Cougar Town actress Busy Philipps announced her second pregnancy on Instagram yesterday with a cheeky picture of  a positive pregnancy test.

“So this happened…” she captioned alongside the snapshot of a “pregnant” Clearblue Easy stick.

Philipps gave birth to daughter Birdie Leigh Silverstein (father is hubby, Marc Silverstein) in 2007 and rationalized her baby’s eccentric name due to her own.

“After having grown up with a nickname, there is no way I’m naming my kid one thing and calling her something else,” she explained.“The first day of school [or] anytime there was a substitute teacher, I had to explain that I preferred to be called this weird adjective instead of Elizabeth (she was born Elizabeth Jean). And people would really give me the look that I was a little strange!”

Should Busy continue on her path of opting for quirky nicknames or give baby no. 2 something more traditional?
