English actress Emily Mortimer is a mom-of-two!

The Pink Panther star welcomed daughter May via c-section on Friday, Jan. 15 in New York City, according to the UK’s Telegraph newspaper. Just three days later, Emily’s sister Rosie delivered a son in London. Their mom Penny confirmed the happy news, noting:

“It has been a very exciting few days.”

May is the second child for Emily and husband Alessandro Nivola, who married in 2003. She joins big brother Samuel John, 6, at home.

I bet the star of “Lovely and Amazing” will have a lovely and amazing little girl. Congrats!

Mary on

May is my daughter’s middle name, so sweet and feminine!!

daniela on

Love the name! Simple but sweet. My mama’s middle name was Mae and I plan to use it if I have another girl.

Michelle on

So she is a “Mum” rather than a “Mom”!

Maybe it’s just me but is there a reason why these posts state who delivered how? I don’t recall seeing posts reporting that a baby was born vaginally, so why must we differentiate when a baby is born by c-section? Simply stating that she welcomed her daughter on Friday seems more than sufficient.

What a cool name, because that’s my name..only mine is spelled MEY but still pronounced the same. =)

Angela I also noted that and found it a bit odd. Anyway, I think its great that she had a baby at the ‘same’ time as her sister. Assuming they’re close – it would be great to have someone going through similar experiences at the same time.

Angela and Cape Town Mum- I’m guessing it’s because a lot of people tend to get curious as to how a baby was born. 🙂 Plus, people tend to speculate in the comments sometimes whether a celeb had a C-section or not, so saying up front that it was a C-section when it has been confirmed that it was stops the speculating before it even begins. 🙂
