Amber Tamblyn and David Cross Share First Pic of Baby Daughter Marlow’s Face With Funny Observation

“Somehow my wife gave birth to a 55 year old furrier from Crown Heights,” writes David Cross. “I’m investigating.”

Meet Marlow, the one-month-old daughter of the Chipwrecked actor and Amber Tamblyn, who re-Tweeted the picture with the caption: “Seriously guys, Marlow is asking for a friend: who farted?”

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star announced that she had welcomed her first child via Instagram on February 21, offering just a peek of the newborn’s tiny foot and joking that they’d named her “Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey jr.”

In all seriousness, Funkinstein Mustard Witch would have been a pretty sweet name. And probably would have landed them on this list.

Tamblyn, who campaigned for Hillary Clinton last year, later revealed her daughter’s real name when she proudly shared a letter written to Marlow by the former secretary of state, who sent these well wishes to the newborn:

“Dear Marlow: Happy Birthday. Your birth has been a source of great joy for your parents, Amber and David, and your vast community of admirers and champions. I send my best wishes to you for a lifetime of amazing accomplishments and adventures, full of love, learning, and friendship. With warm regards, I am Sincerely yours, Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

“The one day I decide to put mascara on Hillary Clinton sends us this letter for our daughter,” the actress penned on March 13. “Crying now. A letter from one spectacular woman who has lived so much to another who has only just begun.”
