Oh, I’m so happy Busy Phillips finally gave birth! She’s looked uncomfortable and “ready to pop” for more than a month. Busy and her husband Marc Silverstein welcomed their second child on Tuesday (July 2). They had another daughter! We don’t know this little girl’s name yet, but Busy’s first daughter is named Birdie Leigh, so I’m guessing it will be something along those lines, don’t you? They won’t drop an “Elizabeth” or “Jennifer” on us.
Busy Philipps is now officially one busy mama.
The Cougar Town star, 34, and her screenwriter husband Marc Silverstein welcomed their second daughter on Tuesday, July 2, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
“Everyone is healthy and happy,” the rep tells PEOPLE, adding that baby girl weighed in at 8.5 lbs. The couple has not yet chosen a name.
“So this happened…” Philipps Tweeted Wednesday, sharing a black and white photo of herself cuddling her newborn.
The new addition joins big sister Birdie Leigh, 4½.
Philipps announced her pregnancy in December when she posted a photo of her positive pregnancy test on Twitter. In April, she told The Huffington Post she was having another girl and shared that Birdie was ready — sort of — for her little sister.
“My daughter is super excited,” the actress said. “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.”
But she’s not exactly expecting to make her the full-time nanny anytime soon.
“We’ll see what happens when the actual baby comes,” Philipps added. “I’m planning for that moment like, ‘And when does she go back?’ I know that will happen.”
That’s cute. Well, congrats to Busy and Marc and big sister Birdie. I can’t wait to hear what they name this little girl. Busy also posted this photo on Twitter:
