8.5 lbs.
“So this happened…” Busy tweeted on July 3, as she shared a black and white photo of herself cuddling her newborn (as seen above). So sweet!
The new baby joins Busy’s other daughter, Birdie Leigh, 4½.
Busy Phillips Announced Pregnancy In Creative Way
Busy announced her pregnancy in December by posting a pic of her positive pregnancy test on Twitter. She later said that her daughter, Birdie, was super excited to be a big sister.
“My daughter is super excited,” the actress told Huffington Post in April. “She’s actually incredibly helpful and … she’s really understanding things, when I say like, ‘Mom can’t carry you right now because the baby in her tummy is pressing down on her bladder!’ She understands what that means and she’s cool with it.”
Busy: I Became A Celebrity Because I Had A Kid
The actress, who is famous for her roles in Dawson’s Creek, Freaks and Geeks and ER, has joked in the past that being a mommy has given her more celebrity cred.
“I only became a celebrity because I had a kid. Before I was pregnant nobody cared,” the actress told Babble.
“My husband has a theory that celebrity gossip feels so seedy, but if you can put a positive spin on it, like touting a new baby, then people somehow feel it’s okay. I joke to my agent that having a baby made my career,” she added.
We’re pretty sure she’s being humble. We think Busy’s acting put her on the map.
Congratulations to the happy parents!
