Jemima Kirke Welcomes Son Memphis

It’s a boy for this girl.

Jemima Kirke gave birth to her second child last week, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

The baby, reportedly a son named Memphis, is said to have arrived Tuesday, Nov. 20.

The Girls star, 27, and husband Michael Mosberg are already parents to 2-year-old daughter Rafaella Israel.

Kirke, who’s also an artist, didn’t find out the sex of the baby prior to delivery.

“If I have a boy, I’ll probably just tell him to be nice to women,” she told VICE recently. “Being humble and sweet is the hardest thing you can do.”

The second season of the hit show premieres Jan. 13 on HBO.

I actually heard elsewhere the full name of the baby is Memphis Kirke Mosberg, meaning she used her maiden name Kirke as the middle name. It works though. Congrats!

It’s wonderful what she said about teaching her son to respect women… if only ALL mothers did that with their sons, what a different planet this would be.

@obvious, let’s not forget Travis Barker’s daughter Alabama…

She’s gorgeous. Congrats on the baby.

Congratulations to the Mosbergs! Love the name Memphis Kirke; has a nice ring to it, and love the fact it’s her maiden name as the middle name, honoring her family name, as well.

Maybe Memphis can hang out with Tennessee Toth! ;) Anyway, congrats to them! Does anyone know if either of them has Israeli heritage (I’m wondering because of their daughter’s middle name)?

Interesting that she’d name her son after an Egyptian goddess… Oh how names change. Then again, look at hers :) It’s cool regardless. Congrats to the family!

Memphis on

Well I like the name :)

Harley, I’d bet anything she named him after the city not the goddess, but yes Memphis is an Egyptian Goddess and you are SO smart for knowing that. Congratulations!
