Cougar Town's Busy Philipps, 34, welcomed her second daughter last week, and we've learned the name today. Busy also has a 4.5-year-old daughter named Birdie Leigh (above), so we expected a good name for this new baby -- and a good one we got!


And the name is (drumroll).... Cricket Pearl.

Cricket Pearl is now one of a bunch of new Hollywood babies with unusual names: North West, of course, Ace Knute Johnson, Everly Tatum, to name a few.

Know any Crickets? Well, there's Cricket from The Young and the Restless; there's the Cricket talking doll (which apparently freaked out all my colleagues when they were young).... Any others?
