It’s a girl for All My Children star Aiden Turner and wife Megan! TV Guide reports that the couple — married since 2006 — welcomed daughter Ciella Larryn Turner at 12:20 a.m. on Friday, August 21st. Weighing in at 9 lbs., 13 oz., she is the first child for both.

Her name has special significance for the proud new mom, Aiden reveals.

“Her middle name comes from Megan’s father, Larry Marshall, who died just two weeks ago after a year fighting cancer. We are very happy she arrived so healthy and so beautiful. We wish her Grandpa Larry was here to hold her.”

The pregnancy was announced in March.

How would you pronounce that? Like See-ella? Or like Seal-eya?

I think this is a beautiful, different name! They could call her Ci Ci or Ella for short. Love it :] And I also love how her middle name has meaning- her grandpa would be so honored. Congrats!

pretty name, not sure how you’d pronounce it though…? Not keen on Celia though, no offence to any out there, lol, but their baby – I like ‘a’ ending girls’ names generaly, hope it’s pronounced ‘See-ella’..!

….nice too that they honoured her late grandfather, must be very bittersweet with his passing being so recent.

Since her middle name honors her grandpa, I’m guessing it’s pronuced “Lair-in” rather than “Lore-in”. 🙂
