The funny actress welcomed her second daughter on July 2, but waited until July 10 to announce the bundle of joy. Joining 4-year-old sister Birdie Leigh is — drumroll, please — Cricket Pearl! Do you like the name?
Busy Philipps, 34, definitely doesn’t look at the “Most Popular Names” list when thinking about what to name her children. She uniquely named her first daughter Birdie, 4, in 2008, and she has kept the unusual names going, naming her newborn daughter Cricket. Are these names adorably original or too wacky?
Busy Philipps Names Second Daughter Cricket Pearl
Busy and hubby Marc Silverstein welcomed Cricket into the world on July 2. She announced the news on Twitter on July 3, with a black-and-white picture of her holding her new bundle of joy, captioned “So this happened…”
Cricket joins big sister Birdie, and now both of them can share the unique quality of having animal or insect-themed names — or perhaps outdoor garden games?
Whatever the theme, we’d be interested in seeing if Busy kept it up with her future children. Bunny? Butterfly? The options are endless.
Busy Philipps: Will Her Kids Need Therapy Because Of Their Names?
Celebrities that have famously given their children strange names typically receive backlash for the unusual monikers, and Busy isn’t any exception. She took to Twitter on to address the criticism. She tweeted on July 10:
It’s weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names. Guys, my kids will be therapy for LOTS of reasons, I’m sure.
Of course she’s joking, being the funny girl she is, but clearly she doesn’t think her kids will be mocked because of their out-of-the-ordinary names. As odd as they may be, we commend Busy for finding unique names for her children — and standing behind them!
What do you think of the name Cricket, HollyMoms? Is it too cute or too weird?
