Amber Tamblyn reveals baby daughter's name & tells us why Hillary Clinton got involved

Enthusiastic fan of Jilly Cooper, books, horses and singing. Not a made-up person.

Amber Tamblyn and her Arrested Development star husband, David Cross, have been pretty secretive about the name of their first child together – but now they've revealed it on Instagram in A-list style.

The couple had previously joked about their daughter's name, with Tamblyn calling her "Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey Jr" in an Instagram post.

The real deal came out in the most amazing way on Monday night: in a letter from Hillary Clinton.

I mean, sure – isn't that how your parents did it?

Tambyln had announced her pregnancy last year in an essay for US GLAMOUR, in which she opened up about her experience of sexual assault, and her worries about becoming a mother.

“I’ve been thinking about motherhood a lot lately. What it means to be one, what it means to have one, what it means to know one, what it means to make decisions as one and have conversations as one,” she wrote.

"Will I get a phone call from my daughter someday, one she never wanted to make? Will I have to share with her my story, and the story of her great-grandmother’s words to her grandmother? Is it possible to protect her from inheriting this pain? How much do I have to do, as a daughter and a soon-to-be mother, to change not just the conversation about how women are seen, but the language with which conversations are spoken in?"

She went on to reference Hillary Clinton, and how inspiring she found her as a politician and public figure. It looks as though Clinton was more than happy to return the compliment.
