Break out the blue balloons and cigars. Another young couple in Los Angeles has entered the throes of parenthood, hurrah!
Thirty-seven-year-old actor KaDee Strickland, best known for her role in the television series Private Practice and her 39-year-old hubby Jason Behr, best known for his role in the television series Roswell, brought their first child into the world, a bounding baby boy on October 17, reports People.
The lovebirds, who met on the Grudge movie set in 2004, have chosen the celebrity baby name Atticus for their Hollywood Hills wonder-boy.
Reminiscent of the beloved character Atticus Finch, who was Scout’s wise-lawyer father in Harper Lee’s classic 1960 novel To Kill a Mockingbird, the name is Latin in origin and means. The name is becoming increasingly popular, ranked 300th most chosen baby name in 2012 according the the US Government Social Security Administration. This little guy will share the name with the son of Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix.
We’re delighted for this new Hollywood family — and sending an Atii-Kiss your way! (Yes, that was bad. Very, very bad. But we just couldn’t help ourselves: Mwah!)
