Cougar town star Busy Philipps has defended her decision to name her newborn baby Cricket.

The 34-year-old actress, who welcomed her second daughter on Wednesday (10Jul13), took to social networking site Twitter to defend her little girls’ unusual name.

She posted: "It's weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names. Guys, my kids will be (in) therapy for lots of reasons, I'm sure."

Busy, whose first name is Elizabeth, also thanked the supporters who sent positive messages, adding, "Thank you all for the warm wishes for our new little ladybug!"

Philipps also raises daughter, Birdie Leigh, with her husband Marc Silverstein.
