Ashley Tisdale and Christopher French welcomed daughter Jupiter Iris

We were just guessing when Ashley Tisdale was due and guess what, it really was ‘any day now’. Ashley and her husband Christopher French welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Jupiter Iris French, on Tuesday. Ashely posted the happy news to Instagram yesterday with the photo above of adult hands and little baby fingers. Her caption read, “Jupiter Iris French arrived earthside 3.22.21”.

Ashley Tisdale’s bundle of joy has arrived!

The High School Musical alum, 35, and husband Christopher French, 39, welcomed their first baby together, daughter Jupiter Iris French, on Tuesday, March 23, she announced on Instagram Wednesday. The couple tied the knot in 2014.

Tisdale shared a black-and-white photo holding her newborn’s hand, writing that Jupiter has “arrived earth side.”

Tisdale revealed her happy pregnancy news back in September, and later shared the sex of the baby on the way a month later. “I cried I was so happy,” she wrote on Instagram at the time of finding out she would soon have a daughter.

Oof! I love baby appendages. I don’t know why that is. I can usually keep it together when I’m around babies but then I catch sight of their hands or feet, and I start cooing like a crazy person. Anyway, the important thing is that Jupiter is here, and it sounds like everyone is healthy. The name is interesting. I don’t enough about Ashley to know if this sounds like a name she would pick or not. Had her costar Vanessa Hudgens named her daughter Jupiter Iris, I wouldn’t have blinked. I’m sure Ashley will be asked why she chose the name so we’ll hear where it came from soon enough. Jupiter and Iris are both beautiful words on their own. And Jupiter carries a lot of power, both being the largest planet and the most powerful of the Roman gods. When I hear the word Iris, the first image my mind forms is always of Vincent van Gogh’s paintings so for me, the name is a nice balance of power and beauty. But Jupiter is a mouthful when used regularly. I wonder if they’ve already come up with some nicknames. Jupe? I had an extra minute, so I ran Jupiter through Google translate and in many languages, it translates to a variation of Jupiter (although in Italian it’s Giove). But the Latin word for Jupiter is Lovi – that would be a darling nickname.

We’re thrilled that Jupiter has arrived and that everyone is doing well. I can’t wait to hear about Ashley’s journey as a mom, should she choose to share it. She’s brought to light some lesser discussed topics during her pregnancy that I found quite interesting. Of course her priority right now is her daughter and herself, as it should be. Congratulations to the Tisdale French family (including their pups Ziggy Stardust and Sushi Sue)!

    I bet she wanted a name unique because in high school I had 14 different Ashley’s that were all good friends. It was literally every other girls name and she probably wants something less common for her daughter? I personally love the name Ashley. I also might have switched the names to Iris Jupiter because Jupiter is a lot.

    • Jess says:

      Came to say this, I’m Jessica and know about 17 other Jessica’s, and I do love my name but I chose something a little more unique for my daughter.

    Interesting name. I feel like Juniper Iris would have flowed as well.

  3. Anna says:

    Sorry for being a know-it-all… Lovi is not the “Latin word for Jupiter”. Jupiter IS Latin.
    Jupiter (the God father, “Zeus” in Greek”) is also known as “Jove”. Jovi is just the Dativ case.
    Full declination: Jupiter (or Jove), Jovis, Jovi, Jovem, Jove.

    Technically, both Jupiter and Jove are written with an “I” in Latin, so the correct spelling would be Iupiter/Iove.

    • saltyCracker says:

      Hehe, kind of funny. brings to mind the famous latin saying ‘quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi’. Which, when you are a Hollywood star, kind of applies here too. What with the name and all. maybe I’m reaching.
      Love Iris. It feels like such a feminine name. Just delicate and beautiful.

  4. Tiffany says:

    I’m so happy for her. Ashley was always my favorite out of the HSM crew.

    Also, Candace Flynn FOR EVA !!!!

  5. Case says:

    I honestly love the name Jupiter! It’s so cool. But I like all things spacey.

    Side note: I was shocked to learn Ashley is 35. I would’ve guessed 29 or 30.

  6. Caroline says:

    I’m sorry to the such a Petty Betty, but is anyone else tired of the “joined us earth side”? I don’t know why it bothers me so much, it’s such a trivial thing.

    • Ameara says:

      I was literally thinking the same. It’s such a small thing but it really annoys me. It’s irrational.

    • Case says:

      People seemingly just started using it a ton in the last few months and I find it so strange. I’m like “but the baby was on Earth in your womb too.” LOL

    • schmootc says:

      First time I’ve heard it, but I’ll give it an eye roll. I’m just not a baby person at all though, so most baby stuff gets that response from me. It’s gotten better in the last decade or so, and God knows my family doesn’t say a word, but historically, if you don’t reproduce, society’s message is that you don’t have value and that’s just bullsh*t.

    • Ange says:

      Yeah it bugs me too. The baby was already earth side! It didn’t appear from a different dimension, it was just moved from one earth side location to another.

  7. Katebush says:

    Omg I love that name never heard it for a girls name before but it’s very cool

  8. L4frimaire says:

    I love the name! Jupiter is one of my favorite planets ( Saturn rules). I’ve always loved unusual names.
