My husband and I absolutely loved Lauren in her role as Claire on Six Feet Under…one of our all time favorite shows. Congratulations to Lauren and her husband. I hope their son has her beautiful red hair! Can’t wait to hear what they’ve named him!

Don’t like the name, for a baby or adult. Sorry. Never have. And it doesn’t help that it’s the name of a bad guy on Desperate Housewives. It just really has the connotation of an old, not so nice or attractive guy for me. Maybe they should have tried “Olson?” Then we’d think of Little House! At least that’s a positive. Wondering if Orson’s a family name?!

What wonderful news. I thought that Lauren was superb as Claire in Six Feet Under and passing so convincingly as a 16 year old when she was actually 23 was quite an achievement. I wish all three a healthy and happy life!
