Family Photo: The Farmiga-Hawkeys Beach It

Sandy stroll!

Vera Farmiga and husband Renn Hawkey take their children — daughter Gytta Lubov, 9 months, and son Fynn, 2½ — down to the shore on Thursday in Malibu.

The actress, 38, is currently promoting her directoral debut, Higher Ground, which she was asked to take the reins on just after discovering that she was expecting her second child.

“First trimester of my pregnancy was pre-production of the film. We shot in second trimester, and post-production was in third trimester,” Farmiga tells NPR. “So I was birthing a human, at the same time birthing this film.”

Sweet family. I saw a picture of Gytta in People Mag…she has chubby cheeks and is absolutely adorable.

Aw, look at those beautiful chubkins! I think Fynn looks like his mother – at least he has her eyes.

I thought he was married to Courtney Wagner? (Natalie Woods daughter?)

Looks like Gytta got sand in her eyes…poor baby, I used to hate when that happened to my little ones at the beach.

Hea on

Sarah S – I think she’s perhaps asleep or really tired?

Cute family photo! Does anyone know how Gytta is pronounced?

Anon, she named her daughter after her Ukranian roots. That being said, I’m guessing “Gytta” is pronounced “Gitta”, and “Lubov” is pronounced exactly how it looks (it’s also the word for “love” in Russian and Ukranian).

Love this family! She’s a great actress, and her husband is the keyboard player for one of my favorite bands, Deadsy!
