Keri Russell is reprising a familiar role: mom! The actress and her husband Shane Deary welcomed their second baby on December 27th. Daughter Willa Lou joins big brother River (4.5) in the Deary-Russell household. Russell, best known for her role in Felicity, has kept busy with various projects in addition to motherhood, including last year’s Running Wilde.
Felicity alumna Keri Russell is expecting again! This will be the second child for the actress and her husband, Shane Deary. No word on when the newest addition may arrive, but he or she will join older brother River (4) in the Russell-Deary household. In addition to preparing for the new baby, Russell has been wrapping work on her latest film project, Goats, alongside David Duchovny.
Keri Russell recently dished with CNN about the slew of creative names celebrities gave their babies in 2008. The actress speculated that the “unusual” lives led by those in the entertainment industry lead to more interesting names.
“I mean…they tend to be creative people, and maybe people are more creative with their names, too,” she said. “Or [they] feel like they don’t have to be so confined to tradition because it’s such an nontraditional line of work.”
Russell and hubby Shane Deary chose an unusual name for their own son, River, who is eighteen months old.
