I can literally hear you groan as you read this. I must be the only person in the world, besides Busy, that thinks that is an adorable name.
In fact, I had it on my short list for my daughter but it got shot down. Fast.
There was a Cricket on a soap opera I watched when I was a teenager and home for long, boring summers before I could drive..and I always thought it was a perfect girl name. But apparently no one else in the entertainment world thinks so.
Busy has been busy defending her decision to name her child after a bug. And it makes me like her more for it. I also like her a hellalot because she looks like a normal woman after having a baby. Not a freak-of-nature back to normal in 4 weeks Hollywood stepford mom.
Celebrities are mighty fond of giving their offspring unusual – and often phonetically ugly – monikers, but Cougar Town star Busy Phillips might just have taken the baby biscuit with her latest.
However, the pretty funnywoman, 34, has taken to Twitter to defend her decision to call her new baby daughter, Cricket, and has done so with a certain sense of style. ’It’s weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names. Guys, my kids will be therapy for LOTS of reasons, I’m sure.’
Cricket Silverstein, the newborn daughter of Busy Philipps and husband Marc Silverstein, joins her big sister Birdie, four, who has a pretty and humdrum name in comparison.
