She told E! the source of the baby’s name.
“Joe, her middle name, is after my grandfather—his name was Joseph, and he meant the world to me,” Brie explains in the publication. “Birdie is because my husband and his whole family are ‘B’s. And he married me, a ‘B’ too, so his one request was that our kids have ‘B’ names. I didn’t realize how hard it was to find girl ‘B’ names, but we both came across Birdie and knew that was it!”
In an exclusive chat with E! News on set, the mom-to-be also discussed some of the contenders that were previously in the running.

They wouldn’t be the first with a daughter named Birdie. Cougartown actress Busy Phillips has a daughter with that name as well.
