The couple posted a silly message, but revealed their very different name choice for their second daughter.
Dax, 39, took to Twitter to announce, “Delta Bell Shepard is here. She doesn’t look like either Kristen or me, but we’re gonna keep her anyway”.
Delta is a second child for the couple, joining 21-month-old big sister Lincoln.
Kristen, 34, also announced her happy news, tweeting, “The estrogen has now hit critical mass! Good luck, Dax. And welcome to the world DELTA BELL SHEPARD.”
The Parenthood star had only yesterday joked that she might be going into early labor. She wrote, “Crying in the car to @joshgroban christmas songs has got to be an early sign of labor, right?”
Apparently it was!
Delta is an unusual choice, but reminds us of Delta Burke (Suzanne Sugarbaker) in CBS’ Designing Women series. Or Delta airline?
The Greek name Delta actually means “mouth of a river”.
Kristen and Dax had earlier talked of their delight at finding the perfect name for their second child. In September, she stated, “We’ve settled on one, thankfully. It’s a lot of pressure, especially because we felt Lincoln was so perfect.”
Congrats to the couple on their bundle of joy!
