LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- It’s a boy for “Girls” star Jemima Kirke.
A source told Us Weekly that the actress and her husband, Michael Mosberg, welcomed a son earlier this month.
“Jemima and Mike had the baby about a week ago. It’s a boy named Memphis,” the source told the mag.
“Girls” creator Lena Dunham may have been referring to Jemima’s news when she Tweeted on November 21, “Yesterday was amazing. One of my friends had a baby, one got engaged and the doctor told me the bump on my tongue is nothing to worry about.”
Jemima opened up about what advice she might give her child in a recent interview with Vice.
“If I have a boy, I’ll probably just tell him to be nice to women. Being humble and sweet is the hardest thing you can do. Stay confident and don’t act desperate, because I guarantee whomever you’re into actually sucks way more than you think they do,” she said. “There is always something they’re not telling you that will bring them down a notch in your eyes.”
She also said she’d be happy if she had a son and he turned out like Hannah’s (Lena Dunham) on/off boyfriend in HBO’s “Girls” — Adam.
“If my son turned out like that I’d actually be proud,” she told the mag. “He’s a smart and intuitive guy once you get to know him, but he’s really dark and that can be incredibly seductive and potent. I’d be worried if my daughter ended up with someone like that and would hope she was in a good place prior to getting involved, because that type of darkness can destroy a person.”
This is the second child for the couple. They have a daughter, Rafaella, who is 2.
