Since Amber Tamblyn announced her pregnancy last year, the actress and her husband, David Cross, have pretty much been crushing the social media game. And to top it all off, they’ve finally gifted the Internet with the first full photo of their daughter, Marlow Alice Cross.
“Somehow my wife gave birth to a 55-year-old furrier from Crown Heights. I’m investigating,” Cross wrote alongside the adorable shot on Instagram. Tamblyn regrammed the picture, adding her own caption. “My daughter is growing her payos out nicely,” she wrote, referring to Marlow’s hair, which she thinks resembles the long side locks some Hasidic Jewish men leave uncut. “Good morning, world! Marlow loves you!”
This is only the second photo we’ve seen of Marlow’s face so far—Cross shared one about a week ago of Tamblyn cradling Marlow, whose face is mostly obscured by a hat and blanket. “Baby’s first cabbage,” he wrote. We assume cabbage is the Tamblyn-Cross family’s cute nickname for swaddling.
The couple has been faithfully chronicling Marlow’s tiny existence over the past few months. Tamblyn announced her pregnancy in a personal essay for Glamour back in October. “I’m pregnant, with a daughter on the way. I think constantly about the world I am bringing her into,” she wrote.
When the baby finally arrived, Tamblyn shared the news with her Instagram followers with a hilarious post. “David and I are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey jr. #TheFutureIsFemale,” she jokingly captioned a video of Marlow’s foot. She kept things refreshingly honest by sharing a snarky mirror selfie after some milk leaked out of her breasts and stained her shirt . “Who Wore It Better? Left tit or right tit?” she wrote alongside the shot.
Oh, and Amber Tamblyn revealed her daughter’s name to the world in perhaps the most epic fashion possible: by sharing a letter Hillary Clinton mailed to Marlow, welcoming her to the world. We’d say Marlow’s life is off to a pretty great start.
