Cougar Town star Busy Phillips showed off her adorable baby girl, Cricket, while running errands in West Hollywood on Thursday.
For the outing, the 34-year-old wore a psychedelic '60s-style mini dress, leather jacket, black tights and ankle boots tassels. The blonde star also carried her precious six-month-old cargo, who was outfitted in a gray polka dot shirt and pants.
Recently, the former Dawson's Creek star explained how her daughter's unusual name came about. After Busy and husband Marc Silverstein found out they were having a girl, they tried to come up with a name for their unborn daughter but couldn't decide on one. The actress told people, “Oh my God, it was so hard because we had all these names and then she came out. I looked at her and she just couldn’t be one of those names."
Despite having no name for their newborn, the parents, who also have five-year-old daughter Birdie Leigh, took home their bundle of joy. However after a week with no name, the hospital came aknockin' for the name of Baby Girl Silverstein.
“I got a call from Cedars and they said, ‘You have to come back and name your baby,’” Philipps told the mag.
Luckily, her hubby, a screenwriter, is full of ideas. “He’s always coming up with character names for his movies and TV shows,” Busy said.
Busy's main man then suggested the name of "Cricket Pearl."
“A lot of times your name dictates the kind of personality you have and [Marc's] like, ‘Everyone likes Cricket, Cricket is just the greatest, happiest kid on the block, the coolest camp counselor, she’s hot in college,’” Philipps explains. “He just had this whole narrative for what that name was.”
So apparently that's how Cricket Pearl became Cricket Pearl!
