Delightful couple of delight Amber Tamblyn and David Cross have had their baby, a daughter. Her name, you ask? Well you deserve the answer you get, friends.
“Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey jr.” which as Michael K. at Dlisted points out are all absolutely names straight from Amber’s bestie Blake Lively’s Secret board.
Tamblyn first announced they were expecting in an essay she wrote for Glamour.
I’ve been thinking about motherhood a lot lately. What it means to be one, what it means to have one, what it means to know one, what it means to make decisions as one and have conversations as one. I am very lucky to be surrounded by strong mothers, from my own mom to some of my best friends—those who are raising young women to accept themselves and those who are raising young men to accept women.
Motherhood has been heavily on my mind because I am going to be a mother soon. I’m pregnant, with a daughter on the way. I think constantly about the world I am bringing her into. Will I get a phone call from my daughter someday, one she never wanted to make? Will I have to share with her my story, and the story of her great-grandmother’s words to her grandmother? Is it possible to protect her from inheriting this pain? How much do I have to do, as a daughter and a soon-to-be mother, to change not just the conversation about how women are seen, but the language with which conversations are spoken in?
Whatever her name, Babyfriend Cross Tamblyn will be incredible. If you have never “gotten” these two, take a listen to them on Margaret Cho’s podcast. They’re adorable.
