Actress Busy Philipps and her husband Marc Silverstein are the latest celebs to choose a unique name for their baby.
On Thursday, they announced that they will call their newborn daughter “Birdie.” (Birdie Leigh Silverstein was born Wednesday, weighing in at 9 lbs., 7 oz., according to E! News. Busy is godmother to Michelle Williams’ two-year-old daughter, Matilda.)
Lately, a lot of celebrity parents have been bestowing out-of-the-ordinary names upon their children.
General Hospital star Ingo Rademacher named his newborn son “Peanut.”
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban settled on “Sunday.”
Jessica Alba went with “Honor” for her little girl.
Chris Martin – father to “Apple” and “Moses” with wife Gwyneth Paltrow – defended odd baby names.
“There’s nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that’s what you want to call your baby,” he said. “It’s no stranger than Sarah. A name is just a noise, and if you like it, then f–k what everyone else says.”
Busy and Birdie sound really cute together!
