Busy Philipps has a big thing in common with A Case of You co-star Evan Rachel Wood. While at the screening for their film at the Regal Theatre Stadium last Saturday night – the actresses discovered they were pregnant the same day.
According to US Weekly – during the panel the two recalled how they were both pregnant during filming. After Philipps said, “I got pregnant October 10th” – Woods chimed in, “Oh my God! I swear to God that’s the day that I got pregnant.”
Philipps then responded with a “Shut up!”
The Cougar Town actress and her husband Marc Silverstein welcomed Cricket on July 2 while Wood gave birth to a baby boy with husband Jamie Bell on July 30.
Philipps also said that Wood’s character Birdie was not named after her 5-year-old daughter and had asked Justin Long – who wrote the screenplay – about it.
She explained, “It was something else. But, I do remember reading it — and because we are friends with Justin outside of this movie we did ask him, my husband asked.”
She also spoke about the milestones “Crickles” has reached.
“She just started rolling from her tummy to her back, so that’s exciting. She laughs really hard now.”
Referring to Birdie she said, “she’s interested in cuddling and loving and singing. But, when I ask her, for instance, to get like a diaper cloth or a burp cloth or a diaper for me, she says, ‘Mom, that’s boring and I don’t want to do that.’”
At another event Philipps talked about getting back into shape.
“I’m a girl that likes to work out. Even when I hate it, I like it,” she told E! News at the 2013 Elle Women in Hollywood Gala. “I’m trying to run a mile for every month my daughter is.”
