Busy Philipps - Busy Philipps Defends Daughter's Unusual Name

The Cougar Town star gave birth on 2 July (13) to her second daughter, who joins elder sister Birdie Leigh, and on Wednesday (10Jul13) her representative announced the tot has been given the unusual name Cricket Pearl.

Philipps, whose real first name is Elizabeth, later took to her Twitter.com page to respond to those criticising her little girls' strange monikers.

She tweeted, "It's weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names. Guys, my kids will be (in) therapy for lots of reasons, I'm sure."

The 34 year old also thanked the supporters who sent positive messages, adding, "Thank you all for the warm wishes for our new little ladybug! It's been so sweet to read them all!"

Cricket and Birdie are Philipps' daughters with her husband Marc Silverstein.
