Amber Tamblyn & David Cross Welcome Baby Girl With Hilarious Name, ‘Mustard Witch’
Welcome to the world Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey jr. Or so read Amber Tamblyn‘s humorous Instagram post yesterday.
“Mustard Witch” as she is being referred to, is the daughter of actress Amber Tamblyn, 33, and comedian David Cross, 52. Although it is only their first child, the celebrity couple has nearly perfected the art of the birth announcement.
With several references to feminist icons – including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Beyonce – in what is hopefully not the baby’s actual name, Tamblyn also attached #TheFutureIsFemale to the end of her post. It is unclear if the hashtag is also part of the name or not.
In October, Tamblyn announced her pregnancy through an essay she penned for Glamour. In it, Tamblyn discussed what motherhood and feminism mean to her, her mother, and her future daughter.
“I am very lucky to be surrounded by strong mothers,” she writes, “from my own mom to some of my best friends—those who are raising young women to accept themselves and those who are raising young men to accept women.”
Beyond writing about her own relationship with motherhood, Tamblyn goes on to urge the reader to take a deeper look at Hillary Clinton – whom was the Democratic Nominee for President at the time – and how Clinton is viewed through the lens society has crafted for women.
Although the essay was written in the context of the 2016 presidential election, which is now over, Tamblyn’s hope for a future that is more fair for women lives on – even if only in the hilariously fake name of her new-born daughter.
