Sarah Drew will probably be having a few mom’s nights in for a couple of weeks, as she and husband Peter Lanfer get used to life with a new baby again! The couple have welcomed their second baby and first daughter: Hannah Mali Rose arrived 3.5 weeks early on December 3rd. The Moms’ Night In star took to Twitter to share her happy news and explain the thoughts that went into choosing Hannah’s name:, “I’ve always loved the name ‘Hannah’. It means ‘grace’ or ‘favor’ and Hannah was also a Biblical figure who had tremendous faith in God.”
“There is a beautiful red bird named the Mali Firefinch for our redheaded early bird. She came 3.5 weeks early with a full head of red hair,” Drew continued. “In Thailand, Mali is the word for the jasmine flower. The scent of the jasmine flower has the ability to fill a room with sweetness.”
“A close variant in Hebrew is the word male’/maleah meaning full or fullness of God. Hannah was born on the cusp of the full moon. After several days of rain in California the moon was amazing when Peter was driving home to be with Micah the day after Hannah was born.” Micah is the couple’s 2-year-old son.
As for Rose, Drew said, “We chose Rose because it is one of the few flowers that blooms in December and we liked the way the names sounded together.”
