Busy Philips is making her mark on the most underrated sitcom on television, Cougar Town. And the one who we used to love as Audrey on Dawson’s Creek is opening up about her 2-year-old daughter Birdie, and whether or not she is ready for baby no. 2!
On Potty Training Birdie: “She’s great. The biggest thing of recent months is the potty training which she basically did on her own. I feel so lucky! When we went to Hawaii to shoot the season finale of Cougar Town 6 weeks ago, she didn’t want to wear her diapers anymore because it was too hot. So she just took them off and started using the potty.”
Her Favorite Mommy Moments: “Every day there’s something new and fantastic that happens! My daughter is very cuddly and sweet and has gotten to the point where throughout the day she’ll throw her arms around me and say, ‘I love you mommy, you’re the best,’ which is really sweet and makes me feel so lucky that I have a cuddly kid because not all kids are really cuddly. She’s a really sweet, thoughtful kid.”
The Possibility Of Baby No. 2: “Not imminently. It’s really difficult working on a show with long hours. I was so lucky that the first year of Birdie’s life I didn’t work. I did the pilot of Cougar Town and I think I worked a total of seven days the first year of her life! I was really able to be there with her and be a full-time mom. I didn’t even have a nanny – or any help – for the first 6 months. I would like to think that with a second child I’d be able to give them the same amount of attention and time. That’s just not possible when you’re doing a network television show. We’ll see, I’m still young. Who knows what will happen in the future.”
Philipps is an absolute delight on Cougar Town and if you are not watching it, you are wholeheartedly missing out on an amazingly hilarious show. Do what you can to catch an episode before the season ends.
And how adorable is the name Birdie? I just love it! What do you think? Is it original or just plain ole’ celebrity crazy?
