Busy Philipps recently announced that she’s expecting a second daughter. On Thursday, the Cougar Town actress took to Twitter to talk possible baby names. Will she name her baby after a superstar?
She shared on Twitter that she got a few unique baby name suggestions while running errands.
“The guys at the post office just suggested I name my baby Rihanna or Aaliyah so apparently, I'm giving birth to an R&B superstar,” the 33-year-old joked.
Although those names probably aren’t among her top picks, she admitted she did like the suggestions.
She added, “Is it weird that now I think Riri Silverstein is kind of cute?”
Philipps, who is married to screenwriter Marc Silverstein, probably hadn’t previously considered Rihanna or Aaliyah, but she says she honestly did consider a name with a lot of power.
“Not a joke, in a hormone induced haze, I actually DID try to sell my husband on naming the baby Oprah,” she admitted. “Because I love her so much.”
Busy Philipps is already mother to 4-year-old daughter Birdie. According to People, in a 2010 interview, she explained that Birdie’s name was inspired by Lady Bird Johnson.
“My husband said, ‘Wow, what a cool woman and what an amazing name...it would be so cool to name a kid after her,’" she said, adding that she didn't decide on the name until the birth. "When she came out I said, ‘I think we gotta go with Birdie, I think that’s her name.’”
