Congratulations are in order for Danny Masterson and Bijou Phillips.

In a surprising announcement, the That ’70s Show star, 37, and his model-actress wife, 33, welcomed their first child – a daughter named Fianna Francis – on Friday, February 14. The proud new papa shared the exciting news on Instagram Wednesday.

“Hello friends. Beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter Fianna Francis Masterson!” the new dad captioned a photo of himself with his newborn resting on his chest. “Mom and baby are doing amazing. You can all refer to me as dj dadpants from now on . . . Wifey @bijouphillips will post a pic on her insta too. Cheers!”


The Almost Famous actress went on to share a photo of their sweet baby girl. “Fianna Francis Masterson, 2/14/14 8LBS, 5OZ, 21in, she is a perfect valentine!!!” the proud new mom wrote.

After dating for eight years, Masterson and Phillips were wed in October 2011 at an Irish castle.

    Aw, congratulations to them! Loved Danny on That ’70s Show.

    Was about to say how cute it was that “Francis” was chosen in honor of Danny’s brother, but then I remembered that was only the character Christopher played (on Malcolm in the Middle). Oops.

    Fianna? Another made up name.

    • klutzy_girl

      Nope, it’s not made up. I checked on Namberry, and Fianna is a real Irish name.

      Why do you care whether it’s made up or not? It’s not your kid.

  • amanda

    I didn’t even know they got married, let alone were pregnant. Guess their good at keeping things low key. Except for the announcement on Instagram.

    Is she Busy Phillips’ sister?

    • Lizzie

      No, she is the sister (half sister, I think) to Mackenzie Phillips, and from the Mama and Papa’s family band.

        thanks – i thought Busy was part of that family too!

    “Why do you care whether it’s made up or not? It’s not your kid”

    They didn’t say they cared, they just made a comment. You don’t have to be so mean.

      “Fianna? Another made up name.”

      That was the first comment, and sorry, but the implication there IS that there is something wrong with a ‘made up name’.

      Feel free to be a b*tch, but just don’t be surprised when someone else is a b*tch right back at you. Easier to just not be one in the first place.

    every name was “made up” at one point

    A rediculous name.
