Actress Amber Tamblyn gave birth to her first child on Tuesday. The first-time mom shared the exciting news on social media.
Amber Tamblyn and her husband, comedy actor David Cross, welcomed their first baby, a girl named Dauphinoise. On Tuesday, February 21, the proud mommy posted a video on Instagram, announcing the arrival of her bundle of joy. “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. #TheFutureIsFemale”, she captioned the video.
33-year-old Tamblyn, who is mostly known for her roles on The Sisterhood of The Travelling Pants and the medical drama Dr. House, announced she was expecting in October, through an essay she published on Glamour. The essay, titled “The Frame That Holds the Big Picture: How Mothers and Daughters Can Change the Way We Talk About Being Women”, talks about Tamblyn’s inheritance of the frame of mind her mother and her grandmother shared through generations when it came to men. “Boys will be boys. You just have to be really careful around them”, her grandmother told her mother when she shared an abuse story. It turned out that both women had stories to tell and grew up with the idea that they have to “be really careful” around men. Tamblyn concluded the piece by saying she hoped for a future where her daughter “will someday say, “Donald who?” and think nothing is revolutionary about a woman becoming President”.
Tamblyn married Cross, 52, in October 2012. They became engaged in August 2011, after dating for two years.
Baby Dauphinoise is the first child for both Tamblyn and Cross.
