Busy Phillips must really be a Pinocchio fan (or an It’s Alway Sunny In Philadelphia fan), because E! says that she and her husband Marc Silverstein named their 8-day-old daughter…


I really have no idea what a cricket’s WTF face looks like, but I’m pretty sure it looks something like this:


Busy and Marc’s other daughter is 4 years old and her name is Birdie. Birdie and Cricket! I guess they really love things that chirp and if Busy ever pops out a third kid, they’re totally naming it Sparrow or Batteryless Smoke Detector. Birdie and Cricket sound like the name of the most popular southern girls at the country club who both have white blond hair, only wear pastels (pastel pink is Birdie’s signature color, pastel yellow is Cricket’s signature color) and drive matching BMW convertibles. Birdie and Cricket are going to be named co-prom queens at the Sweet Valley High prom two years in a row, rule their college sorority, marry doctors and sell Avon on the side just for fun. I totally want to buy Skin-So-Soft from Birdie and Cricket.

When people started giving Busy shit for naming her daughter after a bug, she said this on Twitter:

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.

Speaking of needing therapy, the name Cricket made me think of this:

That’s okay, I didn’t need to sleep tonight anyway.
