Jason Lee & Girlfriend Welcome A Daughter

My Name Is Earl star Jason Lee and girlfriend Ceren Alkac welcomed a daughter on August 10th. The little girl is their first child together.

Jason, 38, revealed that they were expecting a girl during an appearance on the Today show in May.

“I’m looking forward to it,” he said of the baby’s birth. “No name yet.”

Jason and Ceren were spotted picking up a marriage license in June (his rep wouldn’t comment on the report).

Jason also has a four-year-old son, Pilot Inspektor, with his ex-fiancee, actress Beth Riesgraf.

He said they came up with the unusual name after listening to indie band Grandaddy’s 2000 album The Sophtware Slump.

“The opening track, ‘He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot,’ absolutely blew my mind when I first heard it,” Jason told Entertainment Weekly. “It was from this track that my wife, Beth, came up with the name Pilot for our son.”

    Yeah but enough already. It’s not like they named the kid Adolf Hitler (unlike some people). Pilot Inspektor Lee is pretty flaky, but he’s going to go by just Pilot anyway.

    And having grown up with an unusual name myself, I doubt the kid will suffer half the trauma that people seem to anticipate. It’s not like his classmates will know any better and by the time they do, his parents fame will make up for a lot.

    It won’t be a big deal what the kid’s name is if they stay in Hollywood. The only kids that will get laughed are the ones with the normal names.

    Just a thought-
    Maybe because yes it’s their kids but the kids have their own lives and as they grow they may not be happy with something unusual that sticks with them forever.A name is a powerful thing.
