Amber Tamblyn Is All About Girl Power as She Announces Daughter's Birth
It's a girl for Amber Tamblyn and David Cross! The 33-year-old actress announced the birth of the couple's first child on Instagram today in typically witty form, with an adorable video, a perplexing "name," and a hashtag that's completely in character for this fiercely feminist new mama.
"David and I are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey jr," Tamblyn captioned a super-cute clip of her new baby's teeny-tiny foot popping out of a pink blanket. She added: "#TheFutureIsFemale." (YASSSS!)
It just doesn't get better than baby toes, does it? According to USA Today, the overly lengthy moniker is fake (as you might have suspected), but it honestly would have been sort of awesome if it had turned out to be legit -- or at least parts of it. Okay, basically what we're saying is it would have been pretty cool if Tamblyn and Cross really did name their baby girl after Ruth Bader Ginsburg. (Or Mustard Witch.)
It wouldn't even be that surprising, when you think about it: Tamblyn announced her pregnancy in a powerful essay for Glamour about motherhood, feminism, and politics. She spoke out against Donald Trump's misogynistic "p*ssy-grabbing" comments by sharing an honest and harrowing account of her own sexual assault. She participated in January's Women's March on Washington even though she was just weeks away from giving birth.
In short, Amber Tamblyn is badass -- and her daughter is so incredibly lucky to have a mom who's sure to raise her to believe that she can do and be anything, and that her voice deserves to be heard. #TheFutureIsFemale, indeed!
