Busy Phillips has given birth to her second baby girl on July 2, although she has not released a name. The “Cougar Town” actress already a mom to 4-year-old Birdie Leigh and is excited to have two daughters in her new growing family.
“So this happened …” Philipps, 34, tweeted Wednesday, along with a black-and-white photo of her holding the newborn.
Those were the same words Philipps used to announce her pregnancy on Twitter in December, at that time posting a photo of her positive pregnancy test.
The former “Dawson’s Creek” star first revealed on the red carpet in April that she and husband Marc Silverstein were expecting another girl.
“We’ve known for a long time now. I just haven’t had any reason to say it, but we’re having another girl,” Philipps told the Huffington Post at the premiere of her film “A Case of You.”
The couple have not yet released a name for the new baby, who weighed in at 8.5 pounds.
At the same premiere in April where Philipps revealed the baby’s sex, she also revealed that the baby’s big sister, Birdie, was “superexcited” about the news.
“She’s actually incredibly helpful and she’s 4 1/2, so 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,” the actress said.
“But 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.”
