Hillary Clinton Sent Amber Tamblyn's Daughter A Letter, No Big Deal

Tamblyn sneakily revealed her child's name when she posted the letter.

Amber Tamblyn and David Cross recently welcomed a daughter, and she’s already got a famous friend wishing her a “lifetime of amazing accomplishments and adventures.” 

On Monday, Tamblyn posted a photo on Instagram of a letter Hillary Clinton wrote for her daughter on Feb. 15. In her sweet message, the former secretary of state said the newborn’s birth has “been a source of great joy” for Tamblyn and Cross and wished her luck in the coming years.

“I send my best wishes to you for a lifetime of amazing accomplishments and adventures, full of love, learning and friendship.”

In the caption of her post, Tamblyn, who volunteered for Clinton’s presidential campaign, wrote that the letter made her cry.

“A letter from one spectacular woman who has lived so much to another who has only just begun,” she wrote. “My heart is as full as this diaper I’m about to change.”

Tamblyn also sneakily revealed her daughter’s name. In February, the actress and activist jokingly announced her daughter’s name was “Dauphinoise Petunia Brittany Scheherazade Von Funkinstein Mustard Witch RBG Cross Tamblyn-Bey Jr.” According to Clinton’s letter, it is actually Marlow Alice Cross.

Whether she goes by Marlow or little Petunia, it looks like she’s found a fan in Hillary.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story indicated that Tamblyn’s daughter’s name is Marlowe. According to the letter, it is Marlow.
